I don't watch the Best of Everything shows that are on this time of year either. I don't really have a reason, I'm just not interested. I could be self-important and say that I only look to the future and don't care what is behind me, but we'd all know I was lying because, well, I spent six years of college looking into the past. (Side story: If Joshua and I could have dinner with five people, dead or alive, four of our people are the same. Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and George Washington. Match made in heaven, I tell you.)
Could it be that I'm just so boring that there isn't really anything to recap?
I'm going to say that is probably the best answer I can come up with. Why would I recap "Oh yes, in January, I got up and went to work. And then in February, I got up late and went to work. Same in March..." and you get it.
This year though has been full of milestones for us. We've got so many firsts going on, and 2013 looks to be a continuation of our lists of new experiences.
A few off of our 2012 list:
Josh graduated college, passed state boards, and got a job in physical therapy. (I'm still so proud of him).
We ripped up carpet, vinyl tile, and put down laminate floor.
We saw a urologist, then a fertility specialist/RE, started medicine for IUI, and decided against IVF.
We assisted puppy birth (hopefully this can also go on our "last" list too).
I accepted that my carefully laid plans for life aren't up to me, and let go.
I learned that fried food is better than baked food. Hands down.
I started a journal to our child, and fell in love with someone I still haven't met.
I watched the entire Friends series.
We sat through two awkward meals in order to meet our baby's birth parents.
I cut off most of my hair.
I failed at several pins, but the strung out on Opana hair was my favorite.
I drank too much wine and wrote a post about the junk in my purse.
I was forced to run outside in the winter, and had a great fall.
I assembled a crib.
We told family and friends that we're going to be parents.
I told my brothers about SuperBaby.
I heard our baby's heart.
I can't even imagine my life one year from today. I don't have a clue what it is going to look like. I know, for certain, that this time our life really is going to change. Our life already has changed.
So maybe now that I'm not the most boring person on the internet, I'll do a recap every year.
