me, only better.

So blogger has been giving me problems? Anyone else. I wrote an entry on Tuesday, went to publish and just got errors. Tried to hit the back button to at least save what I had done... no such luck, more errors! Frustrating! So... I switched. I'm now in new blogger format and hopefully with not have anymore problems! We'll see.
But at least now I get tags! and my buttons (on dashboard) look all flat and boring! Lol, not that something so silly matters, but I liked the old "push" buttons.
*desperately clings to old ways... beats at change with stick*

So, what did I write... well, first off... Happy 500 to me!!! I've actually done 502 entries now (including this one), but completely forgot to mention that I had hit that beautifully round number, and thought it was deserving of its own paragraph. Oh, and in November of this year I'll have been blogging for 5 years. Yipes. But we'll talk about that when it comes... so for now, Happy 500 to me!

Let's see... I also did a quick meme, which I got from Mainline Mom. It's pretty interesting and a great looking back type... which fits nicely with my starting 2007 over thing! :-)

1. What did you do in 2006 that you had never done before?
Got married!

2. Did you keep your new years resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I don't really remember making one last year... but I did discuss the one for this year already. And it is actually going pretty well so far.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Yes! Jen had her beautiful baby boy!

4. Did anyone close to you die?
No, we were lucky this year.

5. What countries did you visit?
None... boo! But this year, Ireland!

6. What would you like to have in 2007 that you lacked in 2006?
A less cluttered and more "us" house. A trip to Ireland.

7. What dates from 2006 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
Take a wild guess! Lol. 10/13/06, our wedding.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Hmm... what do I consider an achievement? I've had plenty of good things happen this year, and plenty of fun, lots of little things that I considered accomplishments... but a big achievement? Maybe just pulling off the wedding, and having it be as great a day as it was!

9. What was your biggest failure?
Besides the slow slide of our house into disarray... probably the loss of that friend, which I didn't talk about until just last week, but which started last year.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
Hmm... nope, I think we lucked out there too. Just the "little" illnesses, like the Christmas case.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
Probably anything wedding related. :-) I swear, not a cop out... I can't help it that the wedding just happened to be the biggest event of my year.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?
Hmm, is this like who gets a gold star? Most of my family, all of my "thick and thin" friends, and definitely my husband.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
I would say the person who pulled apart that friend and I... but that more made me sad then appalled.

14. Where did most of your money go?
House and wedding.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Lol, one guess! Actually there were a few things that got me really excited this year... our wedding was the biggest, but also 3 friend's weddings, four pregnancy announcements (though 2 more then the other 2), and some new engagements.

16. What song will always remind you of 2006?
"You're My Best Friend" by Queen.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you: a) happier or sadder? b) thinner or fatter? c) richer or poorer?
a) Maybe a little happier, in general life is very good.

b) Hmm... after these holidays, probably a little fatter... but mostly about the same.

c) Really not sure about this one... we did pay for that wedding, but we've been great at saving!

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?
Let things I can't control get me down.

20. How did you spend Christmas?
With my wonderful family... but sick, ugh!

21. Did you fall in love in 2006?
I fell more in love... if that counts.

Hm, 22 is missing.

23. What was your favorite TV program?
House, CSI, NCIS, and Rachael Ray.

24. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
Hate is a waste of time.

25. What was the best book you read?
Hmm... I read a lot of good books, many that I can't remember the names of offhand... but probably The Davinci Code.

26. What was your greatest musical discovery?
Don't know that I discovered that much musically this year, although I do love that song by Ok Go.

27. What did you want and get?
Hmm, mostly all wedding things... and lots from our registry.

28. What did you want and not get?
A new tattoo.

29. What was your favorite film this year?
I honestly don't even remember the last time we went to the theater to see a movie. But we bought a bunch... Click was great and so were the X-men movies. I'm dying to see Children of Man though!

30. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
I was 24, and I don't remember doing much except for working and probably a nice dinner from my hubby. My celebration had been earlier that month when we went to Jimmy Buffett.

31. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Not too much except for maybe getting more house stuff done.

32. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2006?
Business comfortable. :-)

32. What kept you sane?
My husband, family, friends... I'm a lucky girl.

34. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
You know I love me some Angie.

35. What political issue stirred you the most?
The war.

36. Who did you miss?

37. Who was the best new person you met?
Travis' uncle Bob is great, and Tyler, my train buddy.

38. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2006.
That sometimes you have to relax and let life take you where it will... to can't control everything and sometimes it's best to know when to let go.

Oh, and I never talked about Ballys.
Well, I signed up for the Discovery Health Challenge. You get 8 free weeks at Ballys, and I figured why not? It would be great to drop a few inches off my lower half, and maybe lose 5 lbs. It doesn't start until the 13th, but I went in on Monday night to get an orientation type thing. It was interesting to say the least. The manager was basically giving me the hard sell, and trying to tell me that if I didn't sign up for a membership that I wasn't serious and I wouldn't get any results in 8 weeks anyway. Talk about an all or nothing approach! It was a little pushy for my tastes, and the gym itself while nice, wasn't really my kind of atmosphere. So at $60 a month (with a 36 month contract), I say no thanks!! I'll probably still use my 8 weeks, but after that there is no way I'm signing up. I'll either use the free (infinitely smaller) gym in the basement of my work building, or start walking most days as it will probably be warm enough at that point.

Now... well today is really busy, I have so many email to take care of and we are prepping for a big Quarterly mailing that involves work from pretty much the whole office. Fun.

Wish me luck!
