A Farewell to 2012

I know there is "technically" one day left in 2012, but it's about that time to look back on this year.  Thinking about 2012 makes me think of a quote by C.S. Lewis:

"Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different."
Nothing is entirely different about this year; nothing is entirely the same either. 
Life has been moving so quickly and sometimes I wonder how on Earth I turned 32 this year.  Even crazier is that Joe will be 35 in less than a month!  Stop this train. 
I suppose it's time to start making resolutions.  I have put them in print for two years running, and I intend to type them out again this year.  So here goes nothing:
1. Learn to walk in high heels.  (I have mastered wedges!)
2. Walk/jog/run at least 500 miles in 2013. (If I can run two half marathons in as many weekends, this should be easy. . .right?!)
3. LET GO!  Move on from apologies I have never received.  The past is the past and I can do nothing to change that--and maybe I wouldn't want to.  Life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful.
4. Practice listening more.  I tend to be the talker in nearly all of my conversations.  Maybe if I stop talking and just listen, I will learn a thing or two (or feel like my time is being completely wasted). 
5. Give serious thought to starting a family with human children.  I am content with Joe, Phoebe, and Mia.  I love our life.  If I'm being honest, I would be fine if it was just Joey and me.  A child of my VERY own would also be pretty amazing too. 
I think that's all I have for right now.  Maybe that's all I will have.  Who knows how my brain works??

Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3. . .

We're giving this whole blog thing a second go!  Let's see how long this lasts.
