"My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can." ~Cary Grant

After the ball has dropped and the purchase of a new calendar has been made, one may feel a sense of new beginning. After a year like 2008-Let me tell you, have I been waiting for simply that-a fresh start.
I'm not going to sit and make new year's resolutions for 2009. Really, how many of us follow through with those anyhow?
With 2009, I will remember good and bad from the previous year-and pray for better!
In May of last year, I made a difficult decision. I ended my 8 and a half year relationship (4 1/2 married) with my soon to be ex-husband. I ended a huge chapter in my life, a time that dates back to being a "silly teenager".
Speaking of the teen years...I suddenly feel as if I am re-living that stage of my life in a sense. Living at home with Mommy is difficult after you have left the nest! Instead of my walls being infested with boy band posters/etc. -I now share this tiny bedroom with my daughter.
Oh, how life has changed. . . . .

Blogger, -how does this work??

Happy 2009!
Hello everyone/anyone!
It's me Emily (therealslimemmy-my AOL screen name). It has been quite some time since I have last written in an online journal. I use to blog on AOL journals before they decided to close. Some of you may remember me from "Emily's Purple Pages".
I have decided after much thought to reopen a new blog titled "One Step At A Time". So many things are new or have changed in my life..and well the title just seemed very appropriate.
I hope here on blogger I will be able to find my old friends from AOL (I miss you all), and even meet some new faces. I have truly missed blogging.
With that being said, Welcome to my blog! I look forward to sharing my life with you. Please, don't be shy and say hello! Feel free to also leave your link if you blog as well!
I'm a little rusty so bare with me!
