Happy New Year !

Hi Kittens,

Happy New Year ! I did not do anything special, I actually worked until midnight. I am also working today so I am happy that I am getting paid ! Unfortunately I started off today at work with someone on our site having an accident. Right as I arrived. Poor guy.

I also just moved, so I am in my new place. I have to pick up another carload tonight and then I am officially out. This was such a last minute decision that I made two weeks ago. I didn't even think about moving until the week before Christmas. Luckily because most of my stuff is in storage, moving has been easy for me. The people I lived with have been nice and we were friends before I moved in, so they didn't piss me off or anything. I just needed more space.

I have another month to clean out my storage unit and I plan to give away a lot of stuff. I don't believe in selling it, I would rather see it go to people out there who are down on their luck and there are a lot of people out there. I think that as long as you have a roof over your head, and food on the table that you are lucky. I sure feel lucky.

I am a very sentimental person, and since I was 15 I have saved every card/letter/wedding invite that anyone has ever given me. So I decided to make some changes, and I threw out a lot of stuff that I've saved from people I haven't seen in years that I've kept in storage. Or stuff from friends that I've lost contact with. All I really keep now is stuff from my family. I still have all the letters and cards from my grandparents, parents and family in Austria.

I also looked through my box of photographs I used to take as a child. I was such a curious kid and the littlest things fascinated me such as sunsets, squirrels, flowers, buildings. They still do, which is apparent on my photo blog. I thought my pictures back then were good. My dad loves to snap pictures and I wanted to be like him. But looking back, my pictures weren't that good even though I was convinced I they were. Thank GOD for digital cameras is all I have to say. I got rid of most of the pictures I had accumulated, as I have it all on negatives.

As for my new years resolutions, I have a few. My main one is getting a job in my field. That and maybe getting a place on my own by the end of the year. The place I am moving into is pretty nice, but I am still sharing it.

Anyway, that is all for now my little furballs.

Oh, speaking of furballs, here is a little something I think you kitty lovers out there could appreciate:

Abrazos y besitos !

Moving is the pits. I hate doing it.

You have your act together well.
You're making new beginnings and getting things done. I admire that

Moving is supposed to be all about lightening the load!

I am not much of a cat fan myself but I found the end funny with the dog coming into the picture. It made me think ... what if it was a pit bull... Would the video get a million views then?

Best regards and happy new years.

That was a really cute video! Loved it!
I had no idea you moved...none at where are you now?

Happy New Year!
