Ah, a new year and even a new decade. Time to list my New Year’s Resolutions. I’m terrible at follow-through, but maybe you all can help me. I suspect that, even though I’ve wished for calm, 2010 will be a year with some upheaval and change for me.
Wine: I’d like to either get my CWE (Certified Wine Educator) or Level 1 Sommelier this year, and I’d like to get certified in Mixology / Craft Cocktails. I know, I seem to be working on some weird career trajectory towards bartender, but I hope I can somehow become a trainer in the adult beverage industry someday like I am in the technology field. We’ll see.
Real Life: I’d also like to change my day job. It’s time to find a “real job,” as I call it, and stop working at home in my pajamas. Ideally the perfect job is in marketing and social media or training and social media. You get the gist. Cross your fingers for me. That job hunt will probably start in March, if not sooner.
Thank you so much for reading and sticking with me. I love my readers and I hope you all know that. My thanks and best wishes for a safe and wonderful 2010!

We'll be back as soon as I can taste wine again.
My husband, occasional blog contributor, beer-guy, and wine-event companion (he likes to joke that he is arm candy) is 30-something today.
Happy birthday Kevin!
Forgive our extended lull. Not only am I having some trouble with the host of my blog, I'm also having more localized trouble. I installed Snow Leopard on my Mac last week and, as I saw someone state on Twitter, a real snow leopard would have caused less damage to my computer.
I'm in the midst of downgrading my operating system back to regular Leopard, fighting with my email and calendar programs (that no longer seem to work), finding my various contacts, appointments, emails, etc …
