December 15 – 5 Minutes Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010.
So this is a lot like writing one of those year end re-cap letters that people put in their Christmas cards. What would I most like to remember from 2010? To be honest, I wouldn’t want to forget a single moment. But here is a brief summary, in photo form:
We had a few impromptu snow days together, early in the year. (sound familiar?)
I watched my brother graduate (again) from the Firefighter's Academy at the top of his class.
We said farewell to the Silver Bullet (and couldn't be happier about it!)
I spent the last of the halcyon days of playgroups, picnics and being a stay at home Mom with the last of my babies.
Watched my oldest run and win his first race (1 mile). And I cried like a baby when he crossed the finish line. It meant so much more just to see him smile.
Took a memorable road trip to N.C. and then spent several days recovering from acting like a 20 year old.
Gave my lucky bamboo a home in my new office.
And watched John take over my job as daytime caregiver, taxi driver and swimming pool lifeguard.
We spent a lot of hours at the park, watching Hank play ball. By far, some of the most fun I've had as a parent.
In a fit of extreme decluttering, we put almost our entire living room on the driveway and sold every piece.
You didn't think I could do a blog post without mentioning my braces, did you?
Spent a weekend honky-tonkin' in Nashville and re-learning how to relax
And ended up right back where we started--in the snow. But, happily, in the snow together. 🙂
