When I thought about New Years Eve 2011, I wanted grand plans. I looked at flying somewhere. I looked at going away to resorts with kids club and dancing away 2011. I wanted to forget job loses and failed friendships and the kindergarten year from hell.
But there was a new dining room set and a new washer and dryer. And instead, we are looking at a spring vacation in 2013. That I’m already planning.
Instead of grand plans we are at the beach house for a long weekend just the three of us. We shopped this morning, Doug is going to make a nice dinner tonight, and I just got in from a long run. My first 10k training run. In the end, this was exactly what I needed.
2011 ended as it should have, with a broken iPad and lost diamond earrings. Kind of fitting if you ask me.
May your 2012 be filled with health and happiness. And whatever you are doing tonight, small or grand, I hope it is just what you need.
