Maybe it's much too early in the game...

In response to ProBlogger's Review/Preview challenge, I thought I'd do a little review of my year.

So, here it is: the Hits and Misses of 2006

Hit NaBloPoMo: Requiring more of myself & signing up to post every single day have been really great for me, I think. Not only have more people stopped by to read, but it gives me a great sense of accomplishment to know that I can set & reach this kind of a goal. (Today is day 50, btw.)

-----


Miss Splashing the teeny-tiniest amount of water on my laptop.

-----

Hit - Lyrica. This new pill has helped keep my base pain level at it's barely tolerable level (8 out of 10, most days). The fact that I am grateful for an 8/10 is, in itself, quite sad, however the 'keeping things from getting worse' properties of a pill cannot be overlooked in this circumstance.

Miss twelve other drug combinations I've tried this year. 12. I start a new drug tomorrow, though, so we'll all hope it goes in the hit column.

-----

Hit Adding Baby Girl to our family!

-----

Miss - The cancellation of The West Wing

Hit - Studio 60

-----

Hit The Saturday Scavenger Photo Hunt - Again, a reachable goal & new visitors added this to the plus column this year. What put it over the top is that it encouraged me to learn more about/play with my digital camera and photo editing software. Something I enjoy, now that I (mostly) know what the hell I am doing.

-----

Miss Painters Tape - which has failed me to impress me with it's abilities to make Christmas Cards stick to the door or photographs stay straight in their frames.

-----

Miss My stupid, oversensitive nose. And Tar, in all of it's various forms.


------
Hit November & its Democratic Sweep.

Miss No impeachment.

------

Miss OnlyBrother & S-T-B SIL moving twice in one year. Particularly since they moved farther away and took YoungestNephew and BabyGirl with them. Not happy about this. Very bad decision on their parts (which they are now regretting, but what good does that do any of us?)

-----

Hit Books. Ah, Books.
(Enough so that I'm planning a whole 2006-book post!)
-----


----

Hit Candy Cane Kisses. Seriously, people: must stock up in the event that January actually comes and the store doesn't sell them anymore. Physical harm might occur to any salesperson telling me they are out, otherwise.

-----

Miss Still not standing up for myself when I should.

----

Hit The Daily Show/Colbert Nation dyad.

-----

Miss Biopsies - 'nuf said.

-----

Hit Getting along with most of my family, most of the time

-----

Hit Having lots of new internet-y friends to wish a 'Happy Holiday' to.

That's you, in case you wondered.
