And I turned 31, too. I like the 30’s. I think they’re rather fun. Why does everyone dread turning 30?
So, it’s New Year’s Eve. Josh, of course, is at work, and I am sitting here alone in a quiet house. Again. I calculate that this year I have spent approximately 210 nights alone. I think I am going to resolve to spend a lot less time alone in 2007. I’m already working on that.
I also resolve to play a lot more music. I’m already working on that one, too, which makes me happy happy.
What else? Let’s see… I would very much like to say that I will absolutely stop letting people take advantage of me or get away with treating me badly, but let’s face it, that’s probably not likely to happen. I allowed it to happen this year didn’t I? Maybe that’s the one I should focus on…
I’m not going to spend my time reviewing the year. It’s pointless. A lot of stuff happened. Some very good things happened. A lot of bad things happened. I have been spending far too much of my time dwelling on the bad stuff, wondering what I could have done to avoid it. It doesn’t matter. What’s done is done, for better or worse. I need to move on. Instead, let’s take a look ahead for 2007-
Josh will start his student teaching in January. This also means that he will be quitting his job. It will be wonderful to have him at home at night again :)
We’ve got a few more swim meets coming up as well which means more chances for Bailey to nail that 100 IM!
There will also be the big job hunt. That means that preparing to move, probably even out of state, is in our very near future. It is more than a little stressful that we know that we will be moving, but have NO idea where we will be moving to. It will be ok, right? Float, just float…
Bailey will turn 7 this April and Erin will turn 4 in May. Too big. Just too big. But sooooo much fun!!!! :)
In March, Josh and I will celebrate our 13th anniversary. Pretty cool. Of course, mid January is the 17th anniversary of when Josh and I started dating. And yes, if you do the math, that means I was a mere 14 years old. Do I really think Bailey will be ready to make a decision about who she is going to spend the rest of her life with in just 7 more years??? Scary, huh?
Who knows what else 2007 has in store for us. It’s going to be a big year full of big change, I think.
This Christmas was wonderful. The best Christmas ever, maybe. Technology galore!
