I’d like to write something meaningful this second-to-last day of 2010, but nothing comes to mind. What that says about me, I’d rather not think about.
A lot has happened this past year.
My husband and I spent two months with his family in New Zealand. Why we haven’t moved there is a topic for another post. Suffice to say we had an awesome time with family.
We finished the remodel on our house – TEN years after we started the project. Thought the day would never come, but it finally did. Of course, as soon as we finished the house, we left it.
I got a job in a city we know nothing about and that is a four-hour drive away from the town we got married in.
I got a job. That bears repeating as I haven’t had a job that required I leave the house in over nine years. What a shock to the system! Not only do I have to navigate an entirely new city, but I have to actually get dressed. Every day. With different clothes! Don’t get me started on office politics…
I finished the first draft of my novel – Devil’s Blood.
Wow. That’s seems like a lot, but I feel as if we’ve missed the boat. Or, maybe we got on a boat we shouldn’t have. I still have visions of white sands, blue water, and green hillsides…we should have stayed in New Zealand…
