Farewell 2017, ya filthy animal

I very, VERY easily could rip into this absolute dumpster-fire of a year. Not only a year, but a “season” that started in November of 2015 and has kept on giving. But no, no. Good things happened this year, and I’m going to celebrate them.

2017 highs


I went to the Womens March in January, which gave me the confidence to write, call, and fax my representatives. I’m on the fence about going to the one next month, and I can’t put my finger on why.

I met Joey McIntyre from NKOTB. He was dreamy.

WM brought Murphy home in April, and while he (dog, not spouse) has been the most destructive puppy I’ve had in a long time, I love him to bits and he’s made our home happier and much less sedentary.

Mom and I took a wonderful Caribbean Cruise, which was exactly what we needed. I really want us to go on another one, but I don’t see it happening in 2018. Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 | Day 4 | Day 5

WM and I took a trip to see our Seattle friends, and I think that’s becoming a summer tradition.

I finally got my permanent dental implant and said goodbye to my flipper. I still worry every day that I’ll break another tooth or that this implant will fail. Day by day.

We had 2 family weddings this year, one on each side. My family cleans up well, and I had fun drinking and dancing with them. And basically seeing them outside the framework of a funeral.

I saw Yoga with Adriene live in Philadelphia and lived through the class.

And we launched the Big!Work!Project which has been taking up all of my brainspace for months.

It was also our 5-year wedding anniversary. Oh, and I managed to migrate most of my posts from ladygypsy.net to this domain and leave all of the Lunarpages crap and errors behind! My #1 wrestling boo AJ Styles has had a great year. We haven’t been nuked yet!

The rest of this year, though? Here’s the remainder of 2017 in a pic…

WM and I are staying in tonight, as is our habit. I don’t think I’ve been awake at midnight in a few years, and that’s okay.

Thank you for sticking with this weird blog relaunch. Let’s go tackle 2018 together!

  • Ya know, I’ve been on top of my “Year in Review” posts for the last couple of years but this time…meh. I’ll have to go through my Phone Pix folder to jog my memory and post it later in the week.

    Your highs were definitely notable and memorable. Let’s see what 2018 decides to throw at us, yes?

    Happy New Year! 🎉🎊🥂
