~whew- it has been such a long time since we have chatted so what a better way to chat than with a blog post? About time...don't you think?
Let's review what has been happening this year. First - I am so glad to say goodbye to 2016...what a year! It was a tough one folks...really tough! I started the year with a tear in my rotator cuff followed with 8 weeks of physical therapy...moved on to be diagnosed with a blood clot in my left leg in August and then in September - diagnosed with Graves Disease. See why I am so happy to kiss 2016 goodbye?
In addition to having health issues - I also felt like I was on the "career roller coaster". I wasn't sure how much longer I would have my position with my current employer but I am thankful to say that I am still holding on...not ready to be put out to pasture yet!
BUT - 2016 was not all that bad. I did some business travel both to Chicago and to Raleigh-Durham in 2016. I have not been back to Chicago since 2013, so it was wonderful to see the city again. HMMMM....now that I think about it...the last 2 trips to Chicago I saw snow. Imagine that....snow in Chicago...what are the chances of that? In October I attended a wedding in the Colorado Rockies *brrrrr* it was a night wedding in the Rockies. While there, I drove over to Estes Park and saw some snow. Again, I ask you - what are the chances of seeing snow in the Colorado Rockies? OOH...and while in Colorado - I drove up to Wyoming...and marked another state off my list of states to visit! I have almost completed my bucket list of seeing all 50 states!
I have some definite goals for 2017 that include visiting at least one new state from my list! I am also going to set a goal of blogging more often. I may not blog each and every day but at least once a week.states!
2016 - You are now just memories some good and some great - 2017 you are my future!
Most importantly - 2017 is going to be a very good year! Here is wishing you and yours a wonderful 2017 as well!
