I was going to do a nice little recap of 2012 and post it New Year's Eve, but Phil and I have been crazy busy the last few days.  I'm not even totally sure what we've been doing.  I think it was just catching up on laundry, putting Christmas stuff away, and cleaning the house.  Has my nesting kicked in?  I don't know, but I dusted the coasters, so I would say probably.

And after I thought about what my recap from last year would look like, it felt a little like dwelling on the past.  When Phil and I went to my neck scar's birthday dinner, we were talking about how different things were now than they were a year ago.  And we both agreed that we were leaving 2012 better than we came into it.

2012 - Cancer treatment, Puppy, and Pregnancy.  In that order.  The year definitely got better as it went along.

That's really all that you can ask for.

We are happy to say good-bye to 2012, and are hopeful that this year has a lot of great things in store for the Janneys.

Do we have any resolutions?  I'm going to call them goals for the New Year, rather than resolutions.  Resolutions never seem to happen.  So here they are in no particular order:

-  I'd love to get back into shape.  And by shape, I don't mean round.  :)  That gym membership we paid for all of last year and used a total of 5 times (each) is calling to me.  I have lofty goals of completing those two half marathons I said I was going to do in 2012.

-  Get to work on time.  Shamefully I will admit that I am usually a few minutes late.  Horrible HORRIBLE employee.

-  Keep up on the laundry.  This goal will be even more important once the babe gets here.  Currently, I like to wait until we have 75 loads of laundry to do and then kick and scream through the entire sorting, laundry, folding and putting away process.  It's the adult thing to do.

-  Be a better wife.  Between the cancer stuff and early pregnancy, Phil definitely took care of me more than I took care of him.  I'd like to pull my weight a little more.  And there's becoming more and more of it (as is evident by my ever increasing thyroid medication dose), so it is more important that I do that.  :)

That's all I've got for now.  I think that will be enough to keep me busy for a while.  At least until May when my main goals will switch to showering at least every other day and sleeping when possible.

I hope 2013 is happy and healthy for all of us!!
