Well, here on the East coast, it is officially 2012. So Happy New Year! And to those that have not yet rung in the year, come re-read this in a few hours. ūüôā

I’ve been without phone or internet since Tuesday, I went on that family vacation to the mountains in North Carolina I previously mentioned. It was fantastic, and so refreshing to be without technology for awhile. We got to play in the snow, I went sledding for the first time, and almost took out a 7 year old in the process. Don’t worry, no children were hurt in the making of my first sledding experience. P and I drove 12 hours to get back in 1 day today.

So what am I still doing up? Packing of course! It makes me a little sad to see my room slowly getting larger as everything I possess is packed into boxes and trash bags(minus the things that were stolen from my storage unit…check out my last post¬†for that story). Tomorrow P and I will officially be living together! I’m taking the plunge and¬†finally¬†living with the man I love. I’m very excited about this next step, and to start 2012 out this way. If you’ve read my blog before, you know that 2011 just hasn’t been my year. Bad things just seem to keep happening, so 2012 has to be better. So, I’m very excited to start 2012. I’m excited to get a clean slate, and to move on! So HAPPY NEW YEAR person reading my blog! I hope 2012 is as good to you as I hope it’s going to be to me! You’ll be able to read about it as I continue the 52 week challenge!

Oh! I almost forgot, my new year’s resolution! I resolve to floss everyday and go to the gym at least once a week! I figure those are easy enough! I’ll let you know how they go!

Week 3: And on the 11th day of Christmas, my storage unit was robbed!

Man, I wasn’t lying when I said a few posts ago that every time something good happens in my life this year, something bad follows right behind. P and I went to visit my storage unit last night, for the first time since September, only to find that my mattresses had been stolen, along with my box of dishes, and that my locker had been disheveled and boxes had been overturned looking for what little valuables I had in my locker. I had to call the police and file a police report, who think it may have been the guy who stole my purse back in October. See, the only other key on earth (allegedly), is on my key ring that was stolen with my purse. The officer who came to take my statement and dust for prints (which I found out is definitely not as accurate/exciting as when you see it on TV), told me that I’d be surprised to know what people are able to find out with just a little bit of my information. It’s very likely this guy was able to somehow find my storage unit by my name/address which he had access to by stealing my purse. P thinks the guy got in mission impossible style from the top of the unit just to steal my mattress. I, on the other hand, think someone got lucky with a key that is the same for their lock as it is for mine. Haven’t you heard of people getting into the wrong car, and not noticing until they have started the car? That’s kindof what I think happened, but instead of it being on accident, I think someone noticed our locks were similar and decided to steal my things.

I was upset, to say the least, but with everything else that has happened to me this year, I couldn’t help but laugh at the situation. At one point, while on the phone with my mom, I told her “Well, at least they left my Swiffer!” I was trying to come up with the word for the emotion that I was feeling, and I think defeated is the most appropriate. When the manager from the storage place called me today, he had the nerve to have an attitude and, not outright but more in his tone, accuse me of lying. It’s not like I’m claiming that millions of dollars of jewels were stolen or a flat screen TV. Just some dishes and a mattress/box spring set.

I’m just over this year in it’s entirety and can’t wait for 2012 to start. I’m going out of town Monday, so I may have to write another post before I leave to keep on schedule with my 1 post a week goal. What do you think happened, reader of mine? Mission: Impossible style shenanigans? Purse thief strikes again? Trial and error finally gone right? Whatever it was, I just hope that the insurance I’ve been paying for for the past 2 years is able to reimburse me for the items that were taken.
