I’ve noticed a lot of the other bloggers I read are compiling year-in-review posts.
It’d sure be nice to have the time to sit back and review my 2011 accomplishments. But I’ll have to settle for a quick-hit version:
In January, I announced that I was flirting with going back to Atkins. We know how that turned out. I started in May and am down approximately 30 pounds.
In March, I finaled in the RWA Golden Heart, beginning a long, crazy ride and increased focus on my writing. Before March 25, I toyed with a pictorial food journal and got caught out with the Boyfriend in a snowstorm.
I didn’t blog much in April — only 7 posts all month. I was too busy adjusting to my new status as a Golden Heart finalist … and shopping for a dress for the awards ceremony.
In July, I laid out some “I want to finish by the end of 2011” goals. Half were completed. I’m not quite in the 220s, nor did I walk 100 miles. (I really need to start walking regularly again.) I also got injured playing softball.
November was a crazy month that found me editing not one but two 2012 Golden Heart entries while I tried to do the NaNoWriMo. I succeeded — barely, thanks to an 8-hour marathon on Nov. 30. I also discovered I could make homemade Thai Iced Tea.
Wow.Two hours later, my “quick” post has turned out to be a lengthy endeavor. Oh well — I’m sure I’ll appreciate it someday, when I can look back on 2011 with one click.
Maybe if I’m ambitious, I’ll do a look ahead to 2012, too. But with the Boyfriend around this weekend, don’t be surprised if I don’t get around to outlining my New Year’s resolutions until Jan. 2.
