Happy New Year Everyone!
2011 was a year of many ups and downs.
I spent the first 6 months unemployed. Then I got a great job with a local IT company. The pay wasn’t as much as I made before, but I am really happy with the working conditions.
In February, we found out we were going to have a baby. We had been trying for just a little while. Violet is amazing. She joined us on Halloween. Everyone says how much it will change your life, but you really can’t understand until it happens to you. I love her so much it makes my heart hurt when I don’t get to see her for a while.
It seems that this was the year to have a baby. Kristen’s sister had a little boy in April, her cousin had a girl just before we had Violet, and our good friends Patrick & Lindsay had Stella about 2 weeks after Violet arrived. Yay babies!
Our gaming sessions have been interrupted a bit because of the babies, but it was a great year for games. We started playing Pathfinder and have been working through one of their huge adventure paths. Collin introduced us to some more Steve Jackson games. It seems that every week we get some games in. I’m hoping we can get back to a regular schedule.
All in all, there were a lot of ups and downs in 2011, but it ended on an upswing. We closed out the year with Erin, Billy, & Robbie over to play games and watch the Dick Clark special.
I hope everyone has a fantastic 2012!
