Post Where the hell did this year go?
Seriously, 22nd November? Is someone having a laugh here?

Things I said I'd do this year -

1. Move house - Nearly, we had a sale fall through last month

2. Change job - Not managed that. Mixture of lazyness... and probably fear if I'm honest.

3. Climb Ben Nevis or Snowdon - Not managed either.

4. Turn 30 - Oh yeah, I managed that one! F*cker!!!

5. Move forward on plan to emigrate - Waiting on number 1.

Scary when you review your life in such simple terms. I must stop!

Obviously everyone agrees with me, hence the quiet nodding

I know my spring, summer, and fall have crept by. Every damned day has been like a Bueller day off. I've been a biking fool with several trips organized or participated-in. Wife and I organized and supported a 105 mile, three day weekend trip. The week before last I presented to the group for 2013's trip and never dreamed I'd have to tell folks "I gotta cap this thing at 40 people". Century rides, camping, bonfires, grilling, race organizing, even some movies, Yep.

I became the president of an organization I'd never heard of 2 years ago. Got two trails development proposals to drop off at four places this week. Had dinner with the mayor of one of our target municipalities last Saturday (some proposals are a slam-dunk!) so we should have about 20-30 miles of off-road trails to work on the next couple years...

Some things I did this summer I didn't start until July. -Next year they will start when the snow is gone. They were just too fun to only do for 4 months.

Painting? Nope.
Build shelves in garage? Uh.
Replace carpet I tore off the front stoop two years ago? Hmmm.
Yard work? Pffft.
Have an absolute blast wrestling every moment of summer to the ground? Hell yes!!

If 2012 was any longer, I'd be putting more on the schedule. Six meetings this week and NONE of them "work" related. Man, I'll be ready for 2012 to finally vanish. It feels like it's been here for-freakin-ever.

Time travel will eventually happen. Therefore we can go visit the past. Though not necessarily change it.
