I'm usually really excited for a new year. But this one . . . not so much. Maybe it's because I didn't accomplish most of my 2009 goals. Or maybe it's that sweet little notice I received, the one informing me that I will be observed by a master educator on my first day back at work. THANKS DCPS, you're sweet as always.

Maybe it's that I know I'm getting older, really just old.

Maybe it's that I have no idea what the later half of 2010 has in store for us.

Maybe it's that I can't get over writing 2009.

And is it two-thousand-ten or twenty-ten?

Ugh, whatever it is, I'm just getting more and more bummed out as I think about what it might be.

Hello Little Ms. Negativity,

Getting older is great!!! It so beats the alternative you know! Remember that!

How nice to know you will be observed the first of the year. It will be done with and over in no time at all and then you can enjoy the next 5 months.

As for goal setting... perhaps you are setting the wrong type of goals. Set a goal to not be disappointed with your growth however small it may be. Set a goal to be gentle with yourself. Set a goal to see the good in yourself. Set a goal to say thank you to DCPS for a job. Set a goal to celebrate your life on November 9th 2010. Set a goal to recognize the blessings in your life. Especially the blessing of having Scott and Claudia for parents! We love you!!! Pollyanna

The radio said that after some research, it is correctly called 2010.
