I’ve heard that as you get older, time seems to fly by more quickly. I’ve certainly found that to be true recently, as 2015 seems to have vanished quite quickly. I’m writing this while sitting on my sofa, with a bowl of fruit and a cup of tea, my Christmas tree still lit up, reflecting on the past year and easing into my day. Before I get too comfy or distracted, here’s my annual post on my resolutions for the new year and how I fared in my resolutions for last year!

A few months ago, I received a questionnaire about the possibility of the summoned for jury duty. Yikes, was my first reaction! I filled it out, indicated I was self-employed and mailed it off, hoping that was the end of it.
Then I received a summons to actually appear in court (in Ontario) the day after Thanksgiving, which was today. I’ll be completely up front and say I’ve been trying to figure out how to get out of it, ever since I got the summons. I have no issue with doing your civic duty, but I’ve yet to find a client who will pay me while I do that! Such is the nature of being self-employed, no work = no pay.

It’s that time of year again – time for a review of 2012 and noting what to resolve to do in 2013.
I say this every year – time flew by! As my dad just told me, it seems to fly by faster the older you get. It certainly does! Today is December 31st and my sister & I are visiting my dad and his wife, and loving the few relaxing days away from home. Along with relaxing with family, this is my favourite, if not humbling, part of the new year process: reviewing what I said I would do this year!

Happy new year everyone! It’s January 1st, 2011 and, like many of you, I take some time around the new year to look back on my last year and look forward to the new. It’s always fun to take a look at last year’s resolutions to see how you fared a year later. I’m not sure if others do this too, but most of the time the resolutions I wrote the previous year, I don’t look at again during the year! Ugh! No wonder resolutions are not very successful for me!
