My 2007 in Review post is still in progress. Maybe if I could focus better I would finish it tonight but my lack of an attention span has gotten the best of me.
It’s my weakness – my attention span…
Amelia was being uber cute today, as you can tell by the ‘clip show’. I can’t believe she’ll be a year old next week, and writing out this 2007 in review post is … I can’t think of the word (Hint to all my readers (including Greg): A thesaurus would be an awesome birthday present, seriously)… amazing; it’s so weird yet amazing to think and re-live the achievements of Amelia’s development and the development of my relationship with Greg; both have been breath-taking!
I have to say that 2007 has been the most action packed year of my life; I don’t think I’ve ever been through so much as I have this past year. I have accomplished a lot of personal issues and struggles. I’ve learned (somewhat) a lot about someone I’ve never met and how girls can really be.
But, these, and many other things I don’t have the mental energy to write about (as it’s 11:47pm as I type), are how we grow in life; how we learn from ‘life’s lessons’ and, honestly, I like a challenge. I like to have conflict thrown at me. Yes, it may get to me but in the end I take control and succeed with a lesson learned.
So, amid my blog surfing (and yes, I’ve been leaving comments when appropriate) I came across another New Years MeMe:
