Its about fifteen before midnight, and I'm sitting at home typing on the computer. Anthony has to get up at 4:30 a.m. to go to work so he's in bed sleeping, and I wasn't invited anywhere for New Year's Eve. I decided not to go out because I felt kind of lame going without him. I'm not upset about it though.
The beginning of the year was kind of wacky, the end has been very quiet. I don't think I accomplished a lot in 2012. At least not some of the things I wanted to. But, there have been years in my life where it was about learning and reflecting and 2012 was a year very much like that.
When my mom was alive, she'd make a prediction each New Year's Eve about what the next year would be like. The prediction was always general, such as "an exciting year of changes" or "its going to be a difficult year". She was right more often than wrong.
I have a strangely good feeling about 2013. I don't know why, but I do. I think it's going to be the best year I've had in a long time.
One thing I do know, is that I've posted on this blog more than ever in the last year and I've really enjoyed it. So, you can expect more in 2013. I'm averaging about 100 visitors a day now so it seems like the effort I've put in has been worth it. Although I write it mostly for my own enjoyment.
Here's to an awesome 2013... not only for me, but for you too. Happy New Year!

The mountains to the north are about 1/3 covered with snow.
