Seattle fog

Auld Lang Syne

Oh, dusty, neglected LiveJournal—I'd love to treat you better in 2012 than I did in 2011. I'm sad that I've recorded so little in a year with so much, and, as with most neglected things, it's going to work better simply to begin again than to try to catch up. Lost a couple of friends here in my absence; completely understandable but a bit sad.

barlow_girl and I are settling into our new house, trying to find a place for everything and put everything in its place. Such a huge blessing to have a place of our own, something we honestly didn't think would ever be within our reach living in Seattle. The fine folks at karmaboxx are picking up their box(x)es from us tomorrow evening, and it'd probably work a lot better for everyone if they're empty when we return them (great service, though!).

Feel like I have a lot to figure out in 2012, enough that even setting goals feels a bit premature. Not quite sure what I'm shooting for, or which box any of my stuff is in. Hopefully I'll have some resolution on the latter tomorrow; the former will take more work. Merlin Mann's approach to fresh starts and modest changes seems better suited to my situation than some grand resolution. We'll see.
