I surprised my husband on his birthday.
I moved into a new house.
I celebrated 4 years of marriage.
I bought a new car.
I let my guard down a little.
I went to Saipan.
I baked cassava and decorated sugar cookies.
I cried in joy, grief, frustration and bitter disappointment. Sometimes I sobbed.
I went skydiving.
I read lots of books. I bought more than I read.
I designed some pieces that I am really proud of.
My favorite auntie died. So did an uncle I didn’t know very well.
I brought home a fish and named him Sherman.
I left an old comfortable job for a new, not-so-comfortable job.
I gave to charity, but not nearly enough.
I started liking spinach.
I rekindled a friendship.
I set a financial goal and met it!
I said some many things I shouldn’t have.
I met some really cool people through this website, a few wackos too.
I watched more reality tv than I care to admit.
I saw the dentist twice, the ob/gyn once.
I enjoyed the company of friends more and more.
I sold my first thing on eBay!
I redesigned my website (because I broke my old one).
I met Carolyn.
I took lots of lousy pictures and a few good ones.
I cut my hair short.
I stopped reading beauty magazines.
I started watching CSI more than Law & Order.
I renewed my passport.
I laughed so hard Pepsi came out my nose!
I fasted for a week and prayed really hard. On my knees even.
I climbed Mt. Lam Lam.
I saw Michelle Branch in concert.
I got to know my father a little more.
I planted a garden.
I found peace in acceptance.
Happy new year, friends. I am sending you all the love in the world.
