2007 A Quick Review

Instead of focusing on losses this year, after all you all know how much I love my Dad and I think about him every day and miss him so much it hurts bad sometimes, I want to focus on what I gained this year!

  • Getting to meet some of the most wonderful little people I’ve ever known. All of the little waddlers were supposed to be out today, so I was trying not to think about needing my waddler fix. I walked into the toddler room, and there was one of the little waddlers! She was as happy to see me as I was to see her!

This is a photo I had of her taken on Dec 20th.

To quote Susan “cuteness dripping off the walls” for sure!!

  • Being able to get out in the woods in person with one my most favorite nature educators, birder extraordinare, and all around great guy Mon@rch!

  • Continued and new blog friendships!
  • Continued and new in person friendships!
  • A bigger than before attitude of gratitude.
  • More patience with people, even though I still don’t suffer fools too easily.
  • A wonderful trip to Arizona with my Mom.

  • Meeting my Mom’s California cousins, one for the first time, the other one for the second time.

Now that Arizona is associated with my Dad’s passing, we’re planning a trip abroad. I’ve never been abroad, so this will be interesting. Certain to be good for blog fodder! I mean, we all know it’s all about the blog after all!

I know I’ve gained much more this year, but these are top on my brain right now.

Happy New Year everyone!

    Love ya, sugar.

    Trip abroad: You are NOT a broad. You are a LADY.

    Seriously….if you can swing it, I recommend Scotland. It’s beautiful and chilly and old and awesome.

    I can’t wait to meet Tom of Monarch, too. Sometime this year, for sure. I’m excited for you that you will be going abroad. I’ve never been there, either, and it will be fun to follow your trip via your blog. Good luck in this new year.

    Thank you Linda! I don’t know where exactly we’re going yet, but we’ve got lots of books and pamphlets to look at!
