It has admittedly been a tough year for me in my personal life and in the life of our country but I thought I’d end this year with my highlights.
[+] The Warriors had the best record in the NBA and made it to the NBA Championships AGAIN!!!
[+] CLEVELAND LOST THE WORLD SERIES!!! (For those who aren’t aware, hating on Ohio sports teams is one of my core values after living in central Ohio for 2 1/2 years and dealing with Ohio sports fans hating on my teams.) My Warriors have been avenged!!!
[+] The Cubs had one of the biggest gatherings in human history for their victory parade. Not to mention, the Cubs winning the Series is so much of a BETTER ending than it would be if Cleveland had won because the Cubs have had the longer drought and were a much better team.
[+] I achieved one of my dreams of living in Washington when I moved up here in June 2016.
[+] Hillary Clinton was the first female to win the nomination of a major political party and won the popular vote.
[+] I was able to go back to school this fall, discovered a deep love of Accounting, and had a 4.0 for my first quarter!
[+] My Huskies made it to the semi-final game against Alabama!
[+] My Giants made it to the play-offs.
[+] THE DODGERS SUCKED IN THE NLCS!!!!
[+] MY NINERS HAVE A BETTER RECORD THAN THE CLEVELAND BROWNS! (Granted, they have the second worst record in the NFL but at least they’re better than the Browns.)
[+] I rocked the Write 31 Days challenge!
[+] I got a Fitbit (finally!!!!) and won a few challenges.
[+] I got to introduce my little beach boy to snow!
[+] I discovered that my school district here in Washington had a YUGE team ready to work with Daniel when we arrived. TWELVE PEOPLE were at the IEP meeting SPECIFICALLY for Daniel. His PT and OT were at his parent-teacher conference and are positively smitten with my little monster. 🙂
[+] I joined a FABULOUS parish up here. I’m seriously still being sustained by the joy from the Christ Mass on Christmas Eve night.
[+] Daniel WILLINGLY takes his ADHD meds without us having to restrain him. He just asked for peanut butter and meds. 🙂 (Granted, he asked for M&M’s two seconds after getting his meds but I’ll allow that.)
I’m looking forward to a FABULOUS 2017!
