Monthly Archives: January 2009


I am not goal-oriented. My laundry list of things I want to do in 2009 could fuel a ticker-tape parade, but if I deign to record them, they will only be fodder for later guilt. I could use less guilt in my life.

So, instead of anticipating a long list of things I probably won't do, I shall celebrate what I actually did accomplish in 2008.

  • Dyed my hair green.
  • Lowered my average fasting blood sugar by 10 points (10 more to go...).
  • Did better socially. Remembered more birthdays (though not as elaborately as I'd like), saw at least some of my friends more often (*waves to Marj*).
  • Started a novel.
  • Read 196 books. (no comment on the literary quality thereof)
  • Kept house cleaner than usual.
  • Built a whole lotta shelves.
  • Sold a respectable number of books.
  • Coped reasonably well with some major crap.
  • Finished painting the house.
  • Planted something out front that's still alive.
  • Spent a lot more time creating art.
  • Sent Christmas cards!
  • Did a couple major cullings of stuff.
  • Spent more quality time with the cat.

How was your year?
