As 2012 wound to a close Mr. Amen and I sat down to think about what we had accomplished during the year and make plans for 2013. Since that sit down lasted approximately 1.26 minutes before someone needed our attention (baby, preschooler, mother or mother-in-law on the phone…not sure who interrupted our peace and quiet, but it was someone) it was a quick review and a non-existent planning session. I took it upon myself to record my thoughts and memorialize them on ‘ye olde blog.
Our 2012 in review, in no particular order:
We purchased & moved into our home .
|We celebrated Christmas in our home!|
|We had a successful VBAC. Attractive, I know.|
|We welcomed our baby girl|
|Baby girl was baptized|
|We celebrated the end of the tantrumy 3s as our son turned 4!|
We taught 2 great sessions of NFP.
Mr. Amen got a new job!
I got a promotion!
|We successfully managed Junior's allergies and had no allergy-related hospitalizations|
|We managed to get a decent picture of both kids for our Christmas card.|
We are looking forward to many wonderful things in 2013:
- House projects (painting, remodeling, landscaping, etc.)
- A real vacation
- A new job for Mr. Amen (starting today!)
- Implementing an organization strategy for the Amen househol
- Art for God’s Sake at our parish
- Focusing on our family
- And much, much more…
