A New Year, A New Beginning

01 Jan

2016 is upon us.  2016 is here.  It is time for resolutions.  It is time for fresh starts and new beginnings.  It is a time for hope.  It is a time for plans.  It is a time to start over.  It is a clean slate.

new year 2016

2016 is going to hold several things for me.  I am going to be blogging more.  I know I’ve said that several times before, but don’t forget about that clean slate part.  I am also going to be issuing challenges to you all throughout the year, with the first being my very own Reading Challenge.  Yes, I will be doing the challenge but there may be prizes in it for you, my beautiful readers, when you complete this challenge, or any others you find interesting throughout the year.

First things first, though.  I’ve been gone for a while so how about we have some introductions again?  I’ll go first, seeing as how it’s my job to write things for you to read.  Ok.  Here we go.

Ahem.  I am Suzanne, known around some interwebz parts as ThisOilfieldWife and/or ThisOilfieldWife05.  You can follow me on Facebook at or on Twitter @thisoilfieldwife05.  I would love to talk with you on more than just here, so what are you waiting for?  Just jump on over and give me a like or a follow then come back to keep reading.  It’s ok.  I’ll wait.

Right.  Welcome back!  Shall I continue my introduction now?  Where was I?  I’m in my early thirties (high five to all my fellow dirty thirties ladies and gents out there) and have been married to my amazing hardworking oilfield husband for over ten years.  We have been together for just over fifteen years and we have two beautiful children together.  He is gone so much more than he is home, but this is the life we chose and we embrace it, though we may not always feel like giving it a smile, we fake it anyway.

I have dreams of one day becoming a published author.  I will spend this upcoming year toiling away at the keyboard to finish my novel and start the next.  I would love to be successful and be able to eventually hit the best seller’s list, but first I must write.  Pound out the words and the characters that swim around in my head talking to me and each other all the time.

Enough about me, though.  Tell me a little bit about yourself?  Like, what is your favorite genre of book to read?  What is your favorite color?  What is your favorite song?  Tell me the name of your favorite song and I will go listen to it right now.  Promise.
