7 Things That Happened in 2007

Stealing my own meme from last year, but it seems a worthwhile endeavor.

1. Started a novel. It began as a reckless foray into National Novel Writing Month, totally consuming my life for three weeks, and now remains a nagging project I'd like to finish. Two weeks away from my family next month might be just the push I need to get it done.

2. Preached a full sermon. I'd spoken in church several times before, but this was the first time I was the lone speaker. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. But that doesn't mean I have any plans to become a minister. I'm way too awkward visiting the sick.

3. Got a well-deserved promotion. After the bitter disappointment of being the second-place contestant last year, I laid low and decided to stay in my current department. I had faith in a couple of very trustworthy and loyal colleagues, and it worked in my favor. (Plus, just to make me feel better, the person who got the other job looks just plain miserable every time I see her. Another trusted colleague assures me that I would have hated it and would probably have thrown in the towel by now.)

4. Refinanced my mortgage. Too many scary stories of adjustable rate mortgages ending in foreclosures led me to the loan officer's office for a fixed rate mortgage. Peace of mind? Priceless.

5. Looked long and hard at my priorities and made some changes. I sleep better at night.

6. Met some bloggy friends in real life. Which was just as awesome as it sounds.

7. Drove 850 miles in one day, by myself. It was hard.

Hey, you had an awesome year. I wonder what's going to be on the list for next year. Whatever it is, it will be great.
