looking back on the last year

2007... looking back So I've only been meaning to write a review of 2007 for a couple weeks now... but I'm slow and easily distracted :::shrug::: whatcha ya going to do about it. 2007 started out with a new addition to the family. Little Liam.. or not-so-little Liam depending on how you look at it seeing as how he was nearly 11lbs when he was born, and now, 10.5 months later wighs in at over 25! then a few months after that I went full-time at UMass... to a benefited position doing the same stuff and stuff around the lab.
I had a great summer with real estate business and by fall I was wiped out. At the same time I decided to leave the Century 21 office in Northampton b/c I didn't agree with my broker's businesses practices and switched to an office down the street from my house, where I'm much happier and can work at my own pace, WHEN I want to. (and I'm not forced to do open houses all the friggin' time) but because of the holidays most of my clients went dormant, so now I have to contact them and check in...
The holidays went well, and we even got down to visit with my family back home! man I miss that place.. I wish it wasn't so expensive to stay there, because I'd like to visit for more than 1 day. I hadn't seen my sister in over a year nor had we met each of our babies! It's funny how life treates you sometimes.. I grew up in a house with no guys... no dad no brothers. and now it appears as though my sister and I have come across a couple of men who can only reproduce more men. lol, and now us ladies are outnumbered!

2008 is going okay so far, except for first night where jay and I were sick throwing up and such for no good reason.

my resolution? to have a cleaner home... ha.. crazy I know, but i can try, right

That was my year, in a nutshell


  1. Hmmm, The best way to get the house cleaner is to get the kids to do the chores, a few years down the road would be easier for that- ("allowance") not that you shouldn't try!
    Glad you finally got in a visit. Wish I had a free hotel for you. Someday-
    At least you had good news from the year! Hope the close goes better than the openning- Prob it was that norovirus.

  2. Life is amazing.

    Remember when you were young and the most important thing in your life was, 'Do I look good in my skinny jeans?'

    My goal is to strive for an exuberant life!
