The last blog entry of 2012

This is the last blog entry of 2012.

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!

My last drive home from work for 2012 at Kolb and Speedway.
The mountains to the north are about 1/3 covered with snow.
