It seems like a year goes by so fast. I cannot believe we are going into 2016 already. Where did 2015 go? I wanted to reflect through the memories of 2015 before I give in and move on.
The memories I have from 2015 are a mixture of ones that involve my career, my family and friends.
I am such a computer illiterate person but decided to start a grandparent blog. I have watched a million videos and taught myself a lot of things but I have so much more to learn. Although, I have not mastered doing my blog, I have met some wonderful people doing this. I enjoy reading the other grandparent blogs and talking with the people that write them.
In February I retired as an RN. I had worked for 43 years and just wanted to enjoy some time doing other things. I have had more free time to attend my grandchildren’s activities and help run them to Dr appointments or pick them up from school.
Life is wonderful after retirement and I recommend it to everyone! Here is the post I did on mine.
My husband was going to turn 60 in May so for the past 2 years I had been working on planning him a big party at a lake resort that we love to go to. I had never even designed invitations, let alone planned a party that seemed like a wedding, but was pleased with the end result. This was so much fun. Here is the post I did on the party.
In July, my father-in-law passed away and was missed a lot this year. My husband and his brothers got together and relived the memories they had of him and the years they spent together at their hunting cabin.
I love to cook and bake and enter recipe contests. I did not really enter any contests this year but have some recipes on here that I have created. See my Recipe Index at top of blog for a few of them.
I started doing cooking classes for my grandchildren and that was a fun experience. Here is a post I did on that. and Here.
On December 28th my husband had a Total Shoulder Replacement so we will be spending the next few months doing rehab and healing from this.
As I reflect on 2015, I did have a wonderful year with my family and friends.
I usually set the same goals each year and I fail at the same ones. I need to lose some weight and increase my exercise program (doing any is an increase), I want to improve my blog, enter some recipe contests again, and get my house better organized.
The most important goal is to spend more time with my family and those I love.
I want to live each day to its fullest and to appreciate the blessings from God.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME TODAY AND HAPPY NEW YEAR
