I don't think I'm a very introspective person. I don't tend to look back on the year that has gone by on December 31st and assess if it was good or bad. Time passes, lots happens and while I don't doubt that some years can be very good and others might be very bad, I tend to think in smaller chunks of time. Maybe it's because nothing has been bad enough to ruin a whole year and that makes me quite lucky indeed.
But since it is December 31st and I decided to take a moment to blog, I can say, 2013 was good.
Off the top of my head there was the Epic Road Trip, my Ballhockey team winning the cup, another fabulous Rhinebeck weekend, a few good running races (but not enough running which is entirely my fault), lots of pretty knitting, my kids continue to be healthy, successful and awesome, I'm still in love with the same guy after 25 years (19 married) and besides the "am I already so old as to need bifocals", I'm pretty healthy, successful and awesome too.
The one things I forgot to do this year was call out the fact that And She Knits Too turned 10 this November.
A decade of blogging. I never expected to still put words on the Internet and have people read them after ten years. Thanks for that. If you put up with me on Twitter or Instagram, thanks for that too.
I plan to keep writing this blog in 2014 and hope to do a better job of posting next year. Along with the classic resolutions of a) get more sleep and b) exercise more, that should put me in league with the resolutions of 95% of the Internet. But like I said, I'm not very introspective and so I haven't given it much thought (except the exercise thing...I feel like a complete lump and need to move around).
Happy New Year to you all. I hope 2013 was good for you and that 2014 is full of ______________ (insert desires here).
