DH swept me away to South Padre Island for New Years, our first overnight away from our daughter Calissa. It was hard, but needed, and worth it... did I mention we'd earned it!
First off packing- it was so nice to be able to throw outfits in a bag and not get flustered at how bad it was going to look or the typical 'I WISH I could where something like this____.'
It was nice to be active, not moody, walk the beach and not be out of breath. Confidence means more impulsive adventurous behavior that paid off with some really neat vacation memories! Seeing and conversing with dolphins right off the dock(not paid for, literally just happened!), a sea turtle rescue and seeing baby sea turtles at the rescue center, sea shell hunt leading to finding a massive puffer fish, great food spots, great people, just neat. We kept it simple and it led us on a great non stop adventure.
On new years we were responsible and healthy by walking a little over a mile to and from the bars at the doc to see fireworks. Its made for great conversation and revelations for what we want in 2012 as individuals, spouses, and a family.
I am still sorting my resolution and small goals for 2012... my mom is here and honestly I can't think clearly. I need to put xmas stuff away, and my home is in need of cleaning desperately! When I am ready you will know :D The pressure is on since I was able to surpass last years goals, I really want to set the bar high and concour it since I have had so many years of *fail* ...er... gt back up and try again next yrs :] Not 2012! Never ever again!!! I'm ready to fight!
Thanks for reading my ramble :]
