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!

Where did the year go?

Next week, we start the month of December, the last month of the year. Looking back at 2011, I’m really hoping 2012 is a little better. This year has ended up being a wash, for every good thing that happened, there was a bad thing:

+ I got a promotion at my job! And then

– 2 weeks later I got into a car accident, one I am still going to the chiropractor for.

– My purse, with about $700 worth of my stuff was stolen, but then about a month later,

+ I found out I got into FGCU, and will be continuing my education next semester at this university.

2011 will be a memorable year for me, for being the half good/half bad year. I feel 2012 can only get better, right? For starters, P and I will be moving in together in January. When I asked him if he wanted to move in together in December or January, his reason for picking January was, “Why not start the new year fresh, just me and you?”. Sounds pretty logical to me. For the 1 reader I have, you’re probably thinking, wow, 4 years and you’re just now moving in together? Here’s the thing, we started dating when he was 18 and I was 20. We’re still practically babies. Plus, I live by the words: “I’ve never heard someone say, I wish I hadn’t waited so long, but I’ve heard people say, I wish I hadn’t rushed into things.” As someone who is a child of divorce and is super realistic about the 50% divorce rate, I’m ok waiting for things to happen. If we’re meant to be together, what’s a few more years of dating?

Man, that was one heck of a tangent I went off on.

Anyway, next year has to be better. With the risk of “jinxing” it, I think I’ll stop now. But maybe if I put those positive thoughts out there, they’ll come true.
