All of the sudden it hit me that the year is over. It honestly feels like 2009 just started. Is this a sign of me getting old? Old people are always saying, “That year just flew by.” When you’re young, each year crawls by and takes forever. I always thought old people were nuts.
Jenn and I were talking about our mantra’s for 2010, and I realized it feels like just yesterday we were creating our 2009 mantra. The one goal I set out for 2009 was to try a larger variety of places for lunch. I think lasted about 2 weeks. After that I fell into the old favorites – Jimmy Johns, O’Malias, IUPUI, or for a fancy day Hoaglin. I hope I’m more successful in my 2010 amitions.
2010: The Year I Become a Grown Up. It’s a big goal really, it could encompass a lot of things, but it’s fluid and forgiving. I think it’ll be a good mantra. I’ve started this by using my Amazon.com gift card to buy a book Organizing for the right brained. Typically, I live/work in surrounded with stuff. A clean person (aka Mom) would cry looking at my bedroom most days. Usually, I don’t even notice, but every once in a while something snaps in me and I get so frustrated.
I’ve always wanted to be one of those organized people. I buy file folders and office supplies hoping it will help. But alas, I just end up need to find a place to store all my organization stuff (usually the back of the closet or floor).
2009 was completely forgettable I think. It had its highs and lows, but in general pretty uneventful. I’m expecting great things for 2010. The Year of Bess!!!
