First order of business: Yesterday’s trivia question (and drink promise) still holds. I’ll post the answers on Monday.
Next order: Ringing in the New Year!
I looked at what I wrote last year at this time, and I realized that I ended it with, “Here’s to fewer miscommunications in 2009.“
I don’t know that I would call 2009 a year of fewer miscommunications. There were definitely some big ones – some far worse than others. But overall? 2009 was not terrible. I know, I know – that’s not the greatest praise. But it’s something.
- 2009 is the year that I really became a runner. And I have the t-shirts, the medals, and the injuries to prove it.
- It’s the year that I traveled to Buenos Aires with Cla, for a much needed and well-timed vacation.
- It was the first time that I filed my own taxes – with minimal adult supervision.
- It was the year that the first of our high school girlfriends got married, and we all took a pole-dancing class as part of her bachelorette party.
2009 was fun, exciting, sometimes painful and heartbreaking, but ultimately positive. And it feels like it just flew by.
I’ve been hearing people say that they feel that 2010 is going to be a good year, and I have to agree. I feel it in my fingers. I feel it in my toes.
2010 will be the year that I run my first marathon, see another friend get married, see my nephew get married (that makes me feel old), and turn 25. A whole quarter century!
And I can’t wait to see what else it’ll bring.
Happy New Year!
