2011 By the Numbers

So it is now the middle of January. I still want to do some form of 2011 recap, so  here is 2011 by the numbers!

1: Trip to the Emergency Room,

1: Anniversary celebrated at a very delicious steakhouse, complete with flowers and a bracelet from my man

1: Morning in my old high school

1: New addition to the family! (our 102 lb. bloodhound named Big Baby)

and 1: missed trip to Hawaii! :(

2: Moves! One across the country, one across our town.

and 2: Missed days of work (one following our 1 trip to the ER). 

3: Job applications completed!

and 3: Friends having beautiful babies! 

and 3: Weeks of eating-in, almost exclusively...the longest amount of time we have avoided restaurants during our entire marriage.

4: Months of school and months of being jobless.

5: Big finals for hubby, but 0 big tests for me!

6: ..is close to the number of times I blogged. So embarrassing. 

and 6: times I stepped out of my comfort zone to meet new people since moving to our new town.

7: Trips to Hometown throughout the year.

8: Months of work!

9ish?: Different churches we visited or tried due to trips out of town and our move!

10: (approximately) the number of new recipes we have incorporated into our regular repertoire.

11: States visited including, but not limited to, Washington, Maine, Massachusetts, Virginia, and Texas! 

16: Church league softball games

21: times I felt embarrassed or put my foot in my mouth. (I'm guessing here people).

(approximately) 40: Known food allergies

60: Skin tests for hives

(approximately) 80: Prescriptions filled and taken! Sheesh!!

(approximately) 120: Boxes packed and unpacked.

Countless: hugs, kisses, shouts, "I love yous" and "I'm sorrys"

********

And Christmas by the numbers:

We saw: 4 parents, 3 grandparents, 2 brothers, 1 sister-in-law, 4 nieces, 3 family pets, 2 aunts, 2 uncles, 1 cousin, and countless friends and  family.  It was a busy but full time.
