One Last Post

One last post for '07.....

I don't even know where to start! It's been a great year and a tough year and a fun year and a year of growing and changing and challenging ourselves and just experiencing life. And life is about so much more than PRs and races and training runs and Gus and I'm so glad we just had the year we had. How important is another medal, really? I can't believe I'm 30. I can't believe Brent is 30. I can't believe Pippin is 4! I can't believe a year and a half ago we decided to abandon the suburbs and move downtown and really experience life where we should've been all along. I can't believe we re-wired, re-plumbed and basically rebuilt a kitchen from the ground up with our 4 hands. I can't believe this is a house that's starting to actually look like something. I can't believe I have a job I actually LIKE now, after so many years of working for and with some of the most disgusting people you could imagine.

And I can't believe tomorrow in mine and Brent's nine year wedding anniversary. Time flies by just way too fast. But I also can't imagine my life with anyone else, and I am so incredibly thankful.

So, here's to 2007 and I wish you all the best 2008 imaginable. Somehow I think the adventure is just beginning.

And now, it's time to straighten my hair, throw some egg rolls in the pan and head out to a NYE party. Happy New Year!!!!!

It's always nice to start a new year in some sense. The newness is exciting; every moment seems to be so profound until it all builds up...say, around March. You can also leave most of the bad stuff behind.

Sounds like a great year. I'm glad we were able to meet each this year and I still hope we might be neighbors one day.
Happy Anniversary and New Year.

Congratulations on 9 years! That is something to celebrate. And the turning 30 thing too. I seriously cannot believe the work you guys put into that house. It is unbelievable!

Glad to know that you had a challenging but exciting year. And I agree there's more to life than PRs,Gu's, & races. It's all about balance.
