Bite Me, 2011!

I am pretty thrilled to see 2011 go. It was sort of a dismal year for me and my fam. I’m trying to think of anything really great happened . . .

. . . still thinking . . .

. . . thinking . . .

Nah. Nothing.

I am completely excited for 2012. Everything will be wonderful and super and full of perfection. I am so looking forward to flipping that calendar page over and seeing January. Only that’s really just a metaphor because I have yet to buy a new calendar.

I have a hard time committing to one style of calendar for a whole year. A calendar says a lot about you. Do I want whimsical? Pretty? Funny? Or do I just want something plain with extra big squares? See, this is way too much to think about after having to endure Christmas.

This was my house a week ago.


Fortunately it doesn’t still look like that. It’s kind of how I feel on the inside, though. I have a lot of work to do this year, physically, spiritually and emotionally.

This is quite possibly the most pathetic and depressing New Year’s Post by any blogger out there.

Yeah, so. Happy New Year. Hope it’s better than last.

  1. I think it is really important to remember the bad years. Not to remember what happened in them, but to remember you had bad years. 2009 and 2010 were really bad for me. They were so bad that I try to not think about any of the specifics of them. And, like you’d expect, this past year has been much better because I guess bad runs can’t last forever, can they?

    I do love the new year. The idea of pushing a metaphorical reset button and having hope for a better time to come.

    I sincerely with you the best and brightest this new year my friend.

  2. Well, you designed a really cool-looking NEW blog, and wrote a lot of blogs that made me laugh right out loud. And you did have enough to buy all those lovely gifts that made that lovely mess in your picture.

  3. Here, here sister! As always, you are not alone! I told 2011 to bite me all the way through it and am looking so forward to making this year my year, cursing the Mayans all the way through for telling me this year is my last!!! 🙂

  4. Hey! What about that fabulous 40th Birthday cruise with all your BFF’s?!!! (Okay, so it was the circus circus of the seas, but hey, sans kids!)

  5. Jennie, love the post, we have had bad years too, but as your loyal readers, if 2011 was so bad, what’s a good year look like? Mostly just curious… Happy 2012!

    1. Be grateful that I spare you readers the pain and drama (the bad kind of drama) of my life. It exists, trust me.
