So, today is the absolute last day of 2007. One thing that I can say about 2007 is that whether things were good or bad, it was not dull. LOLOL.
Al hit the big 1-0. Little A started preschool. Nat turned 7. and Max turned 1. He seems to have packed a lot into his one year and even has developed an evil laugh to use when he is biting people/harassing older siblings/that sort of thing. Not to mention his need to mess with my mouse and stuff. I may have to finally break down and get a laptop in 2008. Use it in the closet or something. I was kind of sad about the end of babyhood for Max. It sort of signals the end of a phase of my life, but I’ve also been coming up with my plans for the next phase of my life. My next act, if you will. I have a few years, but it is coming. I hope that I can keep things balanced. or get things balanced?
I got a lot closer to my fitness goals. Hopefully 08 will mean getting into the maintenance phase, which is a LOT less stressful than the toning up phase. I got a trainer, which has been great for accountability, but whew…
On the bad side, my youngest brother had a stroke, and while he’s doing much better, it WAS a dern STROKE. The doctors said a mild stroke, which is what? something akin to a mild explosion? a mild forest fire? My aunt was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and she died shortly afterward. I’m glad she did not suffer much, but anytime somebody close to me dies I have that whole moment of reflection and stuff. Little A broke her foot, and that was bad, but we are in the process of the final settlement with the hotel’s insurance company. She is completely healed and moved on with life. It’s funny how her injury had a much deeper effect on me (and her father) than it did on her.
I regained hope where music was concerned. I actually purchased CDs… LOLOL. That was a big leap for me. All of my friends and family were instrumental to making the good stuff in 2007 good. I don’t want to forget anybody, so I’m just thankful to them all.
So now I look forward with hope to 2008. Happy New Year.
