I haven’t done much of a what-the-heckamagooza I’m doing blog post lately, so here it is.
I ended 2008 not having met my absurdly lofty business goals for the year, on the other hand, I made about the same as in 2007 while spending more time on personal projects. I learned to build a website in drupal and theme a blog (this one) in wordpress, and learned a thing or two about joomla, but decided that my good friends over at SciMed Solutions are way better at that than I am. Launched a few sites using joomla, so yay for me (and Kevin and Steve).
A few decades and then some ago, I drove a friend to the hospital while she was in labor. In September, I went to her daughter’s wedding. That was pretty damn cool. Great wedding, too. It was also the butt-kicking I needed to get me back to San Francisco, if only for a short time. I should go again sometime. Soon.
But first I need to go to Manassas, Virginia to meet some of those mysterious Virginia cousins I alluded to in the “About Me” page. And while we’re there, we’re going to head over to D.C. to hang out with a couple of million other folks on the National Mall for a few hours for a Major Historical Event.
I have finished watching the entire seven seasons of Buffy, The Vampire Slayer.
I moved my business from the beautiful, historic, yet utterly annoying Snow Building into our home. I like working at home. I could get used to it. In fact, I am used to it. I’m also carving out a space for creative work…I’ve been drawing again (badly) and have pulled out all my boxes of beads. It feels very organic…my income-earning life and my creative life and my life life all sort of blending together.
I’ve watched my stepdaughters really blossom in the last year. One is in the Peace Corps in Honduras, the other in the North Carolina mountains, writing and playing music and living the life she loves on a farm. I’m pretty damn jealous of both of them, truth be known, because they look like they’re having a heckuva lot of fun.
But then again, so am I.
