I’m still here!

Good thing I don’t make New Year resolutions. I’ve been too busy to even think about that – too busy since my last post in November. My advice for the new year is don’t join too many organizations, and if you do, for heavens sake don’t be on all their boards; learn how to say no and not give in; and don’t let your daughters have big weddings. Also, a little glass of Limoncello on ice, sipped slowly, has a wonderful calming effect.

I hope to be back soon to blogging. My next post will feature the joys, sorrows, and surprises of publishing your family stories.

    Welcome back, Linda. It looks like you’ve learned some valuable lessons from the past few months of frenzied activity. Congratulations on your daughters’ weddings. No wonder you needed that Limoncello. (great choice!) Looking forward to your posts. Happy New Year!

    Hard to believe that at our age. We still have a hard time saying “no.” I think it’s getting easier for me, but I doubt it will ever come easily. Best wishes on what sounds like a magical year for you and your family. Hang in there! 😄

  3. Thank you, but I am still stuck in yes-land. I enjoy all I do too much to quit (plus they look good on my resume!). I am, however, doing a good job saying no to all the other interesting opportunities that keep coming my way. Except for that wedding planning thing…

    In case you haven’t figured it out yet, “yes” in Japan means really “no” here. LOL But life has quite a few distractions, yes? 🙂
