  1. Happy new year Jess.
    You have some wonderful goals ahead of you and I hope you reach everyone!
    When I saw your pic I thought you’d chopped your hair off… it would look awesome :) just saying!

  2. Those are some great goals Jess and I know you will accomplish them. I love you and wish you all the best. Kiss Kiss

  3. Kelly… haha about the hair. Beleive me I have been tempted to chop it off but like the ability to throw it up in a ponytail easily.

    Happy New Year sweetie! I hope you are still knitting a up a storm! xo

  4. Hi Shyanne… can you believe we have known each other for over 30 years now and have remained friends through it all. I wish you and your family a happy new year. I love you to! xo

  5. That’s a great picture. (From the hair department, you can get good ponytails from as high as 3″ below the shoulder. Shorter than that always drove me crazy.)

    We are thinking of doing similarly on the house front – buying a double nearby and renting out the other half – I am kinda tired of living in a 4-plex, as nice as this old house is.

  6. Jessica~ Cute photo and great list for 09! I might have to borrow one idea though, someone to clean my messy house every once in awhile, Think Big :)

  7. Candice, I haven’t warn pig tails for so long. Yeah, I’m with you I can’t seem to hack the hair off. I had it so short at one time about 5 years ago. It was only an inch long everywhere. The pic above is 5 years worth of growth.

    And here i am wanting to buy a four-plex. Prices here in Saint John are still quite reasonable so I’m hoping it’ll all work out. Have fun looking for a new place :)

  8. Heather, The housekeeper will come in handy. I figure $30 to $40 a week for my sanity will be a good thing. I just want all the dusting, vacuuming, mopping and cleaning of the bathroom done.

  9. Blimey! ALL of these for 2009??? Ambitious to say the least. Well, it’s good to have big goals and aspirations.

    Good luck for the coming year.
