Each time the calendar ticks forward I'm reminded of the day in the 5th grade that my best friend and I sat in the playground and calculated such important milestones as what year we'd graduate from high school and how old we'd be at the year 2000. Our calculations didn't go any further than that because we really couldn't conceive of actually living to be 33 years old, yet alone older!
Anyhow, as I've been re-setting various devices for the new year, and making some plans, I figured it might be fun to chart some of the numbers for 2012.
Soooo... without further ado...
Page views for my blog: 104,071 (who'd-a-thunk-it!)
Top 5 posts of 2012

- How to Make a Living Without a Job
- Shopping with the King of Frugal

Ad Revenue Earned: OK, I probably shouldn't post that, but it's $8500 more than last year - Woo Hoo!
Months Remaining on Mortgage: 11 (due to both my diligence and my father's generosity)
Miles Driven: 748 (It was looking like I'd come in under 600, but then Sputty got sick and the endless trips to the vet began - he's doing pretty well BTW)
Miles Ridden (on my bike): Around 1000 (the count got messed up during the switch to my new bike, but that number is pretty close)
Longest Bike Ride: 49 miles
Fastest Speed Logged on Bike: 30 mph (screaming down a big hill and not entirely sure I liked it)
Pounds lost: Around 12 (I consider body weight to be a fairly hand-wavy number, so this could be anywhere from 10-15 depending on how you count it - any way you slice it I think this is called "Riding your ass off!")
