I first wrote this post with a bunch of negativity attached to 2010. And being that I have a new years resolution to have a good attitude, I thought that needed to change. So here is a roundup for 2010:
-My creativity/braveness skyrocketed. I did things this year (some with the help of others) that I never imagined I could do! Reupholstering chairs, creating a headboard, painting/glazing old furniture, creating complicated pillows (to me) with no pattern, jewlery boards, roller shades, and probably more. As a result, I seriously have gained this confidence (probably a bad thing) that I can do anything! I'm not scared to try things that look hard and I'm not scared to experiment and pick out stitches and the whole shabang.
-Clay changed jobs to Web Development- which he LOVES. I can't tell you what a difference it makes in life when your husband loves his job.
-Both Clay and I discovered that our boss's are perfect for our situation and that we couldn't be in a better place at a better time.
-I successfully made a cheesecake. yum :(
-I got to see my whole family at thanksgiving.
-My hair got long.
-I successfully went without treats for 6 full months!
-I started a business...and yeah, it was pretty unsuccessful but that's okay! I'm still pretty proud of myself...and I'm still gonna keep trying with it:)
-Clay and I found the right doctor. We got a right diagnoses. We WILL get better. This is the biggest blessing of 2010. With all the bad that comes with it, in the grand scheme of things...it's so very good.
I'm confident this year will be a great one. 2011? I'm hoping for some big changes. Here they will be:
1) Study scriptures every day
2) Have a clean kitchen before I go to bed each night
3) Truly only cheat on our no gluten/no sugar diet one day a week
4) Get me cured of Lyme Disease (I'd say Clay...but that isn't really reality for us this year...I think I've actually got a shot at it)
5) Continue my creativity and exceed my level I'm at right now
Those are pretty good ones eh?
I hope that everyone's 2011 is great! I know mine will be. It's all about the attitude. I read a post where this woman she always picks a theme word for the new year...I decided my theme word this year is ATTITUDE. I think it will serve me well. I'm determined to have a better post a year from now :)
PS- Clay IS feeling better. He informed us all last night. For instance...he had a work party where it was at this big gymnastics place. Clay did a lot of stuff! Like...dodgeball, diving in a pit of foam, doing flips on these ring thingies, sumo wrestling, and this weird thing where you push each other off of these stands with large q-tip looking things? Anyway- funny thing...I didn't even realize it but he was doing pretty dang good the next day considering! Usually...he is like out for a few days. But he was fine! Isn't that GREAT! He still has a long ways to go obviously...but any improvement is great news!
