So that's a big FAIL on all fronts...

Hi there, I'm "hawtinside" might remember me from such posts as, "I'm not saying I'd like to build a summer home here...", and "Please don't squeeze the Charmin!"...
So, yeah.  Been slacking on everything for about two months so bew me on that.  Lots happening though...
My friend T's cat, whom I referred to in the last post, unfortunately took a turn for the worse and ended up passing away, around the $14,000 vet bill mark. I felt so bad for him.  Life is funny though...a few weeks later, another friend of mine made the difficult decision to find a new home for her cat due to her inability to spend enough time with her. I mentioned it to T, not wanting to push him but also not wanting to decide for him whether he was ready or not. Long story short, Ally moved in on Dec. 10th and everyone is adjusting well.
My doctor's appointment in October was disappointing as I weighed in at only 1 lb. down from my last visit.  This was a bit of a blow, since I had been working out consistently and eating pretty well for 4 or 5  months. So, in response, I quit doing all of that.  Yes, I know...mature!  No excuses, I just gave up a bit.  I also got the news at that appointment that I likely have a thyroid deficiency and that might actually partly explain the lack of weight loss, along with the crushing sleepiness I feel all the time but I haven't managed to find time to do the follow up blood test to confirm yet. That goes right to the top of my "to do" list, and I'm actually hoping to possibly take care of that today, once and for all.
The brother-in-law's wedding came and was lovely and everything went very well but it just served to reinforce why I really want to get married on a beach in shorts!  All that pomp and circumstance just isn't for me.  I went through a condensed version once already and have NO desire to do that whole thing again. Luckily, my love seems to be okay with this plan and I'm positive that once we get down to our sunny destination, everyone that goes with us will agree that my way is SOOOOOOOOOOOO much better!
Christmas has also come and gone. First one without my mom.  It's strange but although I thought about her almost constantly leading up to the holidays, I didn't think that much about her through them.  Not sure what that's about really, except that maybe, because she's been gone almost a year, it made it a little easier to deal with now? Also, it was very busy with running around and stuff so yeah, I dunno.  I still miss her a lot and I think about all the stuff she's not here to see and it makes me sad...the thought of the wedding and maybe babies without her around sucks. But I guess we'll do what everyone does and suck it up. In fact, given how the holidays went, I guess we've already started...
Anyway, the New Year is just around the corner and all I can say is: BRING ON 2012!  2011 was not a great year for me in a lot of ways but I am hoping that 2012 has lots of interesting and challenging things in store for me.  I am renewing my committment to not only my health and working out, but to this blog.  I want to make a lot of headway in changing my health in the coming year and I want this blog to be a reflection of that process.  Join me and cheer me on...goodness knows I need the encouragement!
Happy new year everyone!  I wish you all health and happiness in 2012!

**Edit 1:48 p.m. - Totally got my blood done this YAY me!  Already keeping resolutions and it's not even the new year yet!  :oD
