I like the sound of that...2012. Maybe it is the evenness of it, or the perceived safety of pairs and numbers. I don't know....but it makes me smile a bit.
I have big plans for this year. The most important of these began today. 2012 will be the year that I finally get in shape, and stay in shape. I mean, I know that I am not horridly out of shape, and I can wield a pitchfork for a time with the best of them, but this year, I want something better. Sometime more. We have a huge garden out back to manifest into huge degrees of edible, and I don't want to be the one coming up short.
Pair this goal up with the start of tax season (oh yes, starting tomorrow!), and we have quite the scene. But, it is going to work. 'Cause, I have a plan. Starting tomorrow, I will be working longer days, and be arriving home just in time to join my husband in tucking the kids into bed. And, once their heads hit their pillows, I will be heading down for a daily meet and greet with my new BFF, the treadmill. 30 minutes of running to nowhere, 10 minutes in a hot, hot, shower, and the day will be done. Each day.
And having started this running journey today, I am well on my way.
All this talk leads to my next goal of our expanding our homestead this year. Luckily, the seasonality of the bulk of our homesteading tail feathers well with my day job as a tax accountant. So, just as tax season is ending, the real work on the homestead will be just beginning.

For 2012, this sounds just right.
