I love those recap of the year segments on TV. The ones that make you remember all the things that have occured during the past year. I wish my life could be one of those recap programs. It would show-
-living at Seminary
-making my New Years Resolution to not buy any clothes for the girls for a whole year
-working at Lindeys Steak House
-freaking out about not knowing where we will live and if/what job Jared will get when he graduated
-hanging out in the hallway with seminary friends
-hearing about and visiting Cook, MN for the first time
-falling in love with and getting the job!
-Sophi learns to walk
-graduating from Seminary, whew
-hanging out in WI and CO for a chunk of summer
-Moving to Cook
-make lots of clothes for the girls
-Making new friends and finding our way in a new community, while still missing old friends
-lots of house guests
-Spending Thanksgiving and Christmas in our gorgeous (but temporary) lake home
-COMPLETING MY RESOLUTION TO NOT BUY CLOTHES FOR A WHOLE YEAR!
I actually did it! I did not buy clothes for my two precious peanuts for a whole year! Although I do not plan on making this a two year resolution, I learned a great deal from this challenge.
What are your plans for the New Year?
It is so fun to be able to start fresh with a New Year, isn’t it?
Hope you all have some fun plans for tonight and are ready to welcome 2012.
Last but not least- some wisdom from good ol’ Calvin and Hobbes:
