End of the year bullets.


With the end of 2009 upon us, I had hoped to put together a decade in review post chronicling the 00s (is that what VH1 will be calling it: "I love the 00s"?) But once I started writing, it became clear that it would really only be interesting to me and a few other people who already aware of what's happened in my life during the past 10 years. So instead, I give you a few bullets:

  • I'm not sad to see 2009 in the rearview mirror. 2009 has been tough, and it feels like it's been one thing after another - nothing worse than what everyone deals with from time to time - but still. Good riddance 2009.
  • With my craft room and house in order (for the most part), I'm ready to start the new year and have new found inspiration for all sorts of creative endeavors. Of course, there will likely not be time to complete everything I would like, but I'll see what I can do.
  • We have some home improvement projects in the works for the next couple of months (before waterski season starts), which will keep us occupied. I am unreasonably excited about tearing up the carpet on our main floor and replacing it with something that is more wet dog paw friendly.
  • I see on Ravelry that January is National Knit Mittens Month. I'm a follower, so I am thinking that I might participate to jump start my knitting for 2010. But I have plenty of other projects I would like to start as well, so I remain on the fence.

Looking back at the bullets, it's a fairly uninteresting list. And in 2010 I resolve to (a) eat healthier, (b) exercise more, (c) stop biting my fingernails, and (d) keep my house cleaner. I'm pretty sure that's the most generic list of resolutions ever, and the same list I've had for years. But with the new year upon us, hope springs eternal.

"before waterski season starts" I like the sound of that.

I am also glad to leave 2009 behind and am looking forward to the promise of the new year.

I bit my fingernails for years (up until last November actually) and one day I just stopped. It is a tough habit to break. Good luck to you!
