Remember how I said I wanted to blog more often in 2012? Well I clearly failed. No real reason, I just got kinda... busy.
I figure the easiest way to do this is UPDATES!
After much deliberation and thought, J joined the Air-Force!! Of course, this means he has now been gone for almost a year on courses, training, etc. It also means his new dress uniform is ugly, but I will get used to that. We have been surviving on Skype, short visits and sheer willpower as Z and I miss him terribly. But ultimately, we know it is important that he is gainfully employed and SUPER proud he continues to serve Canada.
Also, he grew a mustache. (not so happy about that.)
I completed several of my 2012 New Years Resolutions.
1. I FINALLY got my full Driver's License. ( I knew how to drive, was just too lazy to go and get a real license, preferring to sit back and let bus driver's take me everywhere!)
I also got my first car: a beautiful 2012 Mazda 3 hatchback. Standard Transmission. Her name is Hermione.
Here she is at the Superstore:
2. I finally got serious about making my hands better. I have been seeing a top rated dermatologist, and experimenting with lots of different lotions and potions. The results have been mixed, but things seem to be improving!
3. I also returned to work in Jan./ Feb. 2013 in a new role. (same company) I work a few minutes from home, with an AWESOME team, and have been LOVING my new job. I am SO happy I made the switch.
4. Lately I have been embarking on some self-improvement ventures. It's been a long time coming, and partially fueled by a personal tragedy, but more on that later!
I didn't get much reading done in 2012- but I am back on the bandwagon this year, determined to complete my 50 books this year, I am well on my way with 21 under my belt thus far in 2013!
The pupsters continue to thrive and be the best puppies EVER. I did however, have to send them on puppy vacation to the Island with my AWESOME in-laws. With J gone, and me working full-time and Z in day care, it all became too much for me, and something had to give. They are temporarily on vacation, and LOVING every second of it. I see them often, and can't wait to snuggle with them on a regular basis.
What can I say, other that the kid is the center of my universe. She is the smartest, most beautiful, funniest, most mischievous little girl on earth! I love her more and more every day.
She's grown up so fast, and gotten skinnier, and louder, and grown the most curly little baby-fro.
