Thursday Thirteen: '08 In Review

Oh, here's more sad news: Thursday Thirteen is no more. One of the reasons why is that the maintainer's 7 year old granddaughter has been diagnosed with leukemia. That is such a terrible thing to have to start out the new year with, and my heart and prayers go out to that little girl and her family.

Since I already had this drafted before I found out, I might as well go ahead and post it. So here goes....

Thirteen things that happened in '08, in random order:

1. I bought a house!

2. I moved.

3. My old car died.

4. I bought a used car.

5. My dog died. :( :( :(

6. I got a puppy!

7. I attended a Buffy Sing-a-long. Awesome!

8. I became an aunt x5.

8. I became a great aunt x2.

9. I learned I'm soon to become a great aunt x3.

10. I survived turning 35.

11. I developed some serious acne.

12. I finished the first draft of my novel!

13. I had an exhausting, exhilarating, mostly excellent year. And I hope you did, too.

Yay! Being an aunt is great fun! It seems that is all I am destined to be--not a grandma! :) Perhaps my son will eventually bless me with a grand, but I am not holding my breath!

Happy New Year, and Happy Thursday 13.

You had yourself one heck of a year! Congrats on the novel.

I enjoyed how your list showed the adjustments you made to move on/persevere when a challenge arose! And congrats on that novel! Impressive indeed.

Thanks for visiting our new Thursday Thoughts. We'll do it each week - maybe others will too. T13 was such a fun meme - got us hooked on using our brains for a new post each week. Not to mention all the lovely people we have met out there!
