The last one of 2017...

I didn't do a year review this year...
Part of me wanted to, but part of me didn't.

Probably because this year was ROUGH, in soooo many ways.  It was a great year but full of some self-inflicted and not self-inflicted roughness.

The obvious things:
  • Teh German and I got mawwied.  We still like each other.  We've now endured: an overseas vacation, building/buying a house together, moving, keeping things alive (the dogs/the grass), buying a new vehicle, death, hosting events, and planning a wedding.  I'm not sure what the other life events are to test a relationship, but I'm pretty confident at this point we'll be ok.
  • I started school... again.  I'm going for a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science from The Citadel.  Oh yeah, and I'm still working full-time at Company.  And living real life.  
  • Which led me to: I've started taking anti-anxiety medication and it is magical.  I'm not as ragey/stabby/yelly.  Life is now handle-able, where before Teh German life would often cause me to have several breakdowns per month.
  • Phil broke my heartPax is still working on healing it.  Meri was the glue that held me together when everything was falling apart (when Teh German wasn't available/I was mad at him).
  • I had hip surgery.  My body hates me.  The handicapped tag doesn't hurt my feelins nun.

The less obvious things:
+ all the other things that I didn't mention.


  1. I was just thinking the other day about making my own laundry soap. I'm almost out of my current stuff & have been thinking "why the heck not?!"

  2. I liked this recap -- short & sweet and all the highlights. Every year has its ups and downs -- you just want to see more ups. Hope there are more in '18!
