Here I am, the day after New Year's Day, 2009, taking a break between an RNA extraction and it's counterpart DNA extraction. I have pondered the last year a bit, and pondered the coming year. I have come to a number of conclusions. First of all, I am not going to do the 101 things in 1001 days. If you are doing them, great for you, more power to you. I, however, would rather approach them as a general "to-do" list and some resolutions, if you will. (Not NY resolutions, I think those are generally a bad idea. It's much better to come up with things about your life at various points that need reassessment or tweaking.) So, from here on out, the items in my list will not necessarily be quantifiable. Things will be added to the list as the mood strikes me, and come the end of 2009 I will re-evaluate and see where things stand.
J grows up more every day. He now reliably says "dog," a lot...a lot more, in fact, than anything else. He also says Mamam and once said "aboo" while covering his face with one hand, an indication that he wants to play peek-a-boo. He also loves to cruise around the coffee table, couch, and pretty much anything else he stands up and holds onto. In less than one week, he will be a year old. My goodness, how time flies.
I am desperately hoping to go shopping with one of my best friends this weekend. She's in town for the holidays on a break before her last semester of law school (yay!) and I only get to see her about once or twice a year. So hopefully we'll get to shop and I can get a new pair of jeans, a good sports bra (recs welcome!!) and a long sleeved Tshirt (boy, I'm so spendy...:-p). Speaking of shopping, and being spendy, have you looked at my other blog (yes, I know that the address is spelled wrong)? I haven't done terribly much with it yet, but I am working on trying to make a comprehensive guide to living well on a budget.
Here's to a prosperous and happy 2009, with safe deliveries and healthy babies to those who are expecting new little ones, and happy pregnancies to those who are wanting them, and new jobs to those who have lost them.
