With only a couple days left of 2010, I am thinking about all that I want to do, and see. I am so looking forward to this new year. In many ways, 2010 was a difficult one. But despite the things that made it difficult, we were always blessed with the love and support of strong family ties. Before we ring in 2011, here is a recap from memory, of 2010-in the Grover's World.
January found us filled with the anticipation of an exciting year ahead. It began with a bang, and a fantastic cruise we took with our extended family that was a gift from my Mom. We had a wonderful time, and GREAT memories were made!
February began with me scheduling estimates for some much needed work to be done on our house, and deciding what to have done in the most appropriate order.
March came sneaking in and with it, I turned ffff...f...fff.....f..fi....fif......ff..FIFTY!!
April brought more hammering, and messes, but with it, some great improvements to our home.
May.....oh how I wish we could do that one over. May is always a very busy month. Two of our kids birthdays, numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. The warm weather comes, and the outdoor activities begin. Greg goes to Mexico every year for a fishing tournament, and on this ill fated trip he not only came down with kidney stones, but found himself in a Mexican Clinica, with a freak shot for pain that gave him severe nerve damage. May did not end well.
June was spent going from doctor to doctor trying to treat this nerve damage for Greg. Oh, and I got Shingles. Wow....another month bites the dust.
July came, and with it horrific heat! Greg limped home every night, and we were just going one day at a time to get through it.
August came with a week in one of our favorite places with two of our favorite people. We spent a week in Big Bear, fishing, relaxing, and enjoying the company of friends, Ron and Sue.
September arrived and with it, more heat! My garden was slowing down now, and the very first signs of Fall were appearing in the air.
October brought the first real changes in the weather, and finally, some cooler days. And I took a fun reunion trip to Las Vegas with girlfriends, some of whom I had not seen in 30 years!
November zoomed in, and with it the first plans for the upcoming holiday season. It came and went in the blink of an eye!
December....here we are! We shopped, and wrapped, and baked, and attended parties, and ate...oh how we ate!!! We enjoyed the first Christmas that our Grandkids were all three aware of who Santa was, and all of the excitement that "knowing" brings!!! It was a great Christmas! Our family is growing and in good health. (Well, still dealing with Greg's dead leg, but hoping for improvement) We all have so much to be thankful for, and are blessed beyond measure. I am eagerly anticipating 2011. I think it will be a very good year!!!!
Happy New Year to all of you!!!!!!
