The New Year

Wow! I see that WP has changed since I last blogged. I’m not sure if I like it–I can’t even figure out how to insert an image where I want it to go. Oh, well.

Since my last post, a lot happened (good things), and I am still not depressed. That I’m not is amazing to me! After so many years of cancelling plans, or not making them at all, this year I’ve had the energy to go out (with my husband, not by myself yet) and do things.

For example, we flew halfway across the country to see my family, who I haven’t seen in about 10 years. My dad, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews. (Actually I saw my dad at the tail end of summer, when he and his friends took a cross-country trip on their motorcycles.) While we were in town, we did all kinds of touristy stuff, like off-roading in an all-terrain vehicle.

On other occasions I didn’t feel like doing what we had planned to do, but I didn’t once think about cancelling! I went ahead with our plans and ended up having a great time, which is usually what happens.

I’m hoping that in the new year, my not-depressed state continues. I want to keep having adventures, learn new things (I start a drawing class next week), and write. I hope I’ll be able to blog more frequently and regularly.

What are your plans for the new year? What are your plans for recovery?
