And wiser? Better?
Hmmm. I don’t know.
Yesterday was my birthday. Thank you for all of the face-book messages, text messages and phone calls. It was a great birthday. I worked out. Then Brian fed the kids lunch… Then I took the kids to the pool. And then when we came home Brian grilled some steaks and asparagus for us. I had planned on making brownies and Brian was going to buy a cake, but ice cream won out. He went and picked up Golden Spoon (Yum!) and a romantic comedy (Have you Heard about the Morgans–pretty bad.. ). I had a great day. I loved spending it with the family just relaxing and having fun.
So, getting older has me thinking about what happened this past year. Maybe I should read my blog?!?
Ironically, I remember last year that I was nervous about drinking because we were going through rounds of fertility treatments. Well, last night in the middle of the movie, I had Brian help me with an injection. We haven’t made any progress in that area. I’ve had an HSG done and an SHG done and everything they can check has looked good. Tomorrow I go back again for more blood work. I was at one doctor or another pretty much every day last week.
Last year, I also had just chopped my hair before my birthday. Now, I’m in the process of growing it back. And it’s brown. It’s a fairly dark brown for me, too. I decided to go darker because of a couple reasons. One, I am starting to go grey 🙁 Second, last year when I chopped my hair, I looked into donating it, but I couldn’t find an organization that would take it as it had been highlighted. I learned that if I dye my hair darker, I’ll still be able to donate it. And, another great motivation is the amount of money that I save by going darker on my own. I can stretch the time period between dyes because of the fact that it’s not as obvious and I can usually find coupons for my color, too.
Oh, I have an update. At the beginning of the year I set a goal of walking at least a mile a day. So, the goal was 365 miles on the treadmill this year. Well, it started out really well. I was going strong. Then, in March we went on vacation. And I got a little off track. Then, May the kids got out of school. June we were traveling about half of the month. July we went on the road again. So, I am a little behind. So far, I’ve walked 165.7 miles. That leaves me roughly 200 more miles in 159 days, or 1.26 miles per day. I think that this is still doable. Maybe if I work hard, I can get that average back down.
All in all, I guess it was a good year.
I really thought that V would be “ours” this past year. But, all good things to those who wait.. right?
That’s why I post so rarely, you have to wait for the goods. Ha!
