2011 coming to a close

I can’t believe we are at the end of 2011 already. Just to be clear this year FLEW by. I am not sure where it went. (well, okay three kids, an active social life, and burning man, and a engagement may have done it) It doesn’t seem like it has been 12 months since we rang in the year. This year was EPIC in more ways than I can count. Let us highlight a few:
1.     Sean and I got the kids into new schools.
2.    We made it through a year of living together without killing eachother.
3.    Every kid had a birthday and we didn’t kill them.
4.   We started a Real Estate company.
5.    Sean got a raise and another team.
6.   We finished remodeling the basement.
7.   Sean and I put in dozens of new flower beds.
8.    We went to Burning Man and came back.
9.    Dakota learned to read.
10.                       WE got engaged!

Those are just a few of the things we did this year. Not in any great order but all there. We had a lot of fun.   We did have our stretches of the not so good too.
1.     Seans father died.
2.    Brain radiation was brutal.
3.    Well all radiation was brutal.
4.   I can’t think of another but, I am sure there was more.

What am I looking forward to in 2012?
          I am expecting 2012 to be a great, challenging year. I am looking forward to seeing our company grow and prosper even in these hard times. I know that we have what it takes to make it. I think that the challenge of running a small business will bring lots of to-do list into my life and probably some stress.
          Sean’s good friend Scot is moving in with us until he can recover from his brain surgery. I am looking forward to the laughter Scot will bring to the house. I am also grateful that he wants to come to our home to do this. He is an incredibly talents person who will bring a lot of energy to our household. I know that it will be a lot of adjustments but, I believe in the end having Scot here will enriched all of our lives. But more than anyone’s I think Sean will feel joy being able to help his friend during this VERY rough time.
          As for the kids they will do more this year than they did last. We will have more rules but less tantrums as our children become little adults. I cannot wait to see what our children do with themselves this year.
          Last but not least me. I am hopeful for another great year of therapy that will continue to strengthen my chances against this cancer. I am thankful to be seeing 2012 will the door still open for maybe 2013. I am going to be planning a wedding in a few months. Then one day this year I will wake up and be Mrs. Jones. Wow crazy idea. Uh?

We will be out celebrating our amazing New Years. I will post some pictures later!

  1. I am also experiencing many of your thoughts about the New Year (as regards health.) Her's hoping that this year will be kind to both of us.
    You achieved many wonderful things last year!
    Happy New Year to you all.
