Come on 2011!!!

I can't believe tomorrow is the last day of 2010.
This year, like the one before it, has just zoomed by.
Which, of course, fits with the theory that the older you get, the faster time goes.
Remember when we were kids and an afternoon would stretch on into eternity?
Or heck, how a 10 minute time out seemed like a disproportionately long punishment to whatever crime we had committed?
Now it seems like 10 minutes might as well be 10 seconds.

Anyway, this has been a wonderful year, and a year of many changes.
Many of our friends have gotten married, and we have been so blessed to be a part of that journey.
Bryan and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary, and now our 3rd is only 5 months away!
We got to travel and enjoy time with friends and family.
We've had to make adjustments (hello disability) but we're stronger than ever...even if I'm still adjusting to staying at home full time.
Hey, at least I finally learned to cook!!!

I'm excited to welcome 2011--even if we only welcome it by going to bed early lol.
2010 has been a great year, but I'm ready to get on with it, so to speak.
The holidays have been wonderful with all of the family time, but I'm ready to get back into a routine--and to determine what that routine is going to be, outside of working out and trying desperately to stick to the whole Weight Watchers thing (yeah, joining during the holidays? not the best idea I've ever had :-P).
2011 is going to be a busy year, but I hope one in which I and we establish positive routines and patterns, as well as enjoy what we have.

So, with that in mind, here are some goals that we have for the beginning of 2011:

Get all the Christmas decorations down and packed up.
Deck the attic.
Clean out the storage/nursery room--put boxes and Christmas stuff in the attic.
Paint the game room.
Join a church.
Actually work on the two stories I have going.

Finish setting up the game room (except for the furniture Bryan will build).
Keep working out and adhering to Weight Watchers.
Start volunteering.
Hopefully my husband will be convinced to hire someone to paint the downstairs from our attempt at the gameroom.  Otherwise, we start that rather overwhelming task.

Beyond that, there's quite a bit of "up in the air" at the moment.
Well, back in November (the 18th to be precise) my doctor cleared me to go off all of my meds except for my NSAID.
Yep, I've been pretty much unmedicated for a month now.
And to tell the truth, I cut out the methotrexate as of October 2nd--so that will be out of my system as of January 2nd-ish.
No wonder I'm starting to get achy!  Lol.

Again, the question remains: why?
Why deprive my body of the meds that prevent my immune system from damaging my joints?
Well, to get those meds OUT in preparation for trying to put something else IN.

Or rather, someONE else!

That's right!
Dr. C has cleared Bryan and I to start trying to have a baby at the end of this February!
Or rather, he said that there was never going to be a "good time" for me to go off all of my meds in order to have a baby, so we might as well do it now.
I'll have to go off the NSAID about a week before we actually start trying--NSAIDS and babies are a really BAD combination.

So for the next couple of months, my focus is going to be on getting into the best shape I can (without throwing myself into a flare) and our collective focus is going to be on getting several house projects checked off of our list!
2011 is going to be a very busy, very exciting year, and I can't wait for it to start!
