2006 Highlights

So I only made it to 11:15 last night. Oh well right? I still made my resolutions, and as of day 1, I have completed everything I wanted too. 1 day down only a gazillion more to go. I actually love making resolutions. I love the chance to start over, and try again. Who doesn't love a do-over? I know that the success rate for resolutions is not very high. But, it doesn't hurt to try.To try to be better. 2006 really had it's ups and downs. So I decided to do what the tv stations do...record the highlights, the highs and the lows. Here goes:
