May Your New Year be Boring!

I'm celebrating the New Year with a sigh of relief. I am SO happy to see the backside of 2011 going out the door. To briefly review the debacle that was 2011:
  • I started the year with mono and a fibromyalgia flare.
  • I ended May with a  nasty car accident; I had a head injury and a broken collarbone.
  • John's cancer was found in June; he had lots of hospitalizations and chemotherapy.
On the good side:
  • We're both alive (which we have no business being), to the consternation of our doctors.
  • John has kept his job and our health insurance.
  • I've come out of retirement, and have a job that I love.
  • We've added a new member to the family: Jethro the dog.
To sum up:
  • As a dear friend once said, normal moved and left no forwarding address.
  • We haven't been bored.
  • It could have been worse.
  • I don't want to take one of those tests that tells how stressful your year was.
So I wish you all the best thing I can think of - a very, very boring 2012!

  1. Who would have ever thought one would pray for "boring" and "uneventful"?

    But I'm with you. Farewell to 2011 and all its drama. Here's to 2012. And may whatever it brings come with an appropriate measure of God's grace...
