goodbye 2022

In 2022, I gained: deeper family connections

I lost: touch with some former students

I stopped: going shopping for something to do

I started: counting down to retirement (4 years)

I was hugely satisfied by: my teaching this year

And frustrated by: all the changes at school (again)

I am so embarrassed that I: hoard boxes

Once again, I: overestimated my savings

Once again, I did not: declutter

The biggest physical difference between me last December and this December is: my regular lymphatic massages have paid off!

The biggest psychological difference between me last December and this December is: awareness of depression triggers

I loved spending time: with my sisters

Why did I spend even two minutes: reading fake news

I should have spent more time: outside

I regret buying: a commemorative t-shirt

I will never regret buying the dress I wore to my nephew's wedding even though with that money I could have worn one I already had planned to wear

I didn’t get outside enough.

 Stories about conspiracy theories drove me crazy.

The most relaxing place I went was Boothbay Harbor.

Why did I go to the workshop I didn't want to go to?

The best thing I did for someone else was thoughtful gifting.

The best thing I did for myself was to pay off my car loan.

The best thing someone did for me was help me swap out my car--my neighbor gave me rides.

The one thing I’d like to do again, but do it better, is travel, I forgot how much I enjoy flying.

I hoard boxes, too! And conspiracy theorists get on my last nerve.
