I had my first job interview in years. I would not be selected, but was so very grateful they were interested in me.
We got a new car. My neighbors are still not convinced it qualifies as a “car”.
I went home to give a eulogy at a funeral.
I went home for a wedding.
I spent nearly a month in Europe, visiting friends in Spain, returning to Inverness for a boat ride and being continuously awe-struck by Shetland Island. I also invited myself to stay at another Blogger’s flat in London.
Charlotte hosted the Democratic National Convention and Jon Stewart came to town.
I voted for President Obama and was happy with his re-election, though it re-ignited the racist, ugly underbelly my fractured country tries to ignore. He had his heart broken and desperately tried to help us heal.
I did not complete a single item on my Life List.
My goals for 2013 include reading one book a week (and reviving my pathetic book blog), being kinder to others and myself and seriously plan our escape from Charlotte; one that is practical and not based on knee-jerk emotions and festering anger.
Thank you all for another year. And seeing as this is my 500th post, I wish I could pour Champagne over each and every one of your lovely faces.
