Here we go again Year In Review!
I do it in words (the first sentence of the first post of each month) and in pictures (a favorite posted photo from each month) — the two are not necessarily related.
Everyone seems to be where they want to be, or are on their way, or are making plans.
My new insurance cards came in the mail last week, along with the little booklet of benefits.
It looks like there might be 8 of us (so far) taking the leap!
I can't believe how long it's been since I've done an "Unraveled Wednesday" post!
Well, April flew right on by, didn't it?
I have purchased books and donated money.
For months, I've had this refrain/response popping into my head on the regular: I'm not doing it right.
This is not a very exciting photo, but Ann sent it last night from Lima!
It is all Ducky a lot of the time (lately)!
I'm worn out.
In which we embark on the TWELFTH year of NaBloPoMo-ing!
[I'm going to learn to bake a cake!] Ha. And not just any cake… Christmas Cake!
In August, Kate & I bought a travel trailer and started renovating & updating. Shortly thereafter, Kate adopted an adorable rescue terrier that she called McGregor. Even in this weird year — or perhaps because of this weird year — things/situations sometimes quickly change. Kate learned that the UK was once again accepting visa applications and moving to the UK has been a goal for a long time. After some soul searching and consideration of future wants/needs, along with research into cost/logistics of moving abroad with a dog, and keeping the long-term well-being of McGregor foremost, she decided to return him… where he was quickly adopted again because, OMG, what a sweet & smart dog he is (says someone who is not a dog person)… and hopefully he's found a stable forever home. Meanwhile, Kate has been approved by Arts Council England to apply for the Global Talent Visa, and if all goes as planned, she'll be headed to the UK/Scotland in spring… like March!! (Unless things change, because good god…) I know that someday she'll have a dog again — when it fits. As will Maddy, who is having to settle for chickens right now due neighborhood/rental rules at their current residence. Heh.
I know I say it every year: I can't quite believe the year is almost over!
This year, like no other before if: I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THIS YEAR IS OVER!!! BURN!
