Bloggity blog blog blog

Am I the only one is annoyed that she can't use her gmail email to sign into her blog?! It makes me want to scream!!! Like this:

That said, Hello! So tonight went like this: I was cooking dinner with my newly acquired sister (Zoe). I refer to her as this because she has always wanted an older sister and since I am living with her, she has given me the sister title...funny though, I am old enough to be her mother, legit mother. Okay, so anyways, there we were cooking dinner and I was discussing the office "secret Santa" gifts with her mom, also named Sarah. Sarah thinks she knows who her secret Santa is but I know she is wrong! Zoe was just dying to know who her mom's secret Santa was so I used my wisdom and came up with a brilliant plan! I said "Zoe, if you play with my hair for 3o minutes, I will tell you who your mother's secret Santa is. Zoe replied "I WILL PLAY WITH YOUR HAIR FOR AN HOUR!!!" I am weak so I caved...hehe! And an hour later...I had a Christmas tree coming out of my head...

It's all good though. Having her around is such a treat. She eats my cooking, plays with my hair, lets me win at zingo, sings karaoke with me, and spends Saturday afternoons keeping me company in a variety of ways. Zoe is a blessing!

Just a few things to say: I bought some pretty frickin' awesome Christmas gifts for my peeps today! OMG it is so hard for me not to just hand them out 2 hours ago. I'm bad. I have been knitting up a storm as well. One day I decided I wanted to knit some fingerless gloves and now that is my latest craze. Hope ya'll like fingerless gloves because that is my gift of choice this year. I did try the leg warmers...I got halfway through one and decided my attention span was not sufficient for a project of that caliber. Maybe next year.

Well, time to hit the sack. Today was so fabulous and amazing. xoxo

And then there was one. Literally.

Maybe I should start at the beginning. It appears there has been a lapse in blogging...a lapse that has left plenty of opportunity for life to happen. It has. Summary? You got it. From the beginning:

1. Came back from Alaska. Worked hard. Made money. Loved life.
2. Started last year of school.Pure misery/excitement.
3. Fell in love. Got engaged.
4. Planned wedding. Got married.
5. Graduated college with nursing degree. Got first job. Passed boards first try.
6. Worked. Wifed.
7. Got annulment.
8. Starting over.

Thank goodness I have developed great friendships because I have needed them. Never in my entire life have I ever felt so lonely, scared, betrayed...nothing like a marriage ending to find out who really likes you. I can't walk away without taking some of the blame though. This experience has taught me so much about myself and really opened my eys. I am not perfect. I push people away when I need them the most. I hold a grudge.

So, that is the year in review. The deal is, as hard as it has been, the end is near and I can feel happiness creeping in. A new year is staring in 20 days. A new life. A new age. I have a great job. I have amazing friends. I have a family that has taken me in as their own. Max, my 8 year old roommate, just told me I can not be the most well behaved kid in the house because I am a teenager. I hugged him.

My new family is Jewish. Yesterday we got a Christmas tree...not exactly a traditional Jewish practice. Also not a typical Christmas tree. Yesterday us girls went to Target where I happened upon a stuffed Yoda, positionally prime as tree topper. Its perfect! So the story of the tree: We went out to Rocky Creek Farms. This is a quaint little farm where you can walk around, pick your tree, and actually saw it down yourself! We picked the biggest tree. By biggest I mean, this morning, if there had been a porcupine, couple squirrels, mice, birds, etc, running around the house, I would have not been surprised. Along with Yoda, the tree is decorated with the usual Chanukah accoutrements. Its lovely!
