Well my dear friends, 2012 is coming to a close in a few short weeks.
Christmas is only 6 days away, and even though I'm going to be traveling a lot until New Years, I'm taking some time now to reflect on the past year.
The first half was rough, while Mark was gone. Hated hated hated the first part of the year. Looking back, though, it could have been a lot worse. I'm very blessed that he came home safely, and that I had such supportive family and friends during his deployment.
The last half just dragged on, one tough thing after another. This last month has been better than probably the entire year, but my goodness, I'm grateful the year is almost over!
I'm not sure what our plans our to ring in the new year, we'll be spending it with his dad and stepmom, so we will either go out or stay in, but I will be very happy when it's 2013! Like I said in my last post, there's so much to look forward to! I've already written down my resolutions (though I'll probably be adding more!), and they're going to get stuck on the fridge when I leave work tonight so I will see them and remember them every day.
I will be taking my size measurements on New Year's Day so I can accurately track the start of my weight loss journey. Mark will be starting insanity with me, and I will be taking several classes at the gym we're joining as we'll, so hopefully with a few lifestyle changes, we'll be on the right track!
I also will have a VERY exciting announcement to come after the start of the year. It's something I've been looking forward to sharing but haven't been able to, so once everything is ironed out, you all will be the first to know!
I'll post once we get to my parents, then again in Maryland!
P.S. I'm not sure if I ever showed a picture of the new car, but I've had some emails about it, so here it is!
