2007 is over, thank GOD. All right, people, it's time to vent your frustrations. On the way into work: Crap, I forgot to take my meds! Work is the crazies. So, as many of you know, Eric's grandfather passed away on Sunday. So, I got fed up with the living room, and decided that I needed to take care of things. In random bullet-point form! Many thanks to all of your for your well-wishes and suggestions. I've been having major issues with my current job - not just my current position (though that's not helping), but with my company as a whole. I'm finding myself distressingly anti-social today. Yes, I know today is Election Day, and YES, I voted. So, Eric and I live in an apartment, in a complex filled with little four-apartment buildings.
As for next year?

I'm putting a lot of pressure on 2009, I realize. I guess it just seems like I didn't really do much in 2008, and I've got some ground to make up. I know it's not a race, but I can't help but feel horribly behind. It just seems like I should be more of an adult than I am by now, and I'm hoping to change that.
