Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012!

Yes, I know it is January 17th, but considering that this is one of the first days that I have felt like an actual person since returning home, I am declaring this week the start of our new year!  So many people did such a great job wrapping up 2011 and give goals and resolutions for 2012 that it really made me think.

2011 brought so many changes...here are just a few...

I learned to live without...
a dishwasher
a garbage disposal
a microwave
a toaster
a separate washer and dryer
a car
a gym that opens at 5AM
my puppy
a job (kind of silly, but I'm still working on this one)

I learned...
how much I need my family
how much I value routine
to say goodbye (sort of...I'm really not good at this)
how to drive on the left side of the road
how to make new friends (again, this is a work in progress)
how much I loved our church
how to pack efficiently
how to travel with Parker on my own
how awesome the rail system is
how much I love spending my days with my little man

My 2012 resolutions...
Be a positive force every day for my family regardless of my mood
Continue to grow in my relationship with God
Run outside more (working out inside feels like work, boo)
Find a running club in Norwich
Find a women's bible study in Norwich
Thank my husband every day
Find a volunteer opportunity at a charity

Happy New Year!
