I love going back and seeing all the things that happened over the course of the year, don’t you? It’s one of the fun parts of having a blog. That’s why I would still blog even if nobody read it but me 😀 I love reading everyone else’s recaps, too!
January brought lots of changes. It started off with a bang when I was laid off from one of my jobs (working 2 part-time in the same industry).
This was also the year of the snow. Ugh – the snow!!
February was the Blogger’s Healthy Heart Weekend.
Definitely going to host this again in 2012!
We starting working on the renovation of our house to add a half bath/pantry.
I had a decision to make to take a new job or work in an office with my current job, but ended with being able to keep working from home. I am so truly, truly lucky things worked out that way. It was more than I could have asked for. Getting laid off from the one job turned out to be a great thing after a bit.
May was really the start of the Year of the Flat Tire on the bikes.
It was completely ridiculous how many we had. Turns out it was probably from riding our bike trainers over the winter. This year, swapping out tires for winter riding to prevent that next year.
We finished up our house renovation – new pantry/laundry/half bath. My favorite part of this has to be the pantry.
(if you can believe, we still have a few touch ups to do in this room!)
Tulip mania in my garden this year. Yay!
I went vegetarian for a week.
June was my birthday month (it’s all about meeee!!!)
I went on a Becoming an Outdoors Woman weekend, which was very fun and I am going to do it again.
July brought about the 100-mile ride day! I said no more of those, and yet I find some sort of desire to do it again creeping in. Somebody please smack me – and hard!
We did the organized Tour de Farm bike ride. July really had a lot of biking in it. I did over 500 miles that month 😯 Insane.
August there was Hurricane Irene. We didn’t suffer much damage, but our neighbors in Vermont and downstate NY had horrible flooding.
I did the 3 weeks of no grains. That was actually fun and got me out of an eating rut. I also tried once again to get back into running.
I also decided to give up running for good. I signed up to become a literacy volunteer as well.
In November, the First for Women article came out.
And then Christmas, of course. It sure has been a busy year!
Question: Do you have a 2011 recap post? If so, link in the comments as I love to read them!
