2009: Year In Review...

It's been another year. That's really all I can say about it.

I feel like I spend so much time thinking about what I didn't do, resolutions I didn't keep, things I didn't get. I'm making a resolution right now to start being more about the positive.

What did I accomplish in 2009?

Well, many things.

-I celebrated three years with Robb in February.
-I wrote a script in April starring my alter ego Pearl and Maury Povich.
-I (Robb, too!) adopted Marbles in late April.
-I successfully threw a surprise 30th birthday party for Robb in June.
-I visited San Diego in July on the longest (and best) vacation of my life.
-I went to L.A. for the first time ever (and I'm never going back).
-I wrote a novel in November starring Jesus and his posse in space.
-I volunteered to be a Co-ML for NaNo at the TGIO party in December.
-I upheld my 2008 resolution to work out regularly all year.
-Concurrently, I'm in the best shape of my life.
-I've written quite a few poems that I'm actually proud of.

What do I want to do in 2010?

Well, here's a few things:

-As I said before, be more positive.
-Continue working out regularly.
-Write a script in April.
-Write a novel in November.
-Edit a novel.
-Submit at least one poem for publication.
-Find a full time job.

So, yeah. There we are. The obligatory list post for 2009 and the resolutions for 2010, all at once.

I'm feeling good about this.

What is the biggest thing you did this year? And what is the most important thing you'd like to accomplish next year?

Ok - Jesus in space = must read. :-)

I got knocked up in 09 ;-) I'll give birth in '10.

Biology aside - I've got that novel that needs a good re-write and to be sent to the consultant for further hacking...I mean editing.

Good luck with your resolutions!

Thanks! Editing a novel has always been something that's horrified me to no end. I don't know how to even START.

And hooray and congrats for the baby! So amazing!

I have done nothing as spectacular as you have but I did start blogging and it has realy become an integral part of my life. Through blogging I have come to know quite a few interesting people and you are one of them. I hope you will have a tremendous 2010. Till next year then,

Thank you so much, human! I love that you ended your comment "Out." :-) Makes me blush a little.

Your list of 2009 accomplishments seems pretty impressive to me! Maybe all of us should do that in our own way--to remind ourselves of all the things we did or that went well :)
