The Year Ahead

When I began posting here at 101 Dead Armadillos I did so because I wanted a place to put more in-depth articles and information than I had at any of my other sites. I also wanted to “start fresh” with more personalized posts intertwined with those in-depth articles.

So here we are on the first day of 2009. I may be mistaken, but 2008 seemed to fly by. It wasn’t the best of years, but it definitely wasn’t one of the worst either. I hope 2009 turns out to be a bit more stable than 2008.

The family.

  • My mom, who moved here in late 2007, survived her first full year here in Georgia without dying of boredom.
  • My sister survived her first full year in Kentucky, and I am proud of the way she has handled things. If anyone had it rough this past year, it was her, so I really hope things turn around for her in ’09.
  • My dad’s doing great out in Oregon, and hopes to come see the kids soon, which would be nice.
  • We lost our beloved dog Flash, but then Chuck came to live with us and heal our hearts.

The job.

  • I’ve been working on some very big projects that need to be done asap and the stress has been enormous.
  • The holidays came just in time, and gave me the mental break I desperately needed.
  • I’m hoping to get more freelance design and programming jobs on the side to supplement things so the budget isn’t stretched so thin.

The blogs.

  • I plan to keep blogging at most of the blogs I currently run.
  • I am thinking of bringing back my recipe blog.
  • I hope to do more in-depth posts here, as well as more personal posts.

I am not one to make New Year’s resolutions, but this year I do plan on…

  • getting more organized
  • losing 20 pounds
  • getting more exercise
  • eating better
  • pursue my photography/video interests

Here’s to a good 2009, I hope you had a great New Year’s holiday, and you have nothing but great things in front of you this year.
