I am happy about the time I've spent with friends and family this past year. Time includes phone calls, and IM chats and blog conversations and WoW guildchat (*cough*nerd*cough*) hanging around in backyards or around tables or in the pool or in a tent in the middle of a field.
I am, as ever, awed at how much my son (and indeed my nieces and proto nieces and nephews) have grown this past year.
I am happy that I've made some new friends, reconnected with some old friends and reevaluated some long dead friendships. It's been comforting and liberating and pleasant and surprising.
I am amazed at some of the big decisions and actions my friends have made/done this year. Getting engaged, having babies, buying a house, renovating, moving country, moving states, starting new relationships, changing jobs. All these things are big leaps and I'm proud that you've done them.
I am happy with myself and that I've fixed some ways I deal with the world. Still not perfect and I still have the deeply manky hours/days/weeks but my coping mechanisms seem to be working a lot better than they were last year.
So, what happens next year?
I turn 32, Nw turns 40 and munchkin turns 4.I lose a smidge of weight.
I might even sew something other than some baby quilts and mending.
I continue spending time with and being amazed by, my friends and family.
I keep swimming laps while Torby has his swimming lessons.
I be better at calling people. I gave up on talking on the phone for any long period of time when i gave up smoking. they were just to connected. Lets see if I can manage it again.
I start working 3 days instead of 2. Oh the horror.
I somehow become even more t'riffic than I currently am. It will be a herculean effort!
I'm also toying with the idea of making sure I post something on my blog every day for a year. Might try it for January and see how it goes.
