i hope you've been enjoying this holiday break as much as i have. right before christmas began, i got news that the pathology on the tumor the doctors removed came back benign! i cannot explain the feeling of peace and relief it's brought to us. this short paragraph hardly does the good news justice. maybe i'll get more comfortable talking about the details, but for now, this helps. thank you for all your prayers and concern!
this month, this last year really, has provided a chance (once again) for me to learn about setting the bar lower and seeing that we still survive even if things go differently than i expect. coming off of that, it's an awkward time to set some new years goals, but doug has been helping me keep them simple and reasonable. here what i've come up with.
+ clean and organize our office into a more useful space
+ double the savings for my business this year. this is a smaller amount than you'd think, which means i can probably do it.
+ expand my knitting machine skills and catch up with my machine knitting group
+ finish the seat covers for our danish chairs
+ get better about incorporating smaller and repetitive projects into my work
+ have friends over to the office to work on projects together
+ call my friends more to go to late night movies
+ make more of a habit of exercising without any distractions and noise
some of these goals seem more daunting than the others, some might get scratched, but all have me excited for 2012. ha, as long the mayans are wrong!
