I am not sure I mentioned this last year, but New Year's resolutions are not really my thing. Therefore, I will not be making any, simply because I just don't believe that this new day in the new year can make you do things you don't want to really do.
For example, dieting, sure the first few days of January might go well, but after that, you are still responsible for watching out for yourself. Just like any other day of the year.

I just went running. My 5k route since I figured I should end the year on a high note.
Actually I am having a hard time thinking that the beginning of 2013 was just this year, crazy. We started the year in Germany. We went through our ups and downs doing this thing we do. DH lost his job. We made it out stronger as a couple. I lost two (what I thought were good) friends, making me re-evaluate just who I want in my life. DH lost another job. We clung to each other and our strength. Financial hardship. I graduated with my BS with honors, GPA 3.93. We fought. We loved with all that we have.
I can't quite say 2013 was a bad year because it really wasn't, at least not in a personal sense. Reading Kim's post the other day, reminded me of this post of mine from August. I was at that point she describes, giving up expectations simply because they weren't met anyway and I would have rather had a good relationship with my husband than being pissed at him constantly for not stepping up enough.
Well, for anyone who knows that stage I am sure you know this too: Giving up expectations was the best thing I could do because it finally gave DH the opportunity to do it his way or not at all, and we have been doing fairly well since. Mostly.
Sorry for this all over post, I am still breathing a little hard, but while I was running, I was thinking of all the things I wanted to blog about. Like yesterday. The kids turned out to have two playdates: One in the morning, leading to some awesome hanging out and watching Sons of Anarchy followed by a spanking on our red couch. DH had me lie on his lap, and he used his left hand to spank me. Ouchie but so intense and personal too.
The other one in the afternoon, which led to a very hot quickie on our bed. All in all, a very nice day for the end of the year and clearly a great indication of great things to cum!
Happy New Year everybody!
