Woohoo!  Have met my goal and it's time to set a new one.  I've decided that for me 6 month chunks is really hard so I'm going to make the new goals in 3 month chunks.  Some days that even seems too long, but as long as I keep meeting the goals it doesn't matter how short the length of time is.  It just matters that I met them.  :) Today is the last day of 2009...it's been quite a year.  My roommate will be home tonight and hoping she will be willing to stay awake to at least ring in the New Year together.  I know it's late for her and she'll be tired but it's just nice to at least be able to say Happy New Year and give someone a real hug.  I'm planning on staying home, but I picked up some wine yesterday that I wanted to try so that is my treat for tonight.  I've decided I'll probably play Zelda on my Wii tonight.  It's been awhile since I've played anything on that.  Or maybe I'll try my Jenga game.  Used to love the actual game of Jenga...so maybe that would be fun. I'm working on a list of things I'd like to accomplish in 2010, not resolution so much as goals.  I'm trying to keep things realistic, putting time limites on some of them, starting out small, but still a list of things to work on for 2010.  2009 was mostly a year of learning to survive without everything becoming a crisis.  Have pretty much accomplished that and so now it's time to work on finding Me.  To get involved more, to find things I enjoy, to help out more, and just be an all around better, happier person.   A few of the "rules" that I've allowed myself to break the past week are going to be put back in place within the next week.  Only one cup of coffee a day.  In bed by 1am.  Out of bed by noon.  I basically let loose to get through the holidays and just enjoy things but I know my irritability and anxiety is affected the last few days by the extra coffee and the out of whack sleep.  Tonight I'm not going to worry about it...tomorrow I'll start working on getting back on track...one step at a time. So in closing, what I think is going to be my last entry of 2009, I had an overall blessed year but am looking forward to seeing what 2010 brings.  I wish you all much health and happiness and contentment in the new year and remember that while "life is tough, God is faithful"!  (Check out the book by the same title by Sheila Walsh if you get a chance)
