THE YEAR OF........

It is that time of year again that whenever you turn on the news they are showing everything that happened in the year 2011. They show stuff like, celebrity break-ups in 2011, strange weather from 2011, who did what to who in 2011. I think sometimes it just gets old and you don't want to look back. Sometimes you just have too look back to see what you did last year. I was thinking and trying to figure out, what did I do for New Years Eve last year. I think I did the same thing I will do this year and that is probably fall asleep and bring the new year in right and that is resting. I went back and looked at a lot of my old posts and realized I had a very good year last year. As far as I can see 2011 has been good to me. I know there was some good times and some hard times but all in all it has been a good year. I went ahead and looked at my running journal for 2011 and I was surprised that I ran 149.2 miles in 2011. My best month was in August when I ran 31.8 miles. It is funny you don't think about these things but we accomplish so much in one year. I looked back on it financially and I got a raise at work that I was not expecting. I went from an E-5 to an E-6 last year and that is a little more money. Some times we think that we did nothing or that nothing special happened in the last year but if you really look back you will see how blessed you really are. It is something you really need to think about because it will not come back to you easy but you have come a long way in 2011.

I know some of us made resolutions last year at this time but do you remember what they were. That is why I don't make any except fun ones like I will not eat anything between the hours of 12 midnight and 6am. I always keep that one because I am usually asleep. Why make a resolution that you will not keep. I know for the next 2 months the gym will be crowded because of people making a resolution but I just think about March and they all will be gone. I guess I should not be so negative on resolutions because if it will change your life for the better I need to be more supportive. If we do make resolutions make them small and a goal you can reach because if it is to outrageous then you will probably not keep it. If you do make a resolution this year I will wish you luck and I hope you keep it.

I will admit that the coming year is going to be tough emotionally for us because our older daughter will be graduating from High School and she wants to go off to college and live in the dorms. She will be going to school here in Tennessee but she wants to live in the dorms. Now that is going to be tough on this guy because he does not want his little girl to move away. I know it happens but it is still tough ( I am tearing up as I type this). My other daughter will be getting her license and that will be a big change too because I know that will mean she will be gone more than usual. I am teaching her how to drive and as of right now she is doing a fabulous job. I am so proud of my girls and I know because I mentioned that a few times through out last years blogs. I think 2012 will be a great year.

So what are your resolutions going to be in 2012??????
