Wow ... what a year my family has had. My brother moved back into the area, he got engaged then married, now he's expecting twins. My dad's business is going so well that he's gonna have to hire more workers just to be able to keep up with the demand for his product. My baby brother moved to the area, cause a bunch of trouble between dad & I then left the area. (he's moving back sometime this month with a new g/f). My MIL threatened to move in with us 2 separate times ... thankfully she's is back living with her sister. I think it's best she stays there for everyones sake. In March I started this graphics journal which became so popular that some of my friends started telling me that I was on the top ten most read journals. Pretty cool considering I didn't want to share my work for fear no one would like what I created. I broke down & invited my mother here for Christmas which went surprisingly well & met my neice after being away from her for 6 years. I gained weight ... lost weight ... then gained it all back. I broke my foot, broke my camera ... lost my mind a couple of times. I made many J-land friends (some of you feel like family) that I know I will keep forever.
In retrospect ... even though I had a few bad days the good ones far out weighed the bad. Thank you for spending the year with me. I look forward to sharing another year with you. Many hugs. Emmi
