2005 was a banner yea for me. For the first time in the history of me, I didn't want the year to end. I didn't want to count down at midnight and toast, I liked the year we had. Besides, we are leaving the year Ava was born in.
2005 looked like this for me:
January- started my elementary school counseling placement and my LAST semester of grad school
February- found out I was PREGNANT!
March-passed my counseling boards
April- Interviewed with HP and was asked back to a second interview
May- Second interview, job offer, Anna's adoption, put offer in on this house, budget passed here and I was offically a counselor!!! Had a job before I graduated, and finally, graduated from Grad school in May
June- put both houses on market, sold our house in 1 day, got my certification in the mail
July- A quite month! Packed and waited (not patientally) for our closing date
August-closed on one house we sold, and the house we bought, moved to HP, started my job
September- closed on our income property, started my first school year as a counselor, had Ava, Brian starts new job
October- Nice and quiet, home on maternity leave
November- returned to work after leave and settled into my job
December- First Holidays in our new old house. GREAT way to end 2005
So long 2005, you were a great year to my family. We have been so blessed this past year and I appreciate every moment of it. I can only hope to continue on with good health, and good luck in 2006. Happy New Year.
