Ho, Ho, Howdy, ya’ll. We still don’t have any snow here, but since we used up our region’s decade allotment of “white christmas” last year, I don’t expect to see any until at least January. LOL. Not that I’m complaining…I like our region most of the time.
Anyway, I hope everyone has had a great year…we sure have! I usually send a small Christmas update in the Christmas cards, but this year, I’m just sending the link to this post. I’m not sure how this is going to work, since I’m usually forced to edit and rewrite over and over until I have it down to a small paragraph, and on this blog…I have LOTS of space…it’s like packing for a plane trip versus taking a road trip…lol.
But I’ll try to keep it short and sweet, and if you want to REALLY know how our year went (if you don’t regularly read my blog and know this stuff already)….well, you can just click over there in the archives and read back month by month. I’ll just try to hit the highlights. Haha.
So this year wraps up our 9th year as a couple and we celebrated our 10th anniversary on a cruise to Mexico. This year also marks the end of our 2nd year in this house, and our puppies are now getting close to 20 (in human years…lol). As fast as they grew, it feels like our kids have grown just as rapidly, since Munchkin (our girl’s nickname on the blog) is now a second grader, and K-man (our boy’s nickname on the blog) is now also enrolled at the same school in Kindergarten (since his birthday fell after the cut-off). From September to November, we had a family of deer basically living in our backyard (they were out there at least 5-8 times a week). We took our summer vacation in August and it was terrific…we loved spending time at the ocean and a couple friends were able to go with us, which was really nice. And finally (although I’m probably forgetting something, but I wanted to keep this short and sweet anyway), we had an overabundance of water in our basement in February, and a funny story in July to go along with it.
I think that will do it for the highlights. I didn’t blog very much earlier in the year, so I’m sure there are highlights I’ve forgotten. That’s one of the main reasons why I have a blog, you know…because my memory stinks…now I just need to remember to make use of my memory assistant. And I have gotten better about it, so now just to keep the momentum up.
And speaking of momentum, I have to get this posted and get back to my to-do list. Too much to do, too little time.
Hope you and yours have a very:
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
And for those of you who visit here regularly, this doesn’t mean I’m not blogging again til January, by NO means. =) At least, not if I can help it. =)
