i think what meatloaf is oh so eloquently trying to say here is make the best of what you’ve got. noted, sir.
i’m not generally in favor of new year’s resolutions. i don’t think most people keep up with the arbitrary ways they decide to better themselves at midnight on january 1st. after a few glasses of celebratory bubbly, it’s easy to get all gung-ho about losing those last 5 pounds, eating healthier, etc. that said, i do have a resolution for 2k11. i vow to cut back on whining about our current situation and make the best of the last few months we have left in indiana.
i REALLY did not want to come home from texas. i loved every single minute of our two weeks there, and this trip further reinforced that this move is the best thing for our family. after 14 days surrounded by family, delicious food, and warm sunshine it was extremely difficult to get excited about going home. our apartment is still too small for us. the midwest sky is still grey. the temperature is still hovering below freezing. BUT i can’t change any of that right now. i can, however, use the next 5 months to get things in order, save up money, pack, and house hunt. so that is what i’m going to do. i hereby declare 2011 to be the year of not whining about things beyond my control. also, i’m calling it as the year of the awkward length skirt. you just watch. i already bought two so far this winter.
