Since today is a holiday, I (Rhonda) am writing to wish everyone a wonderful New Year from both Amanda and myself. May 2019 be filled with hope, joy, love, great health, fantastic friends, and amazing music.
We hope to see many of you in Las Vegas when the band performs there in February. We haven’t been able to plan a full convention for that weekend, but we are still hoping to pull together a party. Watch this space. If anyone is able to lend a hand or give a little time to make it happen – drop us a line. We’d certainly appreciate the help!
I don’t really do New Year resolutions. There have been goals for past years, but I don’t really have writing plans, or career aspirations right now. This year, I’m hoping to focus on getting my family settled, and using the year as a sort of personal rediscovery and relaunch! Rest assured that I’ll still be blogging about Duran Duran. We’ll see where the year takes us!
Have a wonderful New Year’s Day. As you read this, I’m making breakfast and watching the Rose Parade with my kids. Later, I think we’re going to take a hike on one of the nearby trails. I also need to take down holiday decorations, and then I have to get ready for school to begin tomorrow.
For the first time since I began homeschooling, we are going to be doing it all at home on our own. In the past, my youngest has gone to a learning or resource center twice a week. That’s given her a chance to have a break from me and make friends. I’m hoping to eventually get back to that kind of schedule (if not have her go back to a traditional school), but at least for now, it’s all home, all the time.
Not sure if I should be asking for people to send vodka or prayers…or both. I’ll let you know how that’s going in the coming weeks…
