Musing on the past year…and on my plans for the future.


So here we are, last week of 2011. When I think of the things I planned for this past year, I realize that my life has taken a couple unexpected turns.

I looked at the goals I wrote here at the end of last year and haven’t accomplished any of them. HA! Not really surprised but I have accomplished so much more than I ever expected.

The Phd plans have been put on hold by my other plans which I will go into in a few. the level three isn’t done but it will be soon.

Writing… I miss writing. Need to get back to that sometime soon. This blog was supposed to be writing and recipes but has become mainly recipes.

No, I haven’t gotten organized, although the room I mentioned last year may actually get cleaned out this week.

I didn’t lose weight, although I did join a gym the beginning of December. I have been working out 3-4 times a week, so hopefully that will happen.

So what did I do?????

I worked with my good friend Margaret Woods to write a charter school application. it didn’t pass but it will this year. We are starting to work on it again so we can resubmit it this summer.

I have nearly finished my administrator’s license so that when the school gets approved I will be ready to be the principal.

I have developed several recipes and improved my cooking ability and will soon be ready to put my cookbook together:)

This has been a great year! I have taken a path I didn’t expect and in return found some measure of confidence. Love my life and looking forward to the journey!

One thought on “Musing on the past year…and on my plans for the future.

  1. I remember the sadness in your letters and posts a number of years ago. Your life has taken a wonderful turn, and I am excited for you. We can’t always imagine the direction our lives will take, and that is a good thing because life would be so boring, predictable, and limited. The rough times that we have had can finally be appreciated for what they were—-moments that shape us into more than we thought possible.
