Not much happened in January. As usual, it was cold. In spite of that, I spent a lot of hours walking along the frozen lake, marveling at how it changed day to day.
FebruaryIn February, after 3 months of waiting, our new couch finally came.
Of course, it was ripped, and I fought with the nasty furniture place for months to get it right.
In March, we celebrated our new 5 year old with Brad Beach at a Wave game.
In April, we had a fabulous vacation in San Diego, visiting Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, the La Jolla seals and spending a great time on Mission beach.
May is always a jam-packed month of fabulousness for me. We spent a great birthday weekend geocaching:
#21 off my list when I took my picture in Chicago's Millennium Ball, and #23 when I ate at Xoco
June was all about fun. We had Tigers softball games
In July, C-man actually got over his water phobia and willingly participated in swimming lessons
In August, I had the chance to spend some time with some dear friends in Northern California.
September brought another year of school. K5, this time
Got the recipe for Kaiserscharmm, and realized it has absolutely no apples in it
As we moved into October, we picked pumpkins (his named "Dirty", mine "Warty")
Trained dragons with friends at an epic party of fun,
In November, we survived chairing the school rummage sale, successfully helping the school earn over $15,000 profit
Jingled through the zoo with my parents to benefit the Arthritis Foundation
In December, I sadly lost an aunt
Christmased with the Pelots,
Fa-la-laaaed at home
2010 wasn't a year of extraordinary and amazing things. In fact, it had more than its fair share of disappointments, not the least of which was pumping my body full of various "medicines" that never seemed to fulfill on any of their promises. But in spite of all that, it was a full year; Full of love, family, and fun.
May our 2011 be as lucky.
