This Time of Year
Another year has come and gone. Highs and lows were all included.
A brief recap is here and not inclusive of everything that happened. That's what the archive of this blog is for.
Sure, while the high point might have been that we got married, I don't think that it should overshadow the toffee covered pretzel Denton, Becky and I shared the night before the nuptials. Let's try to keep things in perspective people.
But at the first of the year, I quit my job and took a new one a day later - no break at all. Silly me. That's just how I roll.
Clearly the low point was losing Tovah. I'm still mourning. But Sophie has been so incredibly affectionate - even more so than usual, so that helps. No decision on whether to go back to a two kitty household.
Job is fine. Family is status quo. Friends are great, though one had a "slight" health scare over the summer - which I did not go into. Things are better. House is a work in progress, but it is a 100 year old house - it will always be a work in progress. Ditto with my 100 year old body.
We had few travels: Montreal, New York and DC. That's it. Unless you count my work travel. I'm not. We are vowing to incorporate more personal travel in the upcoming year. Where? We have ideas, but nothing solid.
The blog had its highs and lows too. The low being my stupid hosting provider and their "upgrades". You know the ones that kept me unviewable for a week or so. The one that lost all my previous post pictures which I still need to get back. But on the high side, I have some great followers and a good blogroll and my readership continues to grow. ....so there's that. Thank you all for that.
2010, overall, was an ok year. Stellar? Probably not, but it wasn't the pits either. I can't say I'm glad it's over as it wasn't that kind of year. However, I can't stop time marching on, so 2011 starts tomorrow. So be it.
I hope you all had a good year and are looking forward to the next. I'll be here...and most likely on a daily basis.
Enjoy your new year's eve. Be safe. It's amateur night out there. I'm staying in.
