a good day

Today was a good day -

It started out well, it ran well, and it's ended well (please tell me I'm not jinxing myself by putting that in writing!).

Never had the feeling, "It's what time already?"
Woke up to an order (yay - a tiny bit of money! - I'll take it, I'll take it!)
Actually wasn't tired when I woke up, which is a lovely change of pace... (Me? I slept well? Such a rare occurrence...).
Cooked dinner, cleaned up the kitchen after (don't laugh! Those are accomplishments!!!).

Best of all, videotaped my daughter's audition tape for Holiday on Ice - she skated beautifully, I taped well, we had a good day at the same time - it's a nice feeling. I'm very proud of her and how she's pursuing the next phase of her life, which not coincidentally means I'll have my house back to myself (and hubby) at some foreseeable point in the future!

redos (redoes, redo’s)(I’ve found support for all three spellings!)

Can I start the year over again? Please? I'm not sure I even remember January, and February had so many things wrong in it (major health issue for a family member, food poisoning [did that one to myself – can't blame it on anyone else's kitchen, lol], did a good job on my back [couldn't drive for over a week, couldn't do much but lay in bed for a few days…], and I'm sure there's a few things I'm forgetting ;-)… And I'm also sure you're getting the picture by now….

Okay, so there's been a little blip at the beginning of March, but since it's related to February – I'm ignoring it. So here's my pronouncement: March is the new January. Hmm – good thing I didn't make any resolutions back then, hnhh?

My New Year Resolutions:

Finish the redesign of my website, turning it into a fully functioning ecommerce site. (I'm getting closer, making all the product pages takes time!)

Finish the redesign of the Pennies in Action website, so when we get our official 501(c)(3) status, I'll launch the tweaked version of that.

Keep up with things (okay, that's probably pushing it…)

Stop coming up with new designs, and actually execute the one's I've already dreamed up!

Stop sitting around on my butt? (okay, that one's probably not going to happen either…)

And hmmmm – maybe blog a little more regularly?

So – here's to starting the year over again. Anybody else game?
