My "Firsts" of 2010

Even at my ripe old age (just realized the other day that if I'm middle-aged now, I'll die when I'm 72 and that ain't too shabby), there were things that I did this year and I had never done before.  

Feel free to join me (just link back to my blog like a good friend) if there are things/events/experiences you'd like to record from 2010.

Here's my list of awesomeness:

  1. Used a Crock Pot for the first time since we received it at our wedding in 2005.  I'm getting pretty good at the thing too!
  2. Got a real good camera and spent some quality time learning how to use it.
  3. Started spending quality time on editing my photographs...I may finally have a hobby!
  4. Took the Crazies on a plane.
  5. Slammed my son's finger in our door two days in a row.
  6. Hired a babysitter.
  7. Cooked a whole chicken.
  8. Considered marriage counseling (who hasn't?).
  9. Wore a one-piece swim suit.
  10. Started attending spin class with regularity.
  11. Started attending yoga class with regularity.
  12. Suffered my first "sports" related injury (see 10 & 11).
  13. Watched a child be completely incapacitated by a high fever.
  14. Seriously considered taking my child to the Emergency Room.
  15. Contemplated what life would be like if I couldn't walk normally again.
  16. Really realized the kind of crap Sister has to go through on a daily basis.
  17. Left a note on someone's windshield b/c they parked too close to me.
  18. Really started to enjoy the Crazies.
  19. Baked cookies for the holidays (and found that incredibly therapeutic).
  20. Sponsored a child from Kenya.
  21. Used TV as a babysitter.
  22. Rekindled some great friendships.
  23. Allow other ones to slide trusting the fact that we're all too busy right now, but eventually we'll be back to "normal" (whatever that is).
  24. Practiced a random act of kindness (that checker at Target finally smiled when I offered her a gift card I wasn't going to use...I hope it made her day).
  25. Spent a lot of time trying to think of a way to thank a group of people who made my life the end, I came up with bringing lasagna, garlic bread, and cookies to my physical therapy office.  After all, they helped me walk again (dramatic much?).
  26. Was on television talking about my experience with infertility...the day before my knee surgery.
  27. Consciously started taking care of my skin.
