so, i figured it was time to revisit my resolutions and see how i've been doing. because you care.
+ was doing lots of this until summer hit. and now? laziness has set in. and something is wrong with the temperture doohickie on my oven.
+ had this one nailed until i hurt my knee in early may. knee is now better, and i need to get back to it.
+ pretty good, still not as much as i would like. mostly a timing thing. i give myself a b-.
+ oh yeah. nailed this one. and loving every minute.
+ been doing pretty good with this one, too. i get a b here.
+ oof. never thought i would. some days it's still hard, but having someone who reminds me on a daily basis that not everyone sucks makes it hard not to. it's been pretty terrific.
+ ha! totally failed on this one. i should fix that. . .
+ see above. although i did go play last week. sad sad sad.
+ *smile*
+ eh. nope.
+ not yet. . . running out of time to do this before the weddings i will be attending in the fall.
+ it would appear that doing so would be nigh impossible. which, for those who know me and my severe lack of self confidence, is a pretty amazing thing for me to be able to say. i'm pretty darn happy about it.
