I took a peep back at what I was doing ’round about this time last year and I was hazing a sad about “those shoes” and how Duty will never get me. But you know what? *I* get me. (I should! After all, I AM me! heh) And I think that’s the important thing.
Also too: he gets me in ways I don’t even realize.
So, there ya go.
” … but if ya try sometimes, you get what ya need”
Bought myself those shoes, wore them once to work and did, in fact, put them in the closet. But now that I’ve lost a few pounds, I almost (ALMOST) feel worthy of them. This whole year has been all about getting back down into my body. And loving it. From Pilates to Paleo, I did good. I’ll do even better, better, better in 2012 because I see how getting down into the physical helps me when I’m working in the non-physical. Woo-Hoo!
Christmas spirit was slow in coming this year but the lack of a certain broker and his butt-boy helped bring about just the right mood. I will be counting down the days when I can give all that to someone else and resume my peaceful(ish) life there. New office, new space … just a different energy. And soon after, we hope, I’ll be leaving there for good.
Tomorrow will be fun-filled with family visits and food and kids. I’m totes down with that.
To all (three) of you still reading, I wish you a very merry Christmas!
Re: My Christmas post —
Snarkela, I’m sorry. I didn’t forget you. I deleted you. (That doesn’t sound any better, does it.) I could not get the spacing between the prose and the links right, and in my constant fiddling with it, you disappeared. I am so sorry.
You done good this year! Glad to see you’re enjoying it. And you’ve hit on why I value my blog — it’s the most honest snapshot of who I am at any given moment, and sometimes it’s helpful to look back. I think blog readership is down because of Facebook. It’s a quicker way for us to catch up with one another in small, digestible bites. But while I can’t speak for you, I know I am not my true self on FB. I still blogger is the place to go to find out what’s up in Snarkela’s heart.
