Finally, the end of 2011 - My reflections

Hi guys,

Well here it is, the last Friday of 2011.  Where did the time go?  For some reason, this year went by really fast and not that I'm complaining or anything, it just went by fast.   The other night, when I couldn't sleep again, I was thinking about what went on during 2011 and I'm amazed at how much stuff went on.  For example:

January - We got a crap load of snow.  Not weird by Wisconsin standards, but none the less, we got snow.

Feb - I had to enroll Nichole ONE LAST TIME FOR HER SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL. sigh..where did that time go??

March - Nathan turned 14 and Sam turned 11.  Again, where did those cute babies I brought home from the hospital go??  They are growing up so damn fast.  And yes Nathan towers over me now and Sam is not that far behind him... 

April, May and June - Can't remember much of those months.  I"m almost certain that things happened, but cannot remember for the life of me..

July - Renewed Nichole's temporary driving permit ONE LAST TIME!!   Found an old friend and became friends again after about 20 years of not seeing each other.  Best part of the year in my book!!! 

August - Paid for those High School fees for Nichole one last time and had her Senior Pictures taken. 

September - coming to grips and the reality that my marriage is over and starting the paperwork process to officially end it.   Nichole gets her driver's license on the first try (barely..haa haa)

October - Nichole turns 18!!!  I filed paperwork with the court system to end my marriage. 

November - Not much happening here.. 

December - No one in the house wants to celebrate Christmas due to all the personal issues going on. So we don't. No biggie in my book.  There will always be next year.

I do hope that 2012 brings better news for me and my kids.  I'll let you guys in on the journey as we take it. For those of you who still read this blog, I thank you so much.  It means a lot to me. 

Wishing you all a great start to the New Year.

Yeah I know this year has been really rough for the both of us....!
I KNOW next year HAS GOT to be much better. Not going to think that it is going to be bad because anything is better than 2011.

Love you!
