It’s about to be 2-OO-6 and I just want to say that each and every one of you who take the time to read my thoughts and drop me a comment here and there make my day, every day. This year has not been my most favorite for reasons I’d prefer to shove in a deep, dark hole, but one very spectacular thing happened: I made friends all across the country, and even a casual drive-by friend or two across the ponds, despite my realization that it is very difficult to make friends outside of school. I’ve been honored to be there to share so many important moments of your life with all of you. The best, the worst, it’s all good because you let me share your experiences. Not at all a comprehensive list, here are some of the very special moments you shared with me that left a mark:
- Moving in together with your sweetie
Becoming an aunt
Getting a divorce from a man who wasn’t worth your time
The pink elephant acknowledged
Trying for babies
Adopting furry kids
The Busty Nuns – Sister Mary Michael, Sister Mary Kate, and their blinged bibles
Going to the ER, but coming out the other end (hehe) just fine
O-C-D and other mental excitednessesses
Getting a new car (for better or for worse)
A great day
A shitty day
Missing a soldier serving our country
Missing a loved one who passed away
The shock of that one moment in time that took someone near and dear away
Getting back your test results
Moving on with your life, despite life trying its hardest to keep you down
Eating too much cheese
Eating too much chocolate
Doing memes, tagged or otherwise
Making a fabulous meal, only to be hardly touched by the evil MIL

I can’t end on a low note, so: Getting flowers, cards, gifts, or hugs from your favoritest person
Who knows when each of us will drop blogland for our physical lives, but I will be forever changed for the better by the time I have spent with you. Rock on, my blog friends.
