Crazyiness

First, can I just say...I miss you all.

The real run starts today. All the grandchildren will be here and my son and his wife from SoCal.
My husband is picking my parents up and bringing them. We will have a wonderful family time of loving chaos. My favorite time of the year.

The kids will teach us a couple of new games, which I may or may not do well. The 5 Second Rule game is outlawed in my house! That starter starts ticking and my brain goes completely empty, it's more efficient than meditation at clearing the mind!

Then there will be the midnight cookie dough raids.

Rest easy knowing that Michael's question of the month with be rumbling around in my head and I will answer by the 4th.

While thinking about resolutions, it brings to mind the year coming to an end. The year 2015 will go down in the memory book as a hard one though it was filled with many blessings, too. My dad was extremely ill and hospitalized. Scary because he has been the one steadfast person in my life. He bounced back like the champion he is. I learned some BIG life lessons this year.

Some dear friends had it even rougher.

There were some incredible blessings and today is going to be one of them! Can't wait to get it started.

What impact did 2015 have on you? Was it mostly good? Did you feel like you were climbing a steep hill most of the year or barely clinging to a vine? Maybe you were joyfully swinging on the vine or singing "the hills are alive...." on a mountain top?

Big changes? Little changes? Life lessons?

  2. For me, every year has highs and lows. But I really can't complain...as long as I have family, friends and my health.....and gin. I'm good!!! What a nice post. It's was so nice to "meet your acquaintance" here toward the end of the year, and if your not back by then, I wish you all the best in the New Year!

    1. Highs, lows and Hmmmmmmms. I'm glad I've discovered you, too, and have a whole new year to get to know you better.

      Have a great New Year's Eve, and new year!

  3. For me on a personal level 2015 was good, my biggest complaint is that collectively we have not taken care of those who are in need.

    1. Can't agree more. We need more action, or Less Yak and More Shack. Maybe 2016 will be the year of advocacy! Happy New Year.

    1. It is definitely starting out well. Can I just say that I've never been called an 'old bean' before and I like it. It might have to be my new sign-off for the year!

  5. 2015 was a good year for us. A lot of changes, but good changes. Hopefully 2016 is just as smooth. We shall see. Happy New Year! It sounds like chaos over at your place. But wonderful chaos!
