Another year is winding down. This year has been a lot of things: difficult, wonderful, scary, pleasant, heart wrenching. There really aren't words to describe, adequately, all the things this year has been.
The highlights: I quit my job, took 4 months off and then went back to my job. It was really the best decision I could have made because honestly? I love this job and I'm good at it and the people I meet intrigue me and I keep doing and learning and it's good.
Chris quit his job of 12 years to take another position and he's really liking it.
We started a business of sorts and that's a bit scary but we are learning as we go and so it's good.
My mother joined Facebook which is just completely weird in a variety of ways that I can't even put into words. I thought she never would but she surprised us all and did. This next year should be interesting to say the least. If she ever joins twitter, where I spend the majority of my social media time, I will be shuttering all of my accounts and going into hiding.
The lowlights: Several people who are dear to me are having health situations. Several others passed away all in December. December was a bad month for losing people and my heart is a bit bruised with it all.
I am hoping that 2015 will be better on both a personal and professional level. I have plans (as always!) and can't wait to be able to implement some of them and share some others.
I am waffling over my word for 2015. I've never picked one before but suddenly, I'm all about wanting/needing/desiring/must have a word. I'll do the eenie meenie minie moe thing in the morning and then post which word won. ;-)
In the meantime, I have pizza to order for a little girl's sleepover that is being held at my house tonight while we watch the ball drop in Times Square (just before I crash and sleep for 12 hours.)
Enjoy the last few hours of 2014 and I'll see you next year. (So cliche... but also true.)
