Should Old Aquaintence Be Forgot....

Well, 2005 is rapidly drawing to a close. And as customary to this time of year, I have spent some moments recently reflecting on the past 364 days of my are some highlights, and things I have discovered in 2005...

I have learned to appreciate my family more than I knew how. After moving back to New England this year, I rememebr why I love and sometimes cannot stand them. But I would rather be near them than far away.

J.K. Rowling is a genius! Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was her best book yet. I eagerly anticipate 2006, as she has stated herself that she will begin Book 7.

My children have grown and changed so much this year, it's unbeliveable. They are turning into good kids, with great personalities. Even if I do have hard times with them, I am so glad they are mine. I think I may be doing this Mommy thign right afterall. They make me proud.

I will never underestimate my husband again when it comes to anniversary gifts. His present to me after 7 years of marriage BLEW ME AWAY. He is my rock. He is my lover. He is my best friend. Even if he does piss me off sometimes, I wouldn't be able to make it through life without him.

Thanks to the internet, I have been able to reconnect with friends I never thought I would again. Jen, Sonja and Nessa, especially. I am so greatful for the friendships I have rediscovered this year. And I look forward to 2006 when I get to meet Jen and be Nessa's Matron of Honor for her wedding.

I have aged well, apperntly. My 10 year reunion has taught me that. I also must look better than I thought I do, because I got many compliments, and I also know some guys have been checking me out lately hehe!

My love of Theatre was rekindled this fall. Being in Groton Regional Theatre let me meet some great people, some of whom I keep in contact with still -- right Levine? *wink*

Mvoing from Florida to CT was an adventure. Especially packed up in my little sedan with me, 2 kids, and a cat. I hope I never have to do it again.

Surgery sucks. Especially when you have a health issue that has the possibility of making your life hell. But the drugs for recovery ROCK. And so does finding out your surgery solved your problem!

I have seen some good movies this year. I have seen some GREAT movies this year. I have watched some movies that were total crap. But overall, Movies of the year have been very entertaining.

Celebrities had it rough this year: bad incidents with paparazzi, separations, divorce, cheating, etc. A lot of bad things happened to these people. I guess it's good I am not famous afterall....

Blogging is a great way to meet people all over the world. I am so glad Jeopardygirl inspired me to make my own. I have made some good friends, and met odd, interesting and even jerky people. But this whole experience has been great, and I am happy to continue on.

And now, on to 2006!

I was reading an article on J.K. Rowland the other day and she said that she was ready for the new year and sitting down writing the final Harry Potter Book. I am ready to see how it all comes out but I will hate to see the story end.
