For 2008 - I've chosen the word ACHIEVE. Making resolutions is great, but I want to give serious consideration as to what I truly want to ACHIEVE. So I'll be doing some random blogging from time to time about my Achievements throughout the year. I'm going to put some thought into 3 major things I want to achieve before I announce them.
