I've got a blank space baby...and I'll write your name

So I'm pretty sure it's been one thousand years since I last posted, whoops. Some things that happened:

I made baked apples in my crockpot last weekend and they were DELICIOUS. In fact, I may make more next week. Just so good and easy and YUM. APPLES.

I've become a little bit obsessed with Andy Cohen. I just finished reading his diary and it was like a book-length version of US Weekly and I loooove pop culture and it just made me super happy.

I broke my bottom retainer. (Yes, I still wear retainers at night.) It's a long story but my own dentist was happy to replace it for me -- in eight weeks. I had a mini-meltdown and posted to my neighborhood association's web site asking for ortho recs. A woman commented that she worked in a dentist office and would get me in right then, so I jetted over, they put me straight in, she wrangled my insurance and even delivered the finished retainer to my mailbox that night. I mean, just BEYOND amazing. Really, really kind. I'm not ready to have my top retainer replaced, but you can bet that when I do, I'll be going there. I'm going to send her a thank you note -- that's not out of line, is it?

If I ever manage to get dressed, I'm going to run a few errands that have been hanging over my head. Weirdly, I'm kind of excited to get them all knocked out at once. By dinnertime, they will all be DONE and off my plate forever! WOOOOO. (My reward will be Which Wich.)

There's a situation happening where I literally feel like I am talking into a black hole and everyone involved is just ignoring me. I mean, like, literally no response, ever. I'm not sure how to handle it without being passive aggressive or just having a legit temper tantrum. Stressful.

This year I decided to set some goals for myself. Not resolutions, mind you, but goals. I'm focusing as much as possible on just being me and feel these things will help me kick that back on track.

  • Remind myself that I don't have to be anything at all except ME.
  • Say yes more often.
  • Spend the money.
  • Watch at least five movies in the theater.
  • Donate to a charity of my choosing, in someone else’s honor, once a month.
  • FaceTime with Addison and Drew.
  • Visit C and D.
  • Keep Max safe and as comfortable as possible.
  • Read at least two books of poetry.
  • Attend cons in Houston, Vegas, and Dallas.
  • Overtip everyone.
  • Let go, let go, let go.
  • Remember that Leaders Lunch Last.
  • Boost my immune system.
  • Collect -- and share -- as much awesome as possible.

    What do you think? I intend to share progress against my goals throughout the year, so...get ready!

    wings128 posted this and it's too good not to steal and share. LOVE IT.
