How many life-changing events did you have this year?
I’ll spare you the “it was the best of times, it was the worst of times” sentimental summary of 2012. I already
bitched posted about the details, as they occurred.
- Preparing home of 24 years to sell
- Death of my only sibling
- Retiring from my day job
- Diagnosed with a “leaky valve“. (What am I – a car?)
- Moved from a city in the SF Bay Area, to a remote town in the lower Sierra mountains.
If you’re new to Not Pretending, the links above should satisfy any curiosity you may have. And a very hearty welcome from me, BTW 😉
All 5 events occurred between April and July. I don’t remember much of August at all. September-November were a blur. When I began to settle down into my life – the Holidays showed up. Whee! The last of our kids left yesterday. Now I need to gear up to “organization level” energy, but a head-cold is sucking it out of me.
It’s snowing every few days now. This is my fault, as most of you already know. I’ve dreamed of a white Christmas all year, and I definitely got one. I love watching the snow fall. I can’t imagine anyone getting tired of watching it. I can imagine getting tired of shoveling and driving in it, and I’m happy I don’t have to!
I bought a 20.6 pound turkey and 10 pounds of potatoes (sweet and russet), so we can live on Christmas dinner if we get trapped up here a few days. In fact, it is supposed to snow later today. ..
2013 will arrive in 2.5 days, and soon 2012 will only be memories. It seems like I just said that about 2011. Time really does speed up the older you get.
A happy & prosperous New Year to everyone!
