Exit 2005

2005 was the year of "Who Would Have Thought?!" Aside from some strange goings on in my family, the rest of the world had some mighty strange occurrences.

Who will forget the Freakiest of Them All, the pajama wearing court attending Michael Jackson (guilty as all sin in my books!) The star I used to think was hot, Tom Cruise, now a self professed psychology expert and now extrememly high on the "Ewwwwww" factor. May 2006 be free of these two on every magazine cover, please!!!!

There was a lot of sadness. The tsumami and New Orleans. In my city the death of two cute kids to a house fire purposely set to scare the mother. Terrorist bombings around the world. The recnet murder of an innocent teenager in Toronto who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I pray that the next year will not have so much sadness.

Good things for us were a year of many travels. Mendocino in the Spring, Palm Springs in the Summer, Newport Beach and St. Croix, USVI in the Fall. Our huge yard reconstruction was finally completed and now we have the most gorgeous retaining wall and back yard in the neighborhood (part 2 this Spring). My kids are great and such smart and interesting individuals. I am always proud of them. My husband is kind and understanding - how can I not love the man!!!

May 2006 hold good surprises for everyone, enough money to make you happy, the love and support of friends and family, and patience to get through the inevitable bs that always occurs.

A Happy New Year to All!!!!
