In Review

I had this dream that I would write 100 blogs this year.  Once every 3 or 4 days seemed like an obtainable goal.  But no dice.  I did write more this year than any year before - which feels like progress.

I want to write more.  That's a good thing to think of for 2011.

I have been thinking a lot about 2010 this morning (in the 20 minutes since I woke up) and I have come to the realization that this may have been the hardest year yet.  While all years have had their obstacles, it seems like 2010 was the first that really put me through the ringer.  But here's the thing - I don't want to dwell on the hard and the crappy and the sad - I want to focus on the wonderful and amazing:

I got to go to Hawaii.

And Italy.
And Paris.

And Nantucket.
AND New York.

My baby siblings both got it done - graduation wise.  My lovely T-bone got engaged. My dad got married. I re-met wonderful, local family.  It goes on and on.

And now I will clean my house in preparation for a few lovely people to come celebrate.

In 2011 I would like to:
-revisit the whole gym 5 times a week thing (I am hoping I can join a gym closer to where I live to make this much easier)
-write more  - a blog post every 3 days should be easy...
-read more - a book every two weeks.  With reviews on this blog!  Huzzah!

Happy New Year.

I'll write more if you write more. Wanna do a RaTiWriMoBlo (I clearly just made that up) with me? As long as the occasional school assignment counts.

Sounds good to me. I think I am trying to get to 150 blog posts. And 42 books in 52 weeks. Its nice to give yourself a concrete goal.

I think I'm gonna go for twice a week. Which means I have to write another one in the car on the way back to New Orleans, but fuck it. I've got shit to say.

Wait, can I say that?

She's pint-sized and amazing.
