My 2012

Whenever I speak to a friend I haven’t spoken to in a while, they ask me what’s new, and I always say the same thing…nothing.  I explain that while things are good, they’re not particularly exciting or notable, but that’s OK.

For this post I’m making it a point to call out some highlights of my year to confirm that in fact, I did have a good (and maybe even exciting) year.  Thank goodness I have a filofax and document as much of my activities as possible.

So let’s see…


Started the year off right with a very spur of the moment trip to Green Bay for a playoff game against the Giants.  Amazing.  Green Bay will always have a place in my heart for being such a great town with wonderful fans.

Trip to Ocho Rios Jamaica.


25 mile Trek bike ride to benefit breast cancer research.

November and December

While both were good months, there wasn’t anything particularly notable in my world.  But that’s OK.

So looking back, it was a good year and I did some fun things.  I’m hoping for something similar in 2013.

On my to do list:
Travel (that’s always there) – I’m hoping to get DJ to Europe, ideally Spain, so we’ll see
Bike rides – I’m thinking starting with a 20 mile and culminating with a century (100 mile)
Maybe a duathalon (bike/run) (spell check keeps saying it’s spelled wrong but the only suggestion is “adulthood”) 🙂
Maybe maybe maybe a half-marathon – maybe

What’s on your list for 2013?

From the bottom of my heart I want to wish you the happiest New Year!  Thank you so much for visiting and reading my often sometimes pointless rambling. 🙂

Catch ya in 2013!
