2015, what can I say. It started out real strong, my early schedule (off on weekends, and by 12:30 week days) combined with my BFF being self employed meant I spent a lot of the year hanging out and swimming with her. I also spent a lot of time stressing about work. The summer was my best ever, leading into a fall full of mishaps and disappointments and being suddenly unemployed. Vehicles breaking down, uncertainty about the future, health problem after health problem for the dogs.
I like looking to the new year as a starting point. 2016 will be better for me. Good lookin' out 2015, I was ready for you to be over.


  1. You did a heck of a lot in 2015! :D Sorry it ended on a kind of a bum note (job stuff, etc) but I'm sending good vibes that 2016 will be even better for ya and the pups! Happy New Year!

  2. You kinda did have an awesome year despite all the madness that started in the fall! I'm so glad I got to be a part of it and along for the ride!
