Auld Lang Syne

Dear 2011,

No offense, but don’t let the door hit you in the tail on your way out at midnight.

It’s been a rough year for not only me, but a lot of my near and dears. We had deaths in the family, cancer scares, surgeries, job losses, too many court dates, loved ones moving away and people we thought loved us hurting us deeply.

But we also had a lot of good times.

Babies were born, career paths chosen, engagements announced, houses bought, weight lost, friends made and roller derby played.

We made the best of the crap hand you dealt us and we had a good time in spite of you, 2011.

So for 2012, here is what I am putting on my resolution list:

Save money (we have a large debt we need to pay down. LARGE.)

Build doula business (babies are awesome.)

Lose weight (I’m down 30 pounds from this time last year. I want to lose AT LEAST another 30 by bikini season! Not that I’ll be wearing a bikini….)

Skate hard (now that i am on a derby team, I have to bust my tail to keep up!)

Be a better person (our family wants to do some volunteering and random acts of kindness)

So 2011, suck it. We are not sorry to see you go.
