All About MEEEEE!

My PhD appointment was cancelled last week because PhD was sick. When she called to cancel, the first thing she said was, "Are you doing okay?" And I said, "Yes!" without hesitation. Because I am okay. This last year wasn't easy for me (was yours easy? really?), but I learned some things from all the ick.

I learned:

  • I am likeable and useful and interesting and afraid of failing and overly critical of myself and a dog person.
  • It's a good idea to ask for help when you need it and people usually want to help you when you really need them to. Especially the people who love you.
  • I like to brag about 2 things: my girls and my baking. And both all 3 of those things are worth bragging about.

I'm not going to make any New Year's resolutions for 2009 because that's not my style, really. And also because I might break them and that would be failing and I'm afraid of that, you know? But there are some things I'd like to do. Maybe next year at this time we can check them off together...

I'd like to:

  • Make good progress on my novel.
  • Check out the Unitarian Church and join the choir.
  • Teach the dog a command that consistently diverts him from jumping up.
That's not too much to try to do, right? Wish me luck!

What are you going to try to do in 2009?

Let me know if the dog jumping thing works. We've been trying to get our pooch to knock it off for 3 years. She is great in all other ways, but when we have company she flings herself with complete abandon.
