My Awesome Year in Review!

Well, here it is, the new year.  Yet, I'm not terribly excited.  I'm not sure why, but I guess I forgot about New Years, that it is a celebration, and that a new year with no mistakes in it yet is on it's way.  I didn't make any resolutions, although I could very easily throw a few out there.  I'm afraid they wouldn't be very...heartfelt, though.

Instead, I would like to recap what has happened to me and my family in the last year.  It has been utterly amazing, and I still can't believe it really happened in such a short space of time.

  • We went on a family trip to Cincinnati and had great fun, although we weren't convinced that it would make a perfect family vacation spot. 

  • We said goodbye to all of our newfound friends in Kentucky, people we had only known for not even a year, packed up all of our stuff, and headed out west again.
  • We were fortunate enough to be able to visit our dear Sam and her family again on our way! As I have said before, that was definitely a highlight of our adventurous trek.

  • We moved to Idaho.
  • We cleared out a heap of Greasewood to make a nice yard for our motorhome.

  • I moved in with my cousin, another friend, and their foster-child, as well as seven Schnauzers.

  • I helped to build a completely covered porch, and did a lot of work on it!
  • I traveled to Astoria with my Great Aunt.

  • We (as an extended family) went camping.
  • Then (as a single family), we went to the coast!

  • I went camping again, and had a blast.
  • Pip, SmartyJones, and I went to a historical martial arts demonstration/competition and enjoyed our silly selves to the max.
  • I have been learning to trust.
  • I traveled to Reno, Carson City, and Virgina City (Nevada).

  • I became a Pampered Chef Consultant.
  • I bought my first really, truly, expensive yarn. It was originally $12 something, and it was in the clearance bin, plus I got 40% off.  I gave it away at Christmas time, because I couldn't decide what to do with it!
  • I came up with an idea for my handcraft business.
So, that's it in a nutshell.  Actually, now that I get to the bottom of this post, I have come up with a resolution. I need to blog more!  I love blogging so much, but my mind almost always draws a blank. *sigh*

Happy New Year, my dear friends and companions!  Blessings!
