Happy New Year!

Despite then lack of postings, 2011 was a good year. A good solid year.

We survived the hormonal surge of our oldest child and accepted that yes, he is getting older and going to be in HIGH SCHOOL(!). We pieced together a healthy summer of cottaging and chilling around the house/pool. We started off the school year with lots of hockey (forget schoolwork) for the youngest two.

I started a new job at The Village Idiot and worked lots of hours, in the store and at home daydreaming about what was going to happen. I love working with an Arbour and Em's Dad has been great to work for. It's been so much fun trying to figure out what to bring in to the storeand the power to buy things has been ego-boosting. (thanks Pat!)

Mike went back to school to become a Master Electrician, and although our bank account suffered with the cost of it once he got his test results it was well worth it. No initial financial gain, but we know it is just around the corner.

Life has been good for us in 2011. I'm grateful. And now, 2012 is overflowing with potential. I'm SO EXCITED with what may happen and I vow that I will try and blog a little more often!

And so, HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone. Cheers to a bright & shiny 2012!!
