January 3, 2009


Gosh! I've missed writing! Work has been so crazy the last thing I want to do when I get home is get on a computer, and that's even if I come home! This holiday season was great but I am TIRED! We've been doing nothing but coming and going and I almost feel like a chicken with her head cut off. Besides, I miss my cat. Things are winding down now and it's been strange being able to sit still. I'm sure I'll get used to it. All that holiday chaos hasn't kept me from reflecting on the past year and looking forward to 2009.

I don't believe in resolutions but I do believe in goals. Resolutions didn't seem permanent enough and the fact that I never kept one for a whole year always bummed me out. Last year was the first year I set goals for myself in lieu of a resolution. So let's see how well I did. Shall we?

1. Get a new job.
Technically I did- I got a part time theatre box office job.

2. Take two grad classes.
This I did for sure. You can check my credit card statement.

3. Reduce credit card debt.
Nope. See #2.

4. Be a Weight Watchers Success Stories.
Nope a dope.

So... One and a half goals achieved. I suppose numbers three and four will carry over to this year- albeit a little revised. I wonder how well I'll do on 2009's goals:

1. Get a new full time job.
2. Reach my goal weight.
3. Compete in three triathlons.
4. Do not increase debt.
5. Get a better time for the Crystal Lake Triathlon.

This is going to be an exciting year. I can feel it in my belly.

you should sign up for the Chicago Triathlon. I hear it's a great time! My cousin keeps on trying to get me to do it but I couldn't swim half that far even if my life depended on it.
