2012 In Review!
Posted Jan 01 2013 11:51pm
As always, at this time of year, I enjoy going through the previous year's posts.
Why, you ask?
Mainly to prove to myself that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger....
and that maintaining your sense of humor is key to living a happy (but not so peaceful) life.
Unfortunately our year got off to a rough start when our beloved kitty passed away on Christmas eve morning 2011. It prompted me to write
how to talk to your kids about the death of a pet
month continued to go downhill from there
Needless to say, I went back on antidepressants and
talked about it in detail
I tried not to let it bother me that
Bella had a more exciting social life than I did
And finally, people, I actually enjoyed a day of shopping with the spawn....only because I suspect
someone spiked the kool-aid
"stop and smell the roses"
kind of day with Garrett and Landon.
This month began with me
mourning the death of a fictional character
from a book I fell in love with.
And for you Bigfoot fans, my kids came up with a
list of facts you never knew about him
Bread Machine Fail #6
poured my heart out
over an incident that happened between Bella and a little girl at the park, in which I was left amazed by my daughter's kind spirit.
And the month ended on yet another sour note, as we
dealt with a flooded family room
as we remodeled our home.
I wrote about
some of my favorite books
and made fun of myself after baking the
ugliest. cake. EVER.
for Garrett and Landon's 5th birthday.
I poured out more of my heart in
The Haunting Inner Dialogue of Every Parent
And then it was
time to come clean
about the real reason I hadn't been blogging as much.
This month began with me giving
my sincere, heartfelt thanks
to a few special people in my life.
I got all sappy in a post in which I wrote about
the things I hope my kids will always remember
Tooth Fairy Fail
....every parent has a similar story to share, I assume.
If there's one thing you should know in life, it's to
never underestimate the power of jumping cats
sound of crickets chirping
in my part of the blogosphere was evident as school let out and summer break began.
Uh...can you still hear the crickets?
Summer vacation is over
! YES!!! I survived an entire 88 days, having my kids home 24/7!
We discovered geocaching....but it wasn't as enjoyable as I thought it would be, as
my kids had to suck the fun out of it.
Lastly, I wrote a list of some of
the sure things in life
Again, I poured my heart out on an extremely difficult topic....
I shared some
funny Facebook quotes
, courtesy of my kids.
I learned to
never say never
...when I fell back on my promise to never make birthday cakes for my kids...like, ever.
I wrote about why
you'll only end up disappointed if you compare your husband to a soap opera character.
sporting a new look
Well, December appears to be an uneventful month since I barely blogged at all. However, those of you who know me, simply know that's not true.
It was bustling full of activity, thanks to my kids, the chaos of the holidays and winter break.
So.....another year under the belt. Whew....
Here's to 2013 being a wonderful year for all of us!!
