Year End Hodgepodge of a Post

So I've been particularly negligent of my blog lately.  It's just that life has been crazy.  So let's wrap up 2011 with a random post here...
  • Being a zero car family pretty much sucks.  Hopefully we'll ring in the new year with a new (to us) vehicle in the driveway... so pray for us tomorrow...  okay, well, pray for us on Monday, as New Year's Eve car shopping didn't pan out
  • Our family has some amazing friends.  And when my big boys end up staying over at someone else's house for a couple days, yet still doing dishes, sorting laundry, entertaining younger kids, shoveling snow... I love that.  
  • I hate not knowing.  That applies to a whole lot of stuff in my life recently.  
  • I had an amazing morning yesterday.  I slept in (which is great too, but not the point here).  When I got up, Thomas, my 11 year old struggling reader, he was... you ready for this?  He was sitting on the couch with his nose in a book.  A real book.  He was reading it.  And laughing.  And then giving me little tidbits about it.  Thank you Read Live.  
  • We had a fantastic review-product filled Christmas.  With very cool products.  I love being a reviewer.
  • I was blessed beyond measure right before Christmas... a package arrived via Santa Claus (aka the UPS Guy) from I don't know for sure who... and it contained a Kindle.  I screamed.  I've cried.  And I love it... It is making my life easier.  It is so small.  And every time I grab it, or even think about it, I feel pretty loved...  thank you, thank you, thank you...
  • I have a whole bunch of amazing virtual friends too.  I cannot imagine my life without you... and you probably know who you are...
  • I don't particularly like power outages.  About 8 hours without power at the house today.  Frustrating.  But hey, it was a good day for it... fairly warm, and the power at the well stayed on so we did have water.
And that is as much as I can handle writing tonight.  

If you are reading this, I appreciate you more than you know... and I wish you an exciting and amazing 2012...

Congratulations on your Kindle. I love mine. :-) I hate not knowing also. I can relate.
