It’s been a while

Sometimes life gets in the way of everything non-essential.  Work, school, and family are a given, and my poor blog has been left in the dust.  I haven’t completely forgotten about it, though.  There has been a lot on my mind.

I’ve been thinking about making changes.  Changes, changes everywhere, eh?   My brother is a dad now (yay for babies)  and her arrival made me misty.  School will end for me in Spring (yay for my MIT) and that ending has me thinking of new beginnings, what’s important to me, and how to keep things in perspective.

This time of year always gets to me.  I reflect, get teary, then angry, reflective again, then determined.  The goal to make each year a little better than the previous one.  That’s generally what we all want, right?  2011 has been pretty good.   While I haven’t hit the jackpot, I’ve done ok and learned a lot.

Here’s to the last few weeks of 2011 and making changes.
