Not too bad, right?

The first day of the resolutions was great. Got to work 32 minutes early. (I checked the clock as soon as I walked in the door.) I stayed late about 45 minutes, but it was for a meeting that was actually productive. Last night I even ate at home and hung out with an old friend. Oh, and I found a woman that would “like to see [my] dog” because she swears she is “trainable”. Overall, day one went well.

Day two? Not so much. Woke up at 7:28. Work starts at 8:00. Hmph. Luckily, I did not have to be there until 1, but I still wanted to get there early and get some stuff done. I did make it in by 8:40.

Tonight, I went out for dinner and spent too much money on a salad. I justify this by saying that it was with three girls that I used to teach. They are all in college now, and it was really nice to see that they have adjusted well and are still great kids. So that makes up for eating out, right?
To make up for the day of FAIL, I called Dad and set up a standing appointment with him for the next 6 weeks. And I am SO EXCITED! We will be building a Habitat for Humanity house together. I have always helped Dad with handy things around the house, so it will be so fun to work together to help someone else. I cannot wait!

So I guess the first few days of 2009 had some successes and some failures, but eh…it is a process.

RESOLUTIONS WERE MADE TO BE BROKEN--I'M PRETTY SURE! I'M STILL DOING OKAY, BUT I HAVEN'T SET THE BAR TOO HIGH! I SAW YOU ON SITS--HAPPY WEDNESDAY!

Just say Julie said...

The "date" with your dad sounds like it will be good for both of you. Today may be my running late day... slept an extra 15 minutes, but the bed was sooo warm :)

Stesha said...

That's great that you and your dad will build a house with habitat for humanity!

AmberP said...

I am SO terrible when it comes to resolutions so I think you are doing pretty darn good!!!!

Ms Cupcake said...

Dropping by from sits. Yay on your commitment to Habitat for Humanity. It was hard work but I loved it. It still gives me a warm and fuzzy when I drive by the house I worked on. A family is building a new life and memories in it.

The standing appt with your dad sounds like a blast. Even though you had one bad day looks like you are off to a great start!

The Muse said...

so...you are 50/50 ?

i'd say you are more on the winning side...especially with your Dad getting help for things around the house...that is great!

Hi there. Linked over from SITS and am so glad I stumbled upon you.

I suck at resolutions but really enjoy reading about others and how they're doing at keeping them.

I'm going to hang out for a while and read, if that's OK!

That's just how it is. It sounded successful to me though!

Tiffany said...

So cool that you and your Dad are going to work on a Habitat House.

Ms. Cupcake...I cannot leave comments on your page. And where did you get your dancing Obama?

Sorry, just now following you from your comment on my blog :0) Sounds like things are going well! On a side note, I used to be a teacher too--music and reading at the middle school level.
