Auld Lang Syne






Time to say "buh bye" to 2012 and hello to 2013.

2012 was a year filled with lots of ups and a few downs.  On the up side, John and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary.  I can't believe that we've been married that long.  It seems like only a short time ago, we were newlyweds, living in a condo and making plans for the future.  And here we are, 25 years later, our only child grown, out of college and living on his own and we are empty nesters.

We celebrated my parent's 62nd anniversary and my dad's 90th birthday.  I am so blessed to still have my parents.  At 90 and almost 84, they are in pretty good health with the usual problems associated with aging.  My mom a bit more so, having had several hip replacements and back surgeries and a few other assorted problems, but she is doing well and my dad is amazing at 90. Sometimes he wears me out!

John is settled into a new job and loving it.   And our son is doing well at his job too.  And for that I am thankful.

I have spent quite a bit of time with my parents, something that I always enjoy.  And I am thankful that I do not have to work outside of our home and have the flexibility to be able to help them.

One of my nephews and my niece have moved back to the area.  My nephew almost a year ago and my niece just a few weeks ago.  I have missed them so much and am glad to be able to see them.

As far as the downs, I don't want to dwell on them.  Suffice it to say that they are over and I am glad that they are.

My goal for 2013 is to blog more often.  So to my few readers, I wish you all the best for 2013.

Happy New Year.

Your "ups" are all wonderful things! As to the "downs," along with all my "downs" of 2012, I say good riddance! Wishing you & your family happiness and health in 2013, and looking forward to a breakfast outing someday soon! (Remember, I have a book to deliver)
