2012 has mostly been really good. My older daughter's engagement broke off and she had to come home to live, but she has a job now, is building herself a life here, and has been a terrific workout buddy for me. I'll actually be sorry to see her move out, even if it is in the same town.
My mother's chronic health problems reached a terrifying crisis, but she survived it and is feeling better than she has in a couple years, now that they've actually solved her problem.
My mother-in-law had a cancer scare that turned out to be only a scare, which was a relief.
My younger daughter broke up with her controlling, manipulative girlfriend and starting having a life again. She missed out on one terrific educational opportunity because of this girl, and lost all of her friends, but now she's remade her friendships and is currently on a sailing adventure in the Caribbean until after the first of the year--and gets college credit for it!
As for me, I lost 70 pounds and went from being a slug to biking over 2,000 miles for the season--that's outdoor miles, not stationary cycle ones. I participated in a 150-mile, 2-day bike tour and raised over $2,000 for MS, and even though I didn't finish the second day I still felt like a success. Just this last week I participated in my first-ever 5k Turkey Trot, an activity I'd heard of in the past but had always regarded as kind of insane. I'm married to the best guy in the world, and I love my cozy little home.
Life is good. (And I am going to turn this into my blog post for the day!)
