Day 248

Another year down, a new one ahead. I cannot bear to do my usual reflecting and I refuse to acknowledge what number this year marks to my barrenness. Instead I'm going to think positive and lay out my goals for the new year.

What I hope to accomplish in 2009:
  • Bring back Ben's wife of years passed (pre-infertility).
  • Train for the Iceman mini bike race (Slush Cup) , in November.
    • Goal: to finish without dying!
  • Put together an action plan for writing my book.
  • Obtain a decent GMAT score and begin my Masters program
  • Take my photography to the next level and experiment with my new tools.
  • [This is where I am supposed to write "become a mom" but I just can't do it this year...]
My biggest fears for 2009:
  • We won't get our baby before June (my best friends are both due).
  • We won't get our baby at all.
No matter what happens, I am looking forward to a fresh start, new perspective, and another chance at life. Hope you're looking forward to yours too.

Happy New Year!
