i don’t think i’m alone when i say that i’m more than happy to say farewell to 2010. the year has had it’s shares of ups and downs.
two thousand ten:
i lost fifty five pounds in twelve months.
i went back to school in spring, though i had to drop out in fall (i will be returning this coming spring).
i’ve managed to find a new psychiatrist and general practitioner.
shawn and i split up (but there is a glimmer of hope that we will get back together).
rogue ran away a couple of days ago (please keep her in your thoughts).
i lost one home but gained another.
i learned to eat healthier.
i returned to church with arms wide open.
i gave up beading and scrapbooking, but i took up embroidery.
i read 19 books.
i’ve managed to organize my internet and my home. i’m feeling a little more at peace with this new found space.
i got one new tattoo that makes me smile every time i see it.
i learned how to reconfigure my computer after it crashed.
i knit one sweater. (not quite my goal, but next year i expect i’ll have more time to knit.)
i’ve given up on swaps.
my little boy turned twelve, my little girl turned four and i turned thirty.
i watched every episode of “survivor” and was so happy with this years winner. go fabio!
i reconnected with old high school friends on facebook.
i stuck with going to the gym.
i got a car (a week ago).
i started my first sweater for two thousand eleven (it’s hannah fetting’s effortless cardigan using madelinetosh dk in stovepipe).
and i’ve gained a new friend.
(her name is astrid. she’s a four year old lynx point siamese cat that i rescued from the animal shelter. she’s feisty but a lover. she likes to clean her litter box and hide under blankets. she’s also been known to play with yarn.)
