A Little Bit Tart, A Little Bit Sweet Turned Three

This happened last month. I had this whole blogiversary bash planned out. But … do you guys remember last year? When I was trying to figure out a blogiversary prize? And then I joked that I was going to give everything to me?

Well… I kinda did that this year. :X

Let me explain.

I slacked off. Shamefully. I really stressed about it, and stayed up until 3AM or later on some nights, bu then I was like … you know what? This should be fun. And I do deserve a present. >.> This year has been … well, usual. From a death in the family the first week, to more deaths and drama and stress, and … just you know, it’s ok, and not ok. And that’s just how it is.

Then nearly every time I try to do something Firefox is just a bitch. I know it’s my fault, for having like a trillian windows open >.> But you have no idea how irritating it is to constantly deal with the spinning rainbow wheel of doom.

And damn. I didn’t want this to be an all whiny bitchy post. But to explain. I feel like I should say sorry, but I also can’t because I’m not sorry. I mean, I’m sorry for letting people down, for dropping the ball, but I’m not sorry I did it. (So wouldn’t that make this one of those hated “I’m sorry you got hurt” apologies?)

I WILL post everything, and back date, and do what I was supposed to, and starting now keep on schedule to the best of my abilities. I wanted to explain, and also to say THANK YOU for sticking with me, for being the strong, and for allowing me to give myself the gift of doing “nothing.”

I also want to blog about what I’ve been reading more – ME. And I welcome all of you to join me. <3 Then hopefully you like the new things I have planned in 2014.

Hugs and kisses!

 

Sandi’s Reflections on 2012

Hi friends! It’s time for Sandi’s monthly post! We’ve fallen off the wagon a bit, but hopefully back on it! I apologize for the delay – Sandi sent me her post on the 28th for the 29th… but it just didn’t happen. So… let’s reflect back on last year with her!

It’s so hard to believe that 2012 is in its last few days of existence.  Just a few days ago we thought the world would be ending, but it didn’t however we do know that 2012 is about to fade into hopefully pleasant memories for all of us.

For me personally it was a year of ups and downs without a doubt!  For a portion of the year I saw my professional life crashing around me, and wasn’t sure what I was going to do to salvage it, or if I really even wanted to.  What I did was listen to advice from some great friends (they know who they are) and put myself out there for a wonderful new position.  When talking about the opportunity after the interview I didn’t say if I get the job, but rather when I get the job, and now I’ve been in that wonderful new position for almost 2 months!  I can’t believe how the time has flown!

My reading life reached a goal I haven’t achieved in awhile.  I read over 100 books.  This was a combination of print, ebooks, and audio books.  I read some really great stuff this year.  I can’t even begin to narrow it down to a top 10 or even 20 list!  I would however say that Home Front by Kristin Hannah was a truly remarkable book, and even though it was a tear jerker, and many won’t read those it gave me a perspective on war and the impact that it has on families that I hadn’t previously had.

As I look forward into 2013 I have new goals to reach.  I have professional achievements in my new career field to meet.  I am not sure what those are yet, but I have a few days to decide.  I again want to read 100 books, and hope one or two of those have the impact on me that Home Front had.  Last but not least there is bound to be a personal goal to decide and strive to achieve.  Not a resolution per say, but something tangible that I can measure and see that I’m making progress towards.

So, curious minds want to know…what are you most proud of accomplishing as you reflect back on 2012?  What are you looking forward to in 2013?  Will you be setting goals?  Resolutions?  Just taking life as it comes?

Here’s to a safe happy new year for all!
