I've spent the last few days in and out of the hospital. I'm not ready to talk about it yet but I'm fine. It was a weird end to the year except for this little nugget that I learned - when I needed him, he was all there. People use their blogs for all sorts of things and so much of the time its like some weird cyber-trophy place where everyone can brag about life and their kids and whatever else. I'm not here to do that (but maybe I will when I have more to brag about?!) I do want to say, however, that my husband has been absolutely incredible to me and I don't know if I could have made it through these last few heart-wrenching days of the year, let alone the rest of the year, without him. I feel like he wrapped me in this giant, comfortable cocoon of love and it saved me from all of the pain I could've felt. I just truly love that man. SO I'm not much for looking back. Its always 'onward and upward' with me, so let me just say that 2010 was a mostly great year. Work was good. School was challenging. Europe was fabulous. Spring, Summer, Fall were eventful and lovely. Church was busy. But most importantly, I think I've improved ever so slightly from this time last year. That's always the ultimate goal. Get better every year. AND 2011 has a lot to offer. As you probably know I'm a goal junkie. Doug and I wrote down our goals last night and we have a combined total of about 60 goals. :) We separate them out into categories (when I say 'we' I mean "I" make the categories and I make Doug write them down). We have financial goals, spiritual goals, personal, physical, house project goals, etc. They are well thought out and very specific. I don't make goals for goal's sake. I don't write down things that I know will be easily crossed off (those are to-do lists and those are different). So here are some that I can remember - 1. Graduate in May with honors 2. learn how to use my sewing machine over the summer 3. get certified to train CC1 program at my work 4. sell green car/ buy new car 5. buy beginners Chinese language program 6. begin process for 2nd cd
There are many more obviously. We have around 15 - 20 house project goals. We have a bunch of spiritual goals like "read scriptures together as a couple on Sunday mornings". We are aiming to do another Europe trip (shorter one though - 2 weeks) as well as a trip to the east coast in the fall, driving the Appalachian Trail. So yeah, 2011 should be pretty fabulous. First up, though, is graduation. 123 days and counting.
