2012. So, far, it feels a lot like 2011. Funny how that happens.
And yet, as I look back I see how much has happened over the course of the year.
In 2011, for the first time, I walked with family and friends in the Bay Area Walk Now for Autism Speaks, I went to BlogHer and wrote a novel for NaNoWriMo.
Moe turned 4 and Jelly turned 2.
We faced many challenges with Moe, especially around sleep and aggression. Moe also got his first stitches.
I lost a friend to cancer.
What will this year bring? Will this be the year Moe learns to speak? Will this be the year we are able to travel to visit family? Will this be the year both kids will be potty trained? Will this be the year we sell our house? Will this be the year I stick to some kind of exercise routine?
And if none of those things happen, will this be the year I am able to find peace and acceptance of where we are, no matter what?
Happy new year to all of you! Thank you for reading this blog, sharing your lives, advice and support.
