Happy New Year! This year, I was so ready to welcome 2012 with open arms. It's no secret that 2011 was a tough year for my family. There were way too many tragedies. 2012 is a brand spankin' new year, and many good things WILL happen.
I'm normally not one to make resolutions because, well, we all know how those go. However, this year I'd like to make some goals for myself.
There are MANY doctors appointments I need to make. I'm ashamed to say this, but the last time I was at the OB was for my 6 week post partum checkup from Lincoln. To my defense, I did have 2 appointments scheduled, but I just so happened to also end up getting my wonderful period for both of those appointments. I know you can still go during that time and all, but I just can't do it! I called my OB office yesterday and have an appointment scheduled for the end of February. Now let's just hope AF doesn't decide to show up then!
I also need to find a new primary care doctor. I haven't found one since moving to Connecticut when we got married 4 1/2 years ago. This is [obviously] way overdue. So alas, another appointment.
Next up, I need to find an orthopedist. Particularly one that at least has some knowledge in Osteogenesis Imperfecta. I haven't seen one in 6 years. My old one is out of Boston, and he's a pediatric orthopedist. I really need to find someone a bit more local. This is really SO important, and I'm mad at myself for putting this off for so long.
You know how some people dread the dentist? Yeah. That's me. I need to make an appointment for myself, and for Lincoln for that matter. Heck, Jared needs an appointment too...maybe we'll make a family day of it!
I need to get in shape! We all say this every New Year, and I know it sounds so cliche. I'm not looking to lose weight at all. I'm looking to tone up some and get my body physically stronger. I cannot tell you the last time I exercised. It's really important that I maintain some sort of fitness regimen to maintain my bone density. I need to be a strong Momma for Lincoln. I need to get my body ready to have another baby someday. I need to be strong for myself.
And lastly, Lincoln needs to be around kids more often. I'm thinking of checking out Little Gym and Kindermusik to see if he'd enjoy something like that. I also want to check out the story times at nearby libraries. Winter is upon us, and we need to figure out ways to get out of the house more often. I would like him to go to preschool next year for two days a week, but I think enrolling him in one of these programs would be great for now.
I think that's it. That seems like enough anyways! What are your New Years goals?
