2010 Another Year In The Books

I can not believe this year is over. It really does seem to have just flown by. I have no idea with most of this year other than I know it was a roller coaster.

It ends on a bit of a low note. I am sick in bed with laryngitis and a nasty cold and we are still waiting on the final results from the myriad of Dr's P has seen in the last 2 weeks.

On the bright side I am starting my new years with scrapbooking and friends to set the tone for the year!

Here are some highlights from 2010:

Jan: kick off Who's that girl Design team. It really pushed me to create something every month!

Feb: Kim's visit to Atlanta, I get to see some of DaVinci's work in person, New lights and outlets = no more cold dark studio!, Lots and lots of scrapbooking!

Mar: Winning a GDT spot on Scrap Freak, Buying a Kindle,
Alice in Wonderland in 3d, Fiddler on the Roof in a theater, nasty fall down the stairs

April: First trip of the year to see my family! This time off to PA to visit at moms house and celebrate Easter. Kristopher has a buzz cut and gone are the little boy days!

May: Blythe Break is officially over! our 7th wedding anniversary

June: Off to Maine to celebrate Alek's birthday and spend even more time with the kiddos. I make a vow to see them at least 3x a year if not more!

July: Annual 4th of July get together with the inlaws (Patirck is almost as tall as Paul!), midnight showing for Eclipse with Blythe in tow!

Aug: A super hot summer, lots of Blythe meets!

Sept: Lots of Blythe fun, Went to japanfest and it made me realize how much i miss Shinkendo. Several new girls including my first "investment doll"

Oct: Back to Maine for the final trip of the year. I feel like the boys finally remember me one visit to the next

Nov: I turn 38. Yellow River Game ranch trip, birthday crop, I start "running"!!! and Les Miz turns 25.

Dec: Fun with friends who treat me like family, bonding with Bella, a flexible work schedule!

So there it is just a brief recap :) See y'all next year!

Some Success, Some Failures and some Exciting Scrappy News!

Just a quick recap of what Ive been doing:

Im still "running" and training for the Couch to 5k. Though I had to restart week 1 this week. I got midway through week 2 but had too much knee/shin pain so I am going back and starting over. I did most of my running outside but now that it's below 30 when I get home at night Im running on my treadmill in the garage; which while cold is still much warmer than outside. I am counting this a victory as other than missing one run in 3 weeks due to injury I have kept at it. I still suck but I am doing it.

I finished all the journaling on my Daily Gratitude journal for November. Now i just need to put it all together.

I am working on a December Daily. I am not actually putting anything in the album yet as I find it easier to take pics and do my journaling every day and then actually put it all together at the end.

I totally failed at my dolly 365. my camera battery and card reader died at the same time right around day 12. I know I suck. This is my third attempt and third failure. My life just doesn't allow me to do this right now. Maybe if I get a new itouch for Christmas so I can take pics on the go it might be different.

And the exciting news! ScrapFreak is closing (I know Im soooo sad) Jess and I decided to make a scrapbook challenge forum and combine the best of the freak with the best of WTG! so coming this week Ill be at Creative Soup! I invite everyone to come join us. Right now we are just chatting and getting to know one another and might have one mini challenge before things kick off in Jan.

I hope to see some of you there!
