A series of unfortunate events.

That sums up 2018.

Of course, it wasn't all bad.  Both kids accomplished lots of great things.  We went to Disney and the beach.

The year began with the flu, then Clint was diagnosed with phantosmia, then cancer, had surgery, then radioactive iodine, spent a week isolation...  then most recently was told he has sleep apnea.

Then there was the cat.  The diabetic cat that cost me a small fortune and I spent months and months doting over sticking her with needles.  At least it paid off because she is in remission!!

Seems like the kids were sickly this year as well, constant runny noses, sore throats, flu, etc.  Many visits to the pediatrician.

I'll just be thankful for insurance coverage and leave it at that. 

It's been a crazy year and hopefully 2019 will be less eventful health wise for all.

It's funny how long ago I couldn't imagine staying home on New Year's Eve, and now I can't imagine being anywhere but home!!  Tonight will be pretty low-key.  Clint bought a little pile of fireworks to appease the kiddos.  Dinner will be ordered via Waitr from our favorite Mexican restaurant.  We'll likely walk over to a neighbor's house to hang out with them for a little while.   So long 2018....

Wishing you all a safe and fun New Year's Eve!

  3. Hope that 2019 will be a better year for all.

    Chinese New Year will be here soon and I was told that 2019 should be a great year for Tigers (those born in 1962, me included!).
