Year End ~Stuff~


Looking at other blogs this day I am feeling compelled to write about this past year.

But really, ever since January, this year has really, really sucked.

I will put some [all time, which would be 2 years] blog stats down, if you are interested….

Top Referrer: with 847 views [which i think most of them are my sweet dear friend Ashley!]

I am highly ecstatic that the mammogram post gets some top honors, the word needs to get out about how important it is to get a mammogram.

Search Engine Terms:

depressed 3,269
breast cancer 2,718
chesapeake bay retriever 2,570

I’m assuming this means there re a lot of depressed people out there….

Things people clicked on from my site:… 313 278… 219                        187

So, I have to crack up that my buddy, Kevin got lots of clicks!

I have 25 blogs i subscribe to, I did delete a few, but still check in on them.

‘nother subject: Christmas was good. we [or should i say hubby earned the cash, i just kept track of it and didn’t spend it] earned a bit of cash to get ourselves a new bed and a couch for downstairs. The boy bought for himself a PSP.

We spend Christmas eve with my family and Christmas day morning at church and afternoon at Hubbys family.

We drove about 50 miles in that awful snow and he got my car stuck in the driveway, his dad yelling at him and an hour with 4 guys getting it unstuck, while i sat in the house trying not to stress about it. i had to ride for an hour with 4 guys in my car, 2 of them teenagers. you can’t even imagine the conversations….. and my car now stinks. like boy. ewwww.

But it was all good.

Looking forward: getting this boy out of 10th grade and into “Running Start” a program where he gets a high school diploma and 2 year AA degree at the same time. Free! yeah!

continuing to knit [ i have a whole box full of stuff i knit, then don’t know what to do with]

continuing to eat healthy. Trying to make most of my days vegan days.

I am coming up on the 5 year anniversary of my hysterectomy and am seeing a cancer doctor to discuss my course of action, staying on fake estrogen or getting off. [I’m sure my family would want me to stay on.] I’m considering taking this test

Taking a trip to the east again! To visit my favorite pig.

Trying to write shorter posts.

Getting back into Precepts bible study. I miss it so!

And last but not least, striving to live a life worthy and full of gratitude for the One and Only King of Kings.

Blessings on your new year!
