2010 recap (finally)

This is for me really.  It’s my way of keeping track of what, if anything, I accomplished this year.

This year started with a 21 day fast , go here for a summary of how that went.  Turns out that was a really good way to start a year out.    No doubt, I’ll be doing that again in 2011. (I’m actually 16 days into it right now!)

  • Sold fireworks for the 4th of July in Louisiana (great time with family and precious friends!)
  • went to the beach in Florida for a fantastic family vacation (paid cash)
  • paid off a car (that’s the last time we’ll ever NOT pay cash for a car–car pymts suck!)
  • my firstborn started driving–this is exciting, nerve-racking, and time-saving all at the same time
  • bought a car with cash for the first time ever (well, we matched Cory’s contribution and he bought a car with cash)
  • ran my first 5K.  and my 2nd. and my 3rd. and my 4th.  I’m officially addicted to running now.
  • started learning how to play the guitar–something I always wanted to do, and now I can 🙂
  • lost a beloved member of our family, Lucky dog
  • got 2 new puppies–it remains to be seen if this was a positive or negative move.  on the one hand, we’re missing Lucky less, on the other, training starts all over and lasts longer than I care to think about
  • started a new job–same place, new position

It was a busy and productive year and I’m already making goals for 2011.  Blogging more is one goal.  jeesh, last year was pitiful in the blogging department.  How else am I supposed to keep track of what I do?!?

Other goals:

Get my own guitar–Cory’s generously loaning me one of his right now

Learn how to make movies in iMovie–I’ve started this, but my first one was incredibly lame

My marriage is going to be the best it’s been in 20 years!
