Goodbye 2010 - You Can Suck It

Friday, December 31, 2010
So, that was 2010, was it? Well, frankly I wasn't very impressed. Sure, it wasn't an overly shitty year but it certainly didn't rank as one of my top 10. Let's recap:

January: I turned 37. Yee haw. Long lost Lego relative Alberta Jones visited.

February: I began seeing a dietician who's advice consisted mainly of following the Canada Food Guide. Good thing I don't pay for this service. Yet another V-Day alone. Made big plans to visit local E-town attractions which never came to fruition.

March: My coworkers husband passed away after a very long, horrible illness. I began the summer from hell. Big Brother turned 40 and had a big party with the awesomest cake ever: the Necrinomicake. The dietician told me I was fatter than I thought I was. Yay!

April: Bought new running shoes and began walking more. Ate cupcakes. Planted balcony garden. Gained 2lbs following the dietician's advice. Tried a power yoga class. Stopped going to power yoga class.

May: Left Facebook. Earthquake Girl develops serious medical issue. Work future does not look good.

June: Won a gold medal. In cribbage. Coworker returns to the office. World Cup soccer/football.

July: Won tickets to the Edmonton Indy and actually enjoyed the experience. Canada Day came and went - I was in bed sleeping when it happened.

August: The trees began changing colours. Read the worst book ever. Began Tweeting.

September: Felt good about myself - lost 8lbs this year.

October: First snowfall of the season. Alberta Jones returned.

November: Paid off my overdraft. One small step for Karen, one giant babystep for getting out of debt. Attended 1/2 of the Grey Cup.

December: Seem to have broken my big toe (yes, THAT big toe) again. Spent Christmas Day in the emergency room. No Christmas dinner.

That was, essentially, 2010. I have no life. No excitement. Nothing interesting to report. Sigh. How sad. I suppose I should make a list of things I'd like to accomplish for 2011 but to be honest, I'm tired and could go to bed now (its only 535pm...). Still not 100% from the weekend. All right, here goes:

- concentrate more on improving my health (eating better, more walking once my toe's better, etc)
- read more (I'd like to make my way through 20-25 books)
- less time on the internet
- knit something for myself

There you go. Hope you all have a fantastic 2011. Please party responsibly tonight and make sure you have a sober ride home planned in advance. See you in the new year.
