New Year New Responsibilities
The new year brings many new responsibilities to my life, not to mention the never-ending battle against the snow (which takes me anywhere from an hour to two hours each time it snows to dig out our sidewalk and driveway). Anyway, this week I begin teaching yoga at UVU and also start fulfilling my responsibilities as Assistant Stake Sports Director, which means basketball season.
Yesterday, I found out that I apparently never officially changed my name with the government, even though I did with the banks, church, dmv, and even my passport, so I spent most of the afternoon at the social security office, driving back home through the snow because I forgot my marriage certificate, and trying to get back to the office before they closed at 4:00 pm in the snow. I made it at 3:55. Whew! I managed to make it back to UVU before 5:00 to prove to them I updated my social security card. Now I have to wait to be updated in their system so I can get an id card and a parking permit, and be able to put my syllabus on blackboard as I prepare for the semester.
Oh, 2009...it should be an interesting one. For as messed up as 2008 became, I still really enjoyed it. So, there are some financial struggles globally and personally, I know it will eventually get better. Patience is needed.
So, Happy New Year all! I hope you make it the best year yet! :) We have so much to be grateful for.
P.S. Who's excited for the new Biggest Loser tonight? :) I already know Hylan is going to be like, again? Already?
And what a great job Utah in the Sugar Bowl--way to bust the BCS! And who can forget my beloved Eagles? What a great game coming up against the Giants. Eeek, I'm on the edge of my couch waiting in anticipation!
