Happy New Year!

Good-bye 2012, hello 2013!

2012 was an interesting year for my family. There was financial stress, adjusting to Hubby's new work hours and more frequent business trips, the joy of having a horse again, and the sorrow of a lost pregnancy. The gardens didn't produce nearly as well as 2011 and we never completed several of the major renovations we had planned. It was a difficult year and I'm rather glad it has come to an end. Don't get me wrong, all these changes were drastically needed but I am so thankful those difficult first steps are over.

2013 will be a year of growth. We plan to put in a small fruit orchard, upgrade the veggie garden, and build a larger chicken run for the girls. I'd also like to paint the house and replace the roof. Indoors we are (finally) going to remove all the ancient wallpaper and repaint everything. I also have my fingers crossed for putting down carpet in the bedrooms. Hardwood floors are nice but they are cold!

I am concentrating on getting healthier, focusing less on the number on the scale and more on how much I can lift and how far/fast I can run. Last year we completed our first 5k-we came in last and this year I want to be in the top 20. Maybe we'll even sign up for more than one race.

Munchkin will start preschool in the fall and I'm already having trouble with the concept. I can't believe how big she is, or that she's old enough to start school (even if its only 2 half-days a week). We hope to expand the family as well but we'll see how that goes.

What are your goals for 2013? What is the one thing you want to accomplish in the next 12 months?
