Dear 2010, You Havent Seen The Last Of Me

"Man can only become what he can consciously imagine."
Dan Rudhyer
Dear 2010, I have so loathed you. Nearly as much as 2008 and more than 2009. I am so happy to say Adios`.

I KNOW that 2011 will bring its own adventures, and the journey will continue for me God willing, so I am ready. Bring it!
As many of you know, I save blogabouts for THEE BOOK.. you know.. when I’m old and wearing purple. So here is a recap of this bloody year.:

• Had my brother and sis in law in from Alaska
• Ended the visit abruptly when Mom fell ill
• Stayed with my Sis & family to care for Mom for the last month of her life
• Laid our Mother to rest.
• Came back to Pismo to begin piecing my world back together (again)

  • Got a new cool car.. my beloved tank
  • Quilted 3, count em 3 show quilts
  • Made arrangements for kids to come and stay in our home.
  • Watched the entire season of LOST on DVD and was mesmerized
  • I swatted my baby grand girl, and it still hurts. ( me)
  • Won a ribbon for a quilt Mid State Fair
  • Took a HOT trip to Palm Springs to watch my Grand Girl compete in a beauty contest
  • Got hooked on Bejewelled on Facebook
  • Got hooked on The Sopranos, via net flicks
  • Rented out rooms to tenants and became a half ass B & B ( again)
  • Separated from my Walt to help heal each other (?)
  • Was given a human angel, I think from Mom
  • Left one home on the central coast, to come back to another on central valley
  • Began treatment with 4th Shrink, finally one thats working!! ( without meds!!!)
  • Became friends with a customer and will win more ribbons!
  • Won ANOTHER ribbon at Pacific International Quilt Festival
  • Had a health scare of a breast cancerous tumor (benign)
  • Quilted 2 more show quilts (cross fingers)
  • Kept up with blogabouts, no matter the trauma I go through
  • Went to visit my soul sista Ronda in Oregon, and I didn’t discover QVC. Noooo I didnt!
  • Had the ::hands down::: weirdest holidays EVER in my life.
  • Got sick, but not TOO sick like 2008/9 thanks to Zicam and Airbourne.. ( or straight up pissiness)
  • Experienced Christmas through the community outreach of others for distant kids.
  • (space saved for NYE
In summary,the winds of change blew strong... waves broke the shore with a fury as the footprints in the sand washed away. :::WAV:::
Years End Theme Song is.................. drum roll please..................

I hope you have a wonderful 2011, Gina. Sounds like you've had your share of strife this year. I'm with you on being ready to cast away 2010. Seems like a lot of people are!
