Good news, bad news. I'll give you the bad news first. The nurse who is giving us the updates let us know that we should add a good chunk of time to whatever the surgeon told us. So what we thought would be a 3.5 hour event will more likely be 4-5 hours. Having started at 11:15 we expect to see Linny by 4:00. That's the bad news.
The good news is that she is handling the anesthesia well and the surgery is going forward as planned, with no surprises or unusual discoveries. And that we have all of you guys out there pulling for her! Thanks!xoxox

1. Complete: Being complete with the events of the past year helps you to clearly see the lessons you have learned and allows you to move on to new opportunities that await you in 2008.
Draw a line down the middle of a piece of paper. On the left hand side, write Highlights of 2007. Under that heading list all of the highlights (wins, successes, breakthroughs, etc.) of 2007. On the right hand side next to each item jot down what it means to be 'complete' with each one. On a new page, do the same thing for the Lowlights of 2007 (losses, failures, breakdowns) of the year.
2. Create: This is the fun part. Articulating your intentions for the year ahead immediately improves your chances for success.
Draw a line down the middle of a piece of paper. On the left hand side, write Highlights of 2008. Under that heading list all of the wins, successes and breakthroughs you would like to experience in the coming year. Write this list as if it has already happened, and make it as specific as possible (i.e. Instead of 'I took a vacation' put 'I went on a 5-day Carribbean cruise'). On the right hand side, write down one action you can easily take toward making it real.
Keep this document handy so you can easily refer back to it over the year. Gotta go, it's time for me to do my own list! I wish you the best for this year.
