Obligatory year in review post

Wow, it's the last day of the year. That's kind of crazy. It always feels like the year went by so fast when it gets to the end of it, but thinking back, it really was about normal pace. This year's been pretty jam-packed with Stuff. Heck, these last two months have been pretty jam-packed. And I just realized that my fingers are still a little too cold to type properly. I also just realized that we haven't seen any end-of-the-year memes going around this year. It's like everybody vanished from LJ around Christmas time or something and has yet to return.

So anyway, we almost never make New Year's resolutions, but I had the feeling that we kind of made it an official resolution last year to make more of an effort to get to Japan, so I was going to talk about how that was successful, but then I went back to check our New Year's posts from a year ago, and I didn't see anything about resolutions. But anyway, we did make it to Japan finally, so whether or not it was an official resolution, it was a success!!

We also got to meet Toshihiko Seki at Anime Expo, and we bought annual passes to Disneyland... I talked about all this stuff around Thanksgiving, didn't I? I thought it sounded familiar. Never mind. Instead of trying to write this all from scratch, I'll just go steal that meme from last year.

Overall, I'd say this has been a very good year for us. Soon it will be time to start working to make it just as good (or maybe better) next year. But in the meantime, Lego Dagobah is taunting me.

Today I'm thankful for New Year's memes, New Year's Eve Chex Mix, emergency breakfast supplies, Princess a Day lip gloss, and realizing that Lego R2-D2 can hover. That was a very important discovery.
