Not a good sign, even before coffee, I dropped meds meant for Gus (65lbs), Honey ate, call 24 hour vet, try to get Honey to vomit, call vet again, 45 minutes later they give me # for animal poison control who tell me not to worry. No coffee, tears of frustration and incompetance all before 7am.
I started searching Horoscope sites for one I liked. Didn't happen. I hope the day doesn't throw more at me.

Since we last visited, I have registered for my classes at the community college, I have finished my second round of antibiotics, I was a guest at The Coon Club, owned by The United Coon Hunters Association, attended the birthday party for WTMD with guests Eva Castillo, Tift Merritt, and Ryan Shaw (a great event), cleaned my studio, taught 4 classes, approximately 60 adults each on strength training (This was an event for the local school system and I taught with a friend), met a friend in Dagsboro who actually lived here in my town and our children went to school together and we never crossed paths, bought two sexy bras with the aid of my girls, had dinner at Emma's, taught a Mommy and Me Boot camp, took many naps and am currently struggling to find something my hands will be happy doing.

For some reason, I found 2007, or my 44th year a bit difficult. Little inspiration or motivation, primarily just going through the motions. Already I'm feeling the push forward, the little snippets of inspiration, the wonder for this coming year. Here are 45 things I would like to do before my 45th birthday:
- Schedule regular massages
- Lose 10 pounds
- Buy 3 bras at Victorias Secret that really fit me and make me feel sexy
- Buy 3 sports bras that really fit me and make me feel sporty
- Plan and host a Creative Women's Retreat
- Finish these projects: my knitted/felted duffle bag
- Audrey's cotton crazy quilt
- Start a sweater for myself
- Get my family involved in a service project- make a quilt for Project Linus together, deliver presents for Santa Anonymous, work in a food pantry once a month/quarter or something
- Step down from my position as Youth leader
- Project 365
- Open a bigger Flickr account
- Visit the American Visionary Arts Museum
- Publish my last two years of blogging with blurb
- Get my CEC's for my Group Fitness certification
- Shampoo my carpets
- Totally clean my basement
- Finish the bathroom on Deep Run
- Do the bathroom in Dagsboro
- Organize my recipes
- Organize my fitness papers
- Make a book of photos from Italy
- Make time for friends more often
- Go to Jazz Fest (okay, I'm cheating a bit as My Handsome Prince gave me airline tickets and hotel reservations for my birthday)
- Enroll in a yoga class
- Enroll in the community college (no I have not done that yet)
- Open an Etsy shop or sell in the local market in DE
- Encourage the YMCA to recycle water bottles
- Buy a few pairs of pants/jeans. I'm tired of wearing hand me downs from teenagers
- Join/Start a book club
- See Ozomatli
- See Anders Osborne
- See The Wood Brothers
- Use a heartrate monitor
- Introduce the idea to the Y about a service/work trip
- Bake bread
- Sew clothes
- Explore the eastern shore
- A physical challenge - maybe this year will be the Seagull Century
I'm sure that some things will just not be for me and others will take its place. The point is to step outside that comfort zone, do something that, as my sister says "Rocks your world" or someone elses. We'll see what my 45th year brings.
I must say, it was a bit odd to have my early January birthday and be outside without a coat, going for a walk in 60 degree weather. More than once, I've shovelled snow.

We walked on the beach
Really liked the idea of turning the living room into a dance area, complete with disco ball.
Entertained our first guests very simply
Marvelled at tiny puppy prints in the sand
And got totally devastated by the loss of The Blue Surf Motel to put up condominiums and shops. I always wanted to stay there but it was never necessary and now I never will. So, don't wait to do something or you may never get to do it.
We were welcomed the first night by a friend from the Y and her husband, who own a place in Fenwick Island. They treated us to dinner and spent the evening giving us scoop on 1/2 price dinner places, fresh produce, shortcuts and more. I'll have to ask again, as after a bit, my eyes glazed over with the wealth of information.
It was a totally delightful, relaxing, renewing time. It spoke of the change we are entering in our lives.
