Try this...

Say "Irish Wristwatch"

Just once.

Three times is freakin' impossible.

New Year's Resolutions

I like New Year's Resolutions.

Not only that, but I like creating themes for my resolutions.

In 2007 it was "Git 'er done!" and in 2008 it was "Use it or lose it!" (and addendum). I like blogging about them too because I can look back and both remind myself what the heck I wanted to accomplish and also see what I have accomplished. Looking back right now, I completed 5 of the 9 things in 2007. As for 2008, well, I did manage to get a massage every 6 to 8 weeks. That's gotta count for something!

This year's theme is...

2009: Sassy's Time to Shine!

It rhymes! And it's all about me! Whoo hoo!

Here, in no particular order, are the things I would like to accomplish in the next 12 months.
  1. Start a storefront at Etsy.com
  2. Figure out how to create and write an eBook. I've got a couple ideas rattling around in my head. Something about fitness or organizing. It's TBD, I've got 12 months to figure it out. The hard part is figuring out how to do it.
  3. Write an article for the personal training industry website I have to read an article from (and take a quiz on) every month.
  4. Start an IRA. Ok, so this has technically already been done but the first withdrawal doesn't happen until January 12th so I'm counting it.
  5. Go to Australia and New Zealand! I have tentative plans to travel there in August.
There you have it - one down, four to go!

What are you doing in 2009?

My own personal chick flick

Sassy Pants to Friendster Guy: "If you need me I'll be upstairs."

FG: "OK"

5 minutes pass...

FG tromps up the stairs and into the office and says, "I need you."

Sassy: "You do?"

FG: "Yup." He then gives Sassy Pants a big hug and kiss and tromps back down the stairs.


That man's a freakin' keeper.

Putting my money where my mouth is.

As I mentioned a few posts ago, I am disturbed by all the commercialism that is the holiday season.

Since I vowed to abide by at least 6 of the 7 virtues (chastity, temperance, charity, diligence, patience, kindness, and humility) I had better get cracking.

For my first act I will be investing in humanity, not Wall Street, by donating to Kiva.org (see the ad in my side bar). Essentially, you loan $25 or more to an individual or organization to start or grow a business. Once that loan is repaid you can reinvest the money in someone else. It's the gift of giving that keeps on giving!

I also plan to give a $25 gift certificate to my 6 year old niece for Christmas and help her choose someone to help. She can follow their story via journal entries and track their progress. How cool is that?

Bravo!

Hilarious! Star Studded! And right on the money. You go Hollywood stars!
