2012 here i come.

Last years new year resolution was to forget responsibility and travel and learn more about myself; and I did just that. I started the year out with Gord in Chicago, and I could not have imagined anything better. We had an absolutely amazing time.

Then off to DC on a train, with my grandmother. It created a lot of memories for both of us, and I enjoyed the time with her. after DC I saw Glee *live* in concert with my old man friend, Keith. I always have a great time annoying the bejesus out of him, so it was good.

Then I moved out onto my own. I found my own place, signed my lease (no cosigner for me) and out of the nest I went. The next week I saw backstreet boys in concert (amazing) and flew to Vancouver to be with my love.

Things didn’t slow down. I started being a nanny to three wonderful brats ermm I mean kids, I went on a cruise, and ended the year spending over a month back in Vancouver (I really love this city). I ate healthier this year and found I loved the elliptical.

I would say it is rather successful.

This year my resolution is to run 400 miles on the elliptical (yea..thats a lot). And to continue to eat EVEN HEALTHIER.

I think I already drive stacy crazy with my ‘I only eat whole grain pasta’ ‘why do you eat that? if you do this instead its soo much healthier for you’ ‘omg I will cook for you. you are not eating out every night!’

I would also like to continue to save, so hopefully Gord and I can go on a cruise at the end of the year.

I have also decided this is the year I am going to find out what I am going to go to school for. And go back to school for it, even if its part time.

I have big ambitions, but I know I can get them all done.

Here is to a new, healthier, even better year for 2012.

Gordon is all ‘eat healthy be healthy blah blah blah’ and I totally agree; even with the blah blah blahs, but I am a women. Which means chocolate is vital for my survival in this world. So today, I walked to a drug store (like a snyders in the states), and bought a BIG bag of mixed chocolate candies. I then sat on the couch and ate a crapload of them.

And now I feel like crap. But at least I have candies hidden (oh yes I went there)?

I have decided I don’t really have anything to write about, and don’t have any motivation to write. But I love my blog, and sometimes I do feel I need to write in it or get something off my chest. So it will stay here, but I will not be writing at all often.

My first day in Vancouver (I am here until the second week in January) I was all ‘I am going to be so cool and walk here and there and everywhere and explore and be super amazing and just like a local’ what happened was a wee different. I ended up getting lost. And walked into the wrong apartment complex when a cleaner guy opened the door for me and called me darling more than once and questioned who I was and what I was doing there and inspected my keys, only to find out when I walked away from him it was the wrong building. I also got a little lost walking to the seawall and that’s how I ended up all over.

But you know? I love living with Gord. We are starting to get comfortable around each other (I was little spooned last night because he said something mean and I was gassy…that will teach him). I plan on upping the kissing, I just have to get the courage to do it.

We cook dinner together every night which I love. I am doing the dishes so he can do what he has to do, and that means more time for me (and you thought I was doing it to be nice to him).

Everything is going well, and I am glad we have been giving this opportunity to have this time together.
