2011 Almost Over :O

I stole this from Zoot, who stole it from someone else. We’re just a big bunch of thieves in the blogging world (and I mean that with a sense of humor, not as an actual statement).

  1. What did you do in 2011 that you’d never done before?
    I became part of the Girl Scouts. Like full on part of. I’m officially a leader, and I’m planning on continuing :O
  2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
    Not really, no. I don’t think I did.
  3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
    My best friend Julie, December 15, to little Miss Abigail.
  4. Did anyone close to you die?
    My FIL had to put down Molly, but I’m not sure if that counts.
  5. What countries did you visit?
    I barely left the county let alone the country.
  6. What would you like to have in 2012 that you lacked in 2011?
    More self-confidence, I think.
  7. Continue reading


Out With the Old …

You are a Gem – January by Marie H Designs

I plan on getting a new laptop in 2012. The current laptop, we got it in 2008. So, four years. It’s still running amazing, I’m just needing an upgrade. Windows 32-bit is just not cutting it. 250 gig hard drive doesn’t quite make out. Two gigs of RAM is killing me. I’m excited! We’re probably going to have to order a custom one, from either Dell or HP (probably HP), so that I don’t get stuck with an INTEL POS graphics card! Wish me luck!

I Think I Need a New Bed


Or at least a mattress. We’ve had this mattress since we moved in together, January of 2002. Nearly 10 years. I think it’s time to look into a replacement. Why? Because looking into laser treatment for back pain just seems a little wrong, in my opinion.

Maybe it will help Josh sleep better too. Or at least keep us from waking up and sitting up and making all sorts of noises as all of our joints pop.

What I Wonder

I’m watching Julie & Julia on Lifetime right now. The blogging part really speaks to me. I can’t quite put my finger on why Winking smile

In seriousness, though, I do wonder if people are actually reading my blog. I wonder if there is anyone out there.

I know I don’t have that interesting of a life. I’m boring, and I’m plain. I have a sense of humor, or so I think, but it doesn’t come through in writing well.

In 2012, I’m not going to stress on it, though. I’m not going to worry about if people are reading. I’m going to do this for me. I’m going to do this so that I can remember, create a MEMORY, something I will enjoy. If someone else enjoys what I write, then so be it. That would just be icing on the cake, so to speak.

How will your blogging life be different in 2012, if you’re a blogger?
