Happy 2011!

I wish you all a happy, health and prosperous 2011 and I am very happy to say "f-off 2010!" It was not a year I will look back on with any kind of fondness. The Bobster was in the hospital 5 times this past year and I injured my back. I like to think I deal well with stress but sometimes it just gets to be too much so I am very thankful for my mom, sister and the rest of my family who help when called. Aunt Rosalie is a godsend and my friends keep me sane by letting me dump on them and making sure my alcohol levels are maintained at a healthy level :D

We did have a nice little ray of sunshine at the end of the year when the Bobster's VA benefits finally materialized after a long 4 year appeal. Not only does he now get a monthly check, they gave us a settlement that helped pay off all the little dangling medical bills we had. Whew.

My wish for 2011 is that Bob stays as healthy as he is now and we get to go on a vacation. He hasn't been up to any travel lately but he is feeling much more "normal" so we are going to plan a trip to Florida for the spring, fingers crossed.

Just as a little FYI... I finally bought a new camera! I am pretty excited to be able to take pictures with something other than my iPhone. I want to learn to edit them a bit and may take a photography class. Speaking of classes, I am going to take Cake Decorating 101. If you know me at all you know I am not the most patient person so trying to decorate a cake or cupcakes makes me nuts. I figure if I take a class it might help...maybe not...but I have always been optimistic!

I know 2011 is going to be a good year for all of us.
