Here it is. My 200th blog. Who would have thought when I started this a year or so ago that I'd get to 200? It's been just as much fun as I thought it would be. I know I don't have a huge readership, but the friends and family who read it can keep up with what's going on in my life and get some pictures of my cute grandchildren into the bargain! What's happened since I began? My little Emily turned one year old, learned to sit up, walk and talk. She's become such a joy in my life. In addition, we've got a brand-new granchild, Noah - only 3 months old but already such a little person. It's so much fun to watch him grow. I've got a new job now. It's different, busy and fun. I like working in an office and being helpful to travelers. I do have to admit I miss working with kids though. My parents have gone through some trying times and come through with flying colors. They were strong throughout the whole thing - it was a blessing to be there for them and help them when they needed me. My son Nicholas welcomed a new person into his life. His girlfriend Kelly moved in with him just after Thanksgiving. The two of them are busy making a new home for themselves. My cousin Michael passed away. As a result, I'm welcoming my sweet Aunt Izzy into my life. It's been a blessing for me to get to know her better and do what I can to help her. It's difficult, because she's a stubborn old lady! Hubby and I have gone on a few new adventures.....Montreal, Sturbridge Village, Stockbridge MA. We've had such a wonderful time together. I've spent lots of time with friends. Going out to eat once a month, getting together for Christmas and visiting NYC together. It's appropriate that my 200th blog should fall at the end of the year. New Year's is a time for reflection, to look back on the year past and acknowledge the changes in your life, and to enjoy the memories of great times with family and friends. Looking forward to the New Year is even more exciting. Who knows what it will bring?
