Out With The Old, In With The New

Buh-bye, 2012! Can't say I'm going to miss you much.
This is not a good picture.
We're cuter than this, usually....

You brought me some good stuff, like bringing my person back into my life, reminding me often that I have two very bright and witty children, introducing me, via my friend Dawn, to Philosophy Amazing Grace (I should be paid by them for plugging their products so much).

You also brought me some crap. Well, really, one big ol' piece of crap that you dropped in the middle of my life, where it proceeded to ripple outwards, ring upon ring. 

I walked into 2012 with cancer, although I didn't know it at the time. I'm leaving 2012 without it. Okay, without my boobies, too, but that's all good, because I have the new ones now (they're AWESOME - have you heard?). And the flat stomach. 

In retrospect, I guess ALL those ripples weren't bad.

But I'm done now. Keep your crap, 2012.

And bring it on, 2013. I can take it.


  1. Thank you! Yep, a win-win, when all was said and done. And they're both awesome! AWESOME, I tell you!

  2. Awesome!! Hope you have a great 2013!!!

  3. My Mom's a survivor. I just love hearing about other survivors. I wish you a HEALTHY 2013.

    1. Thank you, Karen! I've been one lucky girl. If you ever get a chance, I hope you'll read how a tornado figured into all of this, and you'll see why I was intrigued by the word "tornado" in your blog title! Have a terrific 2013!
