2013 a Year to remember...

So many things have happened over this past year, some good and some really good... Some things I wrote about and some I shouted from the roof tops...

Some of my favorites included Celebrating my Mom's 70th Birthday extravaganza... My bestie's baby sister's wedding... Getting my 2nd TA and then getting statused...

Some things I didn't talk about like I think maybe I should, like getting squished for the first time... Last month I decided that now that I am 40, I needed to take a step in honor of my cousin Jana and my Core Sister and get my first ever mammogram... Was I nervous? Yes... Had I heard it was painful? Yes... But I knew what I had to do to make sure my breasts were healthy...

For those of you that have no idea what an exam is like. You put on a dressing gown and other than that gown you are unclothed from the waist up... There is this huge machine you stand in front of and it has two panels. The technician places one of your breasts on the plate and adjusts i…

MyHolidayBucketList: Write and mail a letter to Santa... Have an Advent Calendar (preferably from Germany) Go and have my picture taken with Santa Claus String Popcorn (I've never done it) Go see the Christmas Lights at Fort Wilderness See the Candle Light Procession See it Snoap in Celebration See the Castle Lighting (haven't seen it in a few years) See the Osbourne Family Christmas Lights Make handmade Christmas cards Not skip over Thanksgiving decorating (Yes, there is a holiday between Halloween and Christmas) Be thankful...

Well, things are rolling along smoothly with my Holiday Bucket list... A few more of the little gems should be coming off by weeks end...

This has been a very different kick off to the Holiday season... Usually by the first we have all of our house decorated but sadly things have been chaotic and I haven't gotten much accomplished on the interior while Mom is just rolling along with the exterior...

I want to decorate, but because we have so many issues…
