Today marks my 5 year blogging anniversary. How crazy is that? 5 years? Wow. I'm just gonna recap some of the things that have happened over the last 5 years. Some have been blogged, some have not. Either way, I need to remember why I do this. In no particular order, other than this is how my memory works, we have the following:
My mom died.
I had Gretta.
Moved to Illinois.
Moved back to Utah.
Attended marriage counseling twice.
Lost 40ish pounds.
Been through approximately 3 broken bones and a set of stitches between the kids.
Sean had 2 surgeries.
Traveled to fun parts of the country.
Made awesome friends.
Dad got married.
Meg got married.
Gained 2 1/2 neices on my side, numerous others on Sean's side.
Started a business.
Had some awesome girls' trips.
Made a fool out of myself repeatedly.
Been through a job loss.
Suffered through a major bout of depression.
Tried to find the true meaning of Christmas.
Had my first garage sale.
Hung out on the porch with Kate.
Hid in the basement when the tornadoes came.
Crashed the Vangina twice.
Sean got rear ended 3 times.
Been through the coldest winters I have ever felt.
Realized I need my family.
So many other things have happened. I still go back and read my old blog posts, and though most of the time I remember writing them, sometimes it's like I'm reading someone elses blog. I don't recognize my writing style or my humor. For some reason when I write, the words sound different in my head than they do on paper. I guess it's okay, seeing as it's my blog, and I can read it and write on it however I choose. But still, I can't believe it's been 5 years. I never imagined I would stick with something for this long.
