Happy New Year!

Well today is the 1st of January 2010. While I am very thankful that I survived 2009 without hopefully any perminent damage, I am still really apprehensive about what 2010 will bring.

There are big changes happening at work, I will not know if they are going to be good or not, we will have to see. I know that I am going to be busy for the next few months so at least that should keep me out of some trouble...(yeah right). I realy have to be on my best game.

School starts again in the next few weeks. It's my last year if I can survive my schedule. 4 classes this spring, 3 summer, 4 fall and then the great walk. I know that priorities will need to shift and I will not get as much computer time for fun stuff as I will like but it will need to be done. School is driving me crazy. I just want out!!

My daughter is going to be starting kindergarden this fall. I am terrified that she will be bored. She is truly too damn smart for her own good. I am also going to try to work on her to get her writing down. Maybe even try some reading, I am not sure. I don't want to push too hard but she soaks up this stuff like the best sponge in the world and I don't mean SpongeBob. I really want her to love learning not feel like it's a chore.

I could be a better housekeeper, and I could really start cooking better meals at home. Actually I would love to figure out how my mom did it. She worked full time and then kept an immaculate house. We NEVER ate out unless it was a special occasion. She didn't get help from my dad. My brother and I had chores but if it wasn't good enough, lord knows it got redone.

I need to get in better health. I have a really good genetic make up but that will only take me so far. Enough said.

I need to figure out how to work better in relationships or get out of them. Being lazy in that will not cut it anymore. It's too stressful and really unhealthy.

I just need to start taking care of myself so that I can take care of others. Wish me luck!
