I finally made the men's room wall. I always have been a late bloomer!
Thanks to Maureen for showing it to me (why she was in the men's room is a whole 'nother story). Now, if only we knew who "KG" was - Kute Guy?, Kenny G?, Karmann Ghia?, Kilo Gram?
But back to the wrap-up.
I really expected for my life to slow down this month. I pictured that my house would be sparking clean, my desk at work would be clear and I'd sleep so much that my face would have permanent pillow marks.
No, no and no.
Those pipe dreams aside, it was a good month.
Meeting Robert Egger and reading his book, Begging for Change has really made me re-think how not for profit agencies do business. Its a good feeling, but slightly overwhelming.
I wound up writing parts of a cover story for NUVO.
MLK Day at the farm was a blast as usual, but I think I'm still recovering. Sprinkled in with all of the fun is a big work day. I was at the farm from 9:00 am until midnight - lots of cooking and cleaning and keeping people from falling in to the fryers.
I booked a trip to Ireland (woo hoo!).
Apparently it is okay with you dear readers, to date men that are younger than my television.
Stuff I didn't blog about:
Crabbiness. I was crabby for a good chunk of the month. I'd wake myself up because I was scowling in my sleep.
The computer ate my column. I e-mailed my 1200 word Broad Ripple Gazette column to the editor before the deadline. The first time since, well, the first time ever. I titled the subject line "don't faint." Well, faint we almost did. Only one paragraph of the column transmitted. I went to work last Sunday and tried to retrieve it. No luck. I spent the afternoon alternating between re-writing the column, stamping my little feet and crying. That was also the first and only day in January that I was not scheduled to work any of my three jobs. And, of course I remember that first version as being the best thing I've ever written.
I make a real point not to blog about work. It was a challenging month. That's all I'm saying.
Overall, the good outweighed the bad. The month was a great kick-off to 2008.
I'm looking forward to seeing what the year brings.
