So we're counting down the final hours of 2009. This year was better than 2008, emotionally and financially. I went back to silk painting, which I had missed tremendously. Last July I made a website and opened up an Etsy store to sell my painted silk scarves, and in the past month I finally sold a few. That was exciting. :)
I got struck by lightning (well, not me, but my computer, which feels like a limb most days). I took pictures, whined about getting older, talked to my Mom on the phone every night (but not until after 8pm, because that's when Jeopardy's over), lost 10 pounds, gained 10 pounds, had bad dreams about bathrooms, petted my cat on her furry little forehead just the way she likes, continued to wear my favorite black shirt even though it now has a small hole in it (I don't think it's noticeable), and, every day, told my husband that I love him.
Oh, right, and I also WROTE A NOVEL! It's not quite finished yet, I can't wait to finish it and then get started on the second draft. One of my Christmas gifts was a teensy purple 4 gig flash drive that I keep on my keychain, so I can carry my novel around with me. Honestly, my whole outlook on life changed in November, I feel like I've figured out a lot about who I am and what I'm supposed to be doing.
I wish everyone a happy and healthy and fulfilling 2010!
