My New Year Meme

My New Year Meme

Just spreading the Meme from Melissa at Stirrup Queens and Sperm Palace Jesters (this is a good one!).

Here are Melissa's rules:

"In honour of 2007 quickly approaching--and since I suck at actually doing memes once I'm tagged, I've started my own. I'm not sure if this is kosher--if a regular person can start a meme or if there is a group of men and women tucked into a dark room somewhere creating these lists. So...um...I tread carefully, attempting to not offend the Memers with my offering.

I have created this meme which can be done in two different ways. Either you can do all seven categories and list two answers for every category (get it? It's 2007, so I'm playing on the two numbers: 2 and 7) OR you can choose two of the categories and list seven answers.

The categories:
Things you learned this year
People you met
Things you don't want to take with you into 2007
Things you want to hold close as you pass into 2007
Things you're looking forward to in 2007
Things that were life changing in 2006
Things you hope to accomplish by the end of 2007

(see--those are the seven categories. Now you can either give two answers for each category OR you can choose two from that list and give seven answers)."

Things I learned this year
1. Through persistence, I could in fact fit back into clothing I wore before I got married in 1998!
2. That I'm homozygous for the MTHFR mutation (stealing that one from you, Melissa, since we have the same problem!) and have Anti-Thyroglobulin Antibodies (Tg-Ab), both of which are causing my recurrent miscarriages.

People I met
1. My husband's boss, who I would like to give a swift kick in the ass to!
2. Many, many new ladies and gents of Blogs, FFriend, C-Moms and F-Family. Your support is amazing!

Things I don't want to take with me into 2007
1. My anxiety and panic over what is to/not to come.
2. My ongoing stomach issues.

Things I want to hold close as I pass into 2007
1. My family
2. My close friends who have supported me through our losses

Things I'm looking forward to in 2007
1. Maybe a healthy, sticky pregnancy???
2. Hubby getting a new job so I can cut back to at least part-time work and spend more time with Chris.

Things that were life changing in 2006
1. My last miscarriage and finding out why I am experiencing recurrent losses.
2. Going into counseling and starting a blog - and allowing myself to grieve.

Things you hope to accomplish by the end of 2007
1. How to stay positive for the future. I've lost my optomism over the past year.
2. Maybe pick up a new hobby (like knit, crochet or needlepoint??) for relaxation.

Who I am tagging:
1. Jess at Walking By Faith
2. Joy at El Mundo de Mamacita

I'm sorry you have to steal that one (I'm sorry we both have it!). Here's to a wonderful 2007.
