A New Year's Survey - 2011

I posted this survey at the beginning of 2010 and I thought it might be nice to repeat with each new year.

1) What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before?

Taught GA's, participated in handbells performances, learned too much about gastroenterology, participated in a group devotional Bible study, witness my daughter accept Christ into her heart

2) Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

Yes and no.  I did make an effort to read through the Bible during 2010.  I didn't complete the task, but I'm going to try again.  I made some healthy changes in my life, but it was very on again, off again.  Both of these will be resolutions again for 2011.

3) Did anyone close to you give birth?

My cousin, Jill

4) Did anyone close to you die?
I guess it would depend on how you define close.  Our next door neighbor passed away unexpectedly on New Year's Eve.  He was a very kind, Southern gentleman.

5) What countries did you visit?

Sad to say, there was no international travel this year

6) What would you like to have in 2011 that you lacked in 2010?

My AINS designation (Associate in General Insurance through AICPCU)...it's a work thing.

Bojo - he's the best dog ever

13) Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?

Passive-aggressive attitudes, esp. rude digs through a smile. Recently, I wondered about insincere people...are they ever sincere and how do you know?  (this is the same as last year...some things never change)

Bills...
