Looking back, I realize this has been a big year! Much has happened. To begin with, Jeffrey and I celebrated 5 years of marriage. We tried to go dancing for our anniversary, but it didn't work out. I was misinformed. We played Karoke instead. I may be in love with it now.
This is the year we joined the 21st Century. Smart phones! Though now, after much research, I think I will be getting rid of my cell when my contract expires. Not such a fan of cell phones anymore.
I was blessed to get a week watching my brother's kids. It was glorious. 5 kids, who were happy, and had so much fun together, thrilled me. It made me want 5 kids. While we were there, Keith contracted pneumonia. It was the most interesting thing for me to watch. When the bigger kids were in school, Keith was lethargic, mopey, and sick. The moment the kids were home, Keith acted completely normal. Happy, energetic, playful. It made me laugh. The boy is so much like myself. Luckily we caught it early on and he was treated and over it in a matter of days. Talk about a blessing and a half.
The beginning of the year my headaches became dire. They lasted for a long time, and were frequent. I went on a quest to find a cure. Sleep, yoga, sugar, etc. Finally, I discovered that exercise helped alleviate the pain. Since then, I have used that as my cure. Hallelujah! Exercise is the cure-all. Love it.
In March my brother asked me to help him with a project he was working on. He was so stressed out, and I gladly helped. He was sewing a flag. Two orange circles, entertwined. It was a very important flag. One that he used with which to propose to his girlfriend! The happy news is she said yes. I was so excited for her to be my sister. I simply adore her.
I also got a few root canals. Not fun. But I love my dentist. I drive 40 miles just to see him, he is that great. I have had bad experience with dentists in the past, and a good dentist is irreplaceable.
Really, it was a busy beginning to a busy year.
