2012 in Review

I did this last year and thought I would do it again this year, just for kicks. :-)

1. What did you do in 2012 that you’d never done before?
 Made homemade laundry detergent and attempted homemade dish soap. Also, gave birth without an epidural.
2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Some of them I kept, others still need work. My "resolutions" will be pretty much the same this year--hopefully I will keep them!
3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
 My sister-in-law had her first baby.
4. Did anyone close to you die?
5. What countries did you visit?
Just this one.

6. What would you like to have in 2013 that you lacked in 2012?
I hope to get more organized and better with things like meal planning. Just making more productive use of my time in general.
7. What dates from 2012 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
The birth of my son on Valentine's Day. My hubby had to deliver him because there was no one else in the room. :-/

Letting too much time get wasted.

Rent and other bills, without a doubt.
