I was really hoping that 2016 was going to be a good year. I suppose it was better than 2014 by a long shot.
I had so much stress this year. I questioned so much this year. I don't know that I have answers to everything - but I certainly have questioned pretty much everything - my parenting, my faith, my talents, so much regret.
I did have some successes this year. I finally finished my flip house and sold it for a profit. I bought a new house and we've settled in fairly well. We took an awesome vacation as a family.
Of course - getting my car broken in to made me question more things. Should I have not gone on vacation - am I being punished for trying to do something positive? It certainly put a damper on the memory of the vacation :(
I didn't manage to lose any weight really. I did work out 2-3 times per week every week other thank this week. That is definitely a positive thing - I'm definitely stronger and I think I'm more fit than I've ever been - even though I don't look like it.
For 2017 I really hope that I can actually look better than I do today. I'd love to also be able to find a group of people that I could have book clubs with or something. I love my family - but it would be nice to do something with people that aren't only family. Maybe someone to see a movie with that isn't a kid's movie. I also hope to sell my old house. I'd like to end 2017 with only 2 houses. That is my goal for now. I don't think I'll buy another house to work on until 2018....I'll spend this year getting everything done in my house and getting set up to hopefully buy another house to fix up.
I'm really hoping for progress with Malea. Things are definitely better - but there have been new stresses come up this year. I guess she isn't in trouble with the law or doing anything bad like that. I should feel blessed - but I would like to feel like I'm not constanly failing at life.
I am glad to see this year end. I still have things that I have to figure out in 2017 left over from 2016 - but I'm really hoping for it to be a better year. I'm really trying and really think I deserve a better year.....Please 2017 be good to me.
I am a wife and mother of 2. I have many different interests - baking, home renovations, music, education ;)
