Let's see what has happened to us all this year. For me, Biomom passed in February (as horrible as it sounds, it was sort of a relief) Blizzard or two in the early part of the year. I got in touch with another sibling (that makes the rest of them) Got a puppy. Love her to death! Struggled through with husband's paycuts...credit went in the trash this year Mighty Mouse learned to ride his bike this year. Sister came up from Florida and we had a complete blast! Went to Chicago in July for a business conference. It was fun, except for the horrid delays coming home. mother in law started having mini-strokes, diagnosis'd with tumor....Finally (recently) diagnosis'd with throat cancer and started treatments this week. Started services for Missy that have been extremely helpful. Paid for by the State, which was a relief as well. She has been struggling quite a bit this year. Got in touch with a cousin I haven't seen since I was 12 Got in touch with my aunt in Canada and my cousin, who I haven't seen since I was 21 We had the most amazing and emotional Christmas. I went from being worried about not being able to get much for my kids, to them probably having everything they wanted, but not spoiled (well, maybe a little spoiled). My family was amazing. husband's family was amazing. I got bonuses from both jobs. Made some money on ebay too. It was emotional from that level, to mother in law being sick, to having my sisters and brother to talk to on Got to see my youngest sister the day after Christmas (who is doing really well in a halfway house, after going thru rehab). This is the sister who I just got in touch with this past year, but hadn't seen her since I was about 21. Building a relationship with her has been one of the highlights of my year. After almost having my electric shut off twice this past fall, I think we are finally getting caught up with bills. Another blizzard.....finally got our street plowed last night, after three days. 30 Inches of snow. Whopper of a storm. Smowmageddon again. I'm sure I can come up with some more, but that's it for now. A year in the life of Loth. What's yours?
