Yeah, I'm pretty sure resolutioning is not a word but you get the point. I have been busy the past two days working on my resolutions/goals for the year. I have made a great shopping list and blank weekly menu plan.
The grocery store list is set up like the store (our store is set up crazy so we hit up dairy first and produce last). I have items I know we buy every week already on the list and lots of empty space for anything that comes up from the menu. I will be getting a years worth of grocery lists printed out tomorrow. I plan on binding them and putting a magnet on the back so I can keep it on the fridge.
I also made it out for my first run yesterday. I need to head out for today's run in a minute.
It seems most people who keep up with their blogs also do a recap for the year. My year was hard. I started it out tearing my calf muscle, then I found out I was pregnant on Valentines day, then I spent LOTS of time working on the planning committee for the Bridge to Bridge 5K/10K race that is held on Mother's Day weekend. The race went off and was a smashing success. A week later we had a private ultra sound to find out the gender of the baby. We had a stubborn one that would not give us a glimpse of the goods. A week later we found out we lost the baby. I delivered a beautiful baby boy that we named Luke. After that it was all I could do to keep my head above water. I threw myself into gardening and decorating projects. I also threw a fun birthday party for both of my boys. Making the cake and cake balls (red velvet) was a fun challenge.
Next I repainted the dining room and sewed myself some new curtains and painted the table.
G and I went on our first real vacation since our honeymoon....we made good use of the beach by remembering Luke.
Then it was time for Christmas and Christmas gifts to be made....
Here are some aprons I sewed for a friend and her two girls.
I accomplished lots of things and created lots of things but I still have a hole in my heart that can't be filled. I will always miss Luke.
On a side note....I know some of the pictures are turned, I'm still trying to fix that.
