Suck it, 2007!

I'm really happy to see the end of 2007, which has largely been a pain in my tokhes. But, I'm trying out this new things where I try to focus on the good things in my life rather than all the lame things. But I swear to god, if I don't find gainful employment in 2008, I'm going to go seriously ballistic. Speaking of, head over to Top Five to list your favorite memories of the year...

The year's going out with a bang, with one nasty stomach flu that traveled from my sister and bro-in-law, to me, and then to my husband, who's spent the last few days refusing to take any medicine (as is his way) and occasionally refusing to put on pants. It's just like 2007 to sock me and everyone I know with a massive intestinal shock in the last week. But, listen, I'm focusing on the trips to the hospital that I didn't take.

I'm not one for resolutions (anymore) - I figure, it's unlikely I'm going to keep them, so why set myself up for failure? But, I do like to consider some loose goals at the end of the year, which I might focus on in at least January. They are (the usual):

1. To get in better shape.
2. To take the good with the bad (part of new mentality)
3. To find gainful employment (will at least teach a course at Loyola)
4. Look into selling some of my crafts
5. Continue working on my book(s)

Hope the next year treats you all better - have fun and be safe tonight!

Great loose goals. For #4 you might look into It is an online market place where you can set up an online store and sell your crafts. Good luck as we head into 2008. Everything will be great in 2008 (Can you tell one of my goals is to be more optimistic, but I doubt it works!) :)
