2012, The beginning of a new year.

As 2012 begain, I considered my next project.  In typical BG fashion I began several different projects all at the same time.  In 2011 I made one goal to start and finish one thing.  Now I know that does not sound very ambitious; however, I chose to participate in the Team in Training (TNT) program.  The TNT program trains you to complete an endurance event and in return you raise money to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  The good news is I succeeded in my goal and had a great time doing it!

Looking forward to 2012, I ponder how I want to spend my time.  So I began searching for projects that would help me decide and journal a transformation from work, eat, sleep to a rich and fulfilling life!  It was my lucky day as I found a scrapbook class called reclaiming my time at Big Picture Scrapbooking.  How lucky am I to find what I am looking for in a scrapbook format!
Below is the cover page for my journal, reclaiming my time.

In 2012 I also want to continue to focus on health and wellness.  Therefore, I am going to use Cathy Zielske's Move More, Eat Well movement to inspire me.  

It is going to be a fabulous year.

I am grateful!

It has been a while...

It has been a while since I have posted.  So let me try to pick up where I left off and summarize til we catch up to 2012.

June 2011 I completed the 1/2 marathon in Alaska.  What an exhilarating accomplishment and I am grateful to each and every person who contributed to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. 

After returning home, work became the focus as well as trying to decide when to take medical leave to address the issues found during training for the 1/2 marathon.  It was decided to take the leave Nov 21st through Dec 18th.  Let me just say that I felt that time flew by during that 6 weeks.  

Dec 14th through 24th Tracy and I had a vacation.  I can take it easy and relax at home or in new places, right?  That is what I thought, anyhow... Was completely worn out when we returend home.  But how is that any different from a vacation even when you are not recovering from surgery?

We had a great time.  The first part of vacation was for T.  He wanted to play the golf courses at The Doral Resort in Miami, FL home of the Blue Monster.

I opted to relax and read.  I did join him on the course as an observer and camera girl. 

The next leg of our trip was a cruise with our family.  I was looking forward to spending time with family and just relaxing some more.  Overall it was a fabulous ending to 2011.  I am healthy and we spent quality time together.

I am grateful!
