How I Spent the Last Decade

This post could also be called "A Decade in Two Minutes."  I'm not the sort of person who dwells on the past much (I often can't remember further back than the day before yesterday.)  Still, I thought I'd share the events in my life that had the most impact, for good or bad.  Mostly good.

relocation to Southern California
Yes, I also received my Master's degree that year, 
but living in California was definitely the highlight of the decade.

trip to St. Andrews in Scotland

trip to Australia
my soul found its home

Home Remodel - mostly done ourselves;
might also be called "the fourth ring of hell"

the birth of my son, aka "Stitch Bear"

the birth of my daughter, aka "Bug"

Meeting My Posse

1 in 110 kids has autism.  My son is one of those kids.

Because of one of my Posse gals, I got hooked into the Clarity of Night contests.
The contests led to more blogging.
The more blogging led to book reviews.
All of that led to "meeting" all of you, which has enriched my life immeasurably.

Motherhood.  Seriously.  It's a wonder we don't just eat our young.

Keep a lookout for some "Best Of" booklists, coming this weekend to In Search of Giants.  In the meantime, I wish you a bright New Year.  Bonne Annee!
