I'm really looking forward for this year because I am nearly positive that it is going to be full of only planned craziness, none of this out of control crazy that my life seems to have a way of attracting. For instance, we plan on buying a house this year, which will be a whirlwind, but a planned adventure as well.
Once, I tried to count how many houses I've lived in during my lifetime and I lost count in the mid 20s. You can imagine how exciting it will be for me to move into a home, own it, and plan on staying in it for (what?!?!) years. I'll just have to learn to fulfill my gypsy needs with travel rather than with obsessive moving.
Some of the unplanned crazy from 2011, because I feel like sharing:
I homeschooled my kids for two months while we were
We drove halfway across the country twice with two kids, a dog, a lizard, and a ferret, and finally made it here to a different house, and a different state, to start a new life together.
I started this blog (181 posts!), mostly to help keep me sane while I homeschooled the kids in Oklahoma. I learned a lot about HTML and gained a huge appreciation for public school.
I got married.
I started my Etsy shop (65 sales!!), also to keep myself from going crazy as a new housewife. The dishes are only entertaining for so long...I learned a lot about owning an online business, paypal, and macro digital photography.
So there you are, a glimpse through my last year, pretty crazy/exciting, right? Cheers to the up and coming 2012, to stability, settling in, and more craziness (but please more of the planned-for variety).
Happy New Year Y'all!
