This is the end, my friends.
I know no one likes to read about other people’s illnesses, so I’ll spare you the details from the last few days. Today we were all at 90% (or so), so we actually got some stuff accomplished around the house. Most noticeably, I got to cross off one more item on our “to do” list on the fridge thanks to Jennifer’s diligence with one project this afternoon. She also made significant headway on another item on the list. Our Saturn also got its much-needed and much-delayed oil change today and, despite the cold, I took the kids to the park and we bought snacks at the local Super America (where I fortuitously found a penny, messing up much of what I wrote earlier). That was Isla’s first time leaving the house in eight days! This evening, I left town for the first time since last Tuesday to attend a New Year’s Eve party. And, well, like a typical family with a seven- and a two-year old, we only lasted until about 9:30. So there you have it…that’s how we spent the last ~0.3% of 2012.
Above: Isla barely getting enough blood to her cheeks to keep them alive.
I’m pretty sure I’ll keep blogging here…just not gonna do it every day. My hope is that I spend about an hour thinking about my blog and then another hour actually writing the blog each week, instead of zero minutes thinking about it, and about four or five hours writing it each week (like I do now). My hope is that I’ll both have more time for other endeavors and improve the content of what’s here. Of course, that’s all predicated on the idea that people read this. So, if you do read this, even only occasionally, please leave a comment. It gives me the encouragement to continue.
Thanks for reading. See you in 2013.
