Goodbye 2015.... Hello 2016

Goodbye?  More like Good Riddance.  Ugh.  2015 sucked.

Seriously.  Diabetes struggles, insulin, the big bad Depression Monster, my father passing away...  there really aren't any wonderful, fuzzy memories I can recall about the year at all.  Maybe if I gave it a lot of thought.  But I'm not gonna.

We are just going to shake that off and start anew.  How about it?

Here we are.  What do I want from 2016?

I want a calm year.  And if it can't be calm, I want it to be the fun kind of chaos.

There have been a few changes going on.  Miss Iz is homeschooling now.  Or rather, online schooling.  We're going to try this out until the end of the school year and see what we're going to do for next year at that point. 

I very reluctantly, but desperately began antidepressants.  I was afraid to, because Zoloft had such a negative effect on me, but the doctor tried a different class of drug and OMG.  I literally had NO IDEA how bad I had gotten, depression-wise.  I knew it was bad, or I wouldn't have sought help, but it's like someone flipped a switch and I'm alive again. 

So I'm literally starting this year off with a completely different mindset.  And I have goals!  Scoff at resolutions all you want.  I've never really been the cool kid and I'm not planning on starting now.  =)

  • Walk a combined total of 2016 miles with Isabelle and Zoe.  (Olivia refuses to participate in physical activity, no surprise there)
  • Reading Challenge (more on that later)
  • 365 Declutter challenge
  • Do several 30 day self-improvement challenges this year
I'd like to lose weight.... I managed to steadily gain all year last year and need to reverse that so that I can hopefully reduce my insulin sometime in the future.  That mess is expensive.  I have a few other goals I haven't really fleshed out quite yet.  I want this to be a year of improvement.  It's going to be a good year.  And hopefully I can make time to blog about it?  I'll try.  =)


  1. I also have no interest in looking back at a horrible 2015. Moving on!

    Insulin makes you put on weight which makes it more difficult when you are trying to lose. Have to do it anyway!

  2. 2015 seems like it was a horrible year for all, myself included. I hope that with the new year you can accomplish all of your goals and I look forward to reading about all of your adventures!

  3. I would like to make your spider man hat pattern but what does tc mean ?
