Happy 2011

I believe I’ve actually gotten better looking since last year … like that’s such a shock.

Happy New Year and Happy Anniversary. I started this blog one year ago when I looked in the mirror and was amazed at how “beautiful” I looked. And I think I’ve done pretty good. I only missed 39 days and most of those were this fall when I was in a gigantic funk. But hey I’ve upped my meds and I’m feeling fine!

My new year started off strangely. First, I couldn’t sleep. Went to bed about midnight and I just laid there tossing and turning for hours. I finally got up and played on the computer for a while and went back to bed and continued tossing and turning. During the night I heard a lot of people outside having a party of sorts but the noise pretty much died down around 1 except for this one guy you’d hear every once in a while yelling — I think he was trying to get someone in the building to let him in. Well at around 4 I heard him yell something about a “dickweed” and then crash, I heard the glass for the building’s door breaking. I called 911 and then waited to hear someone in the hallway. When I didn’t I went out there and there was glass everywhere.

The most amazing part of the story is I actually went back to my unit, got a broom, and cleaned up the mess because I didn’t want any of the dogs in the building to get glass in their little paws when they got up this morning. Did you read that correctly? Yes! I cleaned. And I think I fell asleep around 6 and woke up at 8.

So my 2011 started with 2 hours of sleep, a “dickweed” attack, and cleaning. Wow — can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings.
