Happy New Year!

It is the first day of 2013, and it is a pretty good day.
My son let me sleep for 3 hours uninterrupted this morning. My parents landed safely home in Detroit. And I'm almost done knitting him a pair of longies. (Actually, the knitting part is done. I just have to finish weaving in ends & then lanolize so he can wear them.)

Since I would much rather look forward to the new year than look at what I didn't finish in the past one, here's my list of what I'm looking forward to in 2013:

Watching my son grow. Because, really, Clinton is the most amazing thing that has happened to me. Ever. Way more so than even joining the Navy.

Taking the advancement exam. Again. And probably again. It will be attempts 5 and 6 to get that promotion, and the advancement rates can't get much worse...so I may have a shot. (I'm masochistic like that.)

Sewing clothes for myself. That is, once I lose the baby weight. I have a skirt and a dress that I would like to make.

Being a tourist on my island. While my parents were visiting last week, we took a short excursion around Kujukushima National Park, and I realized how little we actually know about where we live. So hopefully we can start to fix that.

How about you? Anything exciting planned for the New Year?

  1. I remember when three hours of sleep was a huge triumph... and sleep feels so much better when it's so hard to get! You've got an adorable baby, and I *love* that you knit him a hat while you were in labor! :-)
