2012 – Blog Year in Review

2012-review

Joining Sandra for this fun meme … Actually, I’m a little anxious to revisit my blog posts from my “old” blog (but thankful I saved them over here!!).   I have NO IDEA what is coming out … but HERE GOES:

Post the first sentence of your first blog post of each month. You can also add a favorite picture from each month.

JANUARY

Sandra has redesigned HAPPY HOMEMAKER MONDAY – and I’m joining in today: The weather::: 28 degrees … but feels like 15 degrees

Above is my sink … right now – just a few minutes ago.  Not too bad – considering that not too long ago, things looked like the picture below:

MARCH

So, I haven’t been blogging much because all I am thinking about are (1) some things going on in our lives that I’m not quite yet ready to disclose to the whole entire internet world and the 3 or 4 people who actually READ my blog – but soon, once things are more resolved … and (2) my upcoming trip to Germany, which is coming closer every day (yes, my thoughts tonight – at 12:22 a.m. are profound).

WHAT WE LEARNED FROM “GEORGE”

A few weeks ago, a 40-something year old man from our church died somewhat suddenly.   Well, it wasn’t too shocking as he had been very ill for quite some time – cancer maybe – I never quite understood what all he was dealing with, although my husband had been among the many who had taken him to the doctor or a hospital several times over the last few years.  I’m going to call this man “George” (just came to mind since Miriam is watching – big surprise – Curious George right now!).  If you go to my church, you probably know who I’m talking about – you may have even interacted with him, tried to help him, cared about him, prayed for him, joked and laughed with him, and/or were frustrated by him at one point or another.

If there were such a thing as the lousy blogger award, I’m sure I’d be nominated by now …

Oh, friends, if you have followed my blog for very long, you know I have a love-hate relationship with my husband’s 1996 Buick LeSabre
