I felt bored around 1 this afternoon and thought I'd try sewing. I got three of my maple leaf squares done in about as many hours. It took forever because I had to rest after each short trip to the ironing board about two feet away from my recliner. We both have been extremely weak and tired all day, and weary of any food other than cold bread. I was happy to get at least something done, but decided to save any energy I had left to take care of Steve, who now has a slight fever. But we are thankful to be entering a new year with the promise of lots of good things and times to come our way.
2011 will be an exciting year for both Steve and I as he finishes his last round of classroom time for his apprenticeship (hot school) and I graduate from UAA with my bachelors degree in History. I am sure that plenty of other exciting experiences lie in our path and I cannot wait!
Here is a quick look back at 2010:
Steve and I were snowmachining almost every weekend.
I began to blog more than once a month, and also got used to commuting to campus via walking, taking the bus, and/or riding my bike. Steve and I's 5 year anniversary of our first date.
Started to get into biking more seriously. My aunt gave me a Novara Randonee - touring bike which I've since logged many miles on.
Registered for the Gold Nugget Triathlon. Biked around a bunch and struggled to finish all the end of semester paper writing without going crazy!
Completed my first ever triathlon (the Gold Nugget). It was a blast! Also participated for the first time in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, which was an amazing experience.
Logged close to 100 miles on my bike, and got a job interview at REI.
Hired on at REI. I get to work bikes in the summer and the ski wall in winter - it's been a great place to work and six months later I still love it! Also, my BFF from high school got married and I was in her wedding.
Baked my first ever loaf of homemade bread and went on to bake more bread and lots of other yummy stuff.
My first ever niece was born, and Steve and I celebrated our two year wedding anniversary.
I turned 24 (scary)
I struggled once again to get through the last couple of weekes of school assignments, which was especially difficult while working and trying to finish my 25 page senior seminar paper.
Got an A in Senior Seminar! Had a very merry Christmas, and also got really sick :)
How was your 2010?
