Oh Time! Where Have Ye Gone?

How is it possible that it is already the end of 2011? I am truly dumbfounded.

The year has certainly been eventful, featuring, among other things:
  • The girls' first plane experience - to Disneyworld of all places
  • Packing! And moving!
  • A much needed vacation.
  • Kindergarten for LP! And a new day care for AK!
  • Playdates with new friends!
  • Everyone sleeping in until 8:45 on the weekends! People said it would happen eventually, and it really could not have come at a better time.
There are still lots of challenges to keep life interesting:
  • A merger. And the resulting ongoing integration and work irritation.
  • The ongoing struggle to understand and manage the crazy, ductless heating system at our new home.
  • Lots and lots of days off and half days thanks to the fabulous, but bizarre public school calendars.
  • Making new friends. Sticking my toe in the water a little more all of the time, but haven't taken the big plunge and gone on a double date in the new 'hood yet.
Thing I am looking forward to in 2012:
  • My 10 year wedding anniversary
  •  Having the girls' birthday party in our backyard 
  • Enjoying our water access in the summer 
  • Weekend excursions (VT? DC? FL? We'll see!) 
  • Summer vacation 
  • LP experiencing camp for the first time
Is life perfect? No. Will it ever be? Probably not. But is life good? Heck yeah. Cheers to you all!
