Happy New Year 2013

So tonight as the clock strikes midnight 2012 will turn into 2013.  We survived the end of the world on December 21st 2012 as "predicted" by the Mayan calendar. We will never again see a date that is the same ...such as 12-12-12 and the fiscal cliff is still looming.

I am still pondering a "word" for 2013 but I am leaning toward serenity. I like the idea of a stress free mental state. :) I like the idea of worrying less and "believing" more. I like the idea of the serenity prayer which has some good advice. Change what you can, accept what you can't and be wise enough to know the difference. I'm ready for the peace, and calm, and steady feeling of serenity. I'm still mulling it over but it does have possbilities.

As we move into 2013 my husband is getting ready to retire...coming up in February and this will be a big change for our family. I plan to retire at the end of the 2013-14 school year so things will certainly be different around here!  Bittersweet....looking forward to it but realizing what it says about my age!
