It's New Years Eve here in Alaska. Only a few hours left of 2008. I've spent the majority of my day trying to build a more user friendly web page for ALCQ. I've had only minor success. I was able to add a calendar to the blog, & that made me happy.
I should probably reflect on this past year. Overall, I would say it was pretty good. I got to travel to Michigan twice in 2008. Spent my sister Em's 60th birthday with her in February. Spent more time with my brother & new sister-in-law Linda. I got to know & love her even better.
In September I was able to spend more time with both of my sisters & my Dad, in between teaching classes. That was a lot of fun. October I traveled to Salem to spend time with my dear friend Ilene after her heart surgery. I actually lived with Ilene & her husband Stu for a brief time, before I married my DH. They are like family.
I managed to lose some weight before surgery, (new knee), then gain some back during this holiday season! Back to work on that battlefront!
I am thankful for every day, every moment I breathe. For my children, & grand-children. For all my family & friends. For their health, & safety. I am also thankful for all of you out there who reach out & make contact. Who share your thoughts, & ideas, & kind wishes.
I'm heading off to our New Year Party at the Meyn's house. See you all next year!
Have the happiest, healthiest, & safest of New Years!
Live Like it's Heaven on Earth
