W-G is 11!

Happy blog-birthday to me!
Can you believe I nearly missed it? The ELEVENTH birthday of this blog actually took place on January 4th, two days ago, but I was having too much fun with our nephew Kurt to sit in front of the computer. That’s pretty much been the story of the year, I guess. If I’m not out (literally) running around, I’m usually on Facebook, Twitter, Ravelry, DailyMile, and Health Month. The poor blog has fallen way down the priority list. Still, as I said last year, I keep postin’ and you keep readin’. We’ll keep going as long as we can. As always, I’ve compiled some fun statistics to celebrate. (Previously: 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003.)

Looking back on my goals for 2011, I didn’t actually accomplish that many of them. I did manage to hand off the Knitters Guild webmaster position to someone else, but I promptly volunteered for another role. (D’OH!) I joined the IIBA and went on a training course. We have made some progress on our kitchen and garden plans. And hey, I RAN A MARATHON. But the second half of the year was difficult, and I dealt with illness and injury that wrecked my other running goals. I lost a few pounds, but not as many as I’d hoped. Work was challenging as I dealt with changing responsibilities. I’m really looking forward to turning things around in 2012.

Goals for 2012: Renovate the kitchen. Run 1100km in the calendar year and get my 10K time to under 60 minutes. Lose 15kg. Sew a dress for myself and continue with transition to “dressing like a grown-up.” Sort out my US tax situation. And as always, win a goddamn blue ribbon at the Easter Show!
