The biggest thing to happen this year: the move. We are living back in Texas and I'm very happy about that--even if I am sleeping on a double bed and depressed about housing prices.
My new obsession: trapeze. I can't believe that I started flying less than a year ago. And in 9 months I've been able to take off unassisted and complete a bunch of tricks. My next two goals--returning to the board and flying out of lines.
Year of the Zoo: We went to 6 zoos I think. We got to see lots of big cats, and some baby ones too. Houston was cancelled because of rain. Maybe 2013 will be the 2d year of the zoo.
Obsession: My weight. I lost weight, I gained weight. I did yoga hard core, I was lazy. It has been a roller coaster of a year weight wise. Right now I'm doing a super low-carb diet. I'm sick of it even though I've lost inches. I don't know how my mom did this for months and months. It always boils down to exercise for me. Lack of exercise leads to weight gain. I do better with a high protein diet and regular exercise. I need to commit to regular exercise. I'm only doing this low-carb diet thing until January 10th, then I'm going to go back to my 30-40-30 diet yoga, and work out DVDs. And there is no excuse for not going for a walk. It is an easy way to burn calories, and instead I just sit here on my ass....
Jobs: My job at Hopkins changed this year, and I started doing motivational interviewing. It is a kind of psych therapy. I finished up with the last of my participants just before I left for California. Unless they come up with something else they would like me to work on, I'm unemployed. There are some high paying jobs here in Austin that I am qualified for. They would require lots of travel. I'm not ready to go back to work. I would like to find a house first. I'm considering that my job right now.
Travel: 2012 took us to Denver, California, and New York City. I'm hoping 2013 will take us on an international trip.
The blog: I've passed over 1000 posts. I think this is post is 1007. Wow.
2012 wasn't bad, but I hope 2013 is better.
