Where does the time fly? And I don't mean this just because it's been 3 weeks since I last posted, but also because ... 2011?!?! We are already through one entire decade of the twenty-first century. Already? How the heck did that happen?
In 2001, I wasn't even married yet. The Twin Towers still stood (though I didn't much care about them ... they were just two really tall kind of plain buildings ... I much preferred [and still do] the Chrysler Building). I had been to Australia just once. I hadn't been to Morocco or Ecuador or Costa Rica or Samoens or Tasmania (yes, I know it's in Australia, but it really is its own kind of place), or even Boise. And yet it really doesn't seem like that long ago at all. Time may be relative, but it is also completely wacky!
Our holidays were just what we wanted. Too much wonderful food, lots of laughter and love, minimal amounts of gift receiving, and 2+ hours on Skype on Christmas Day, catching up with my beautiful family in Connecticut.
And now I am back at it. Working, playing, all caught up on QuickBooks, ready for whatever 2011 has to throw at me, which most likely will include 3 months of singledom as Mr. J heads off to Morocco to work as a river guide/raft company marketing guy. Yeah ... wow, right? I am hoping to get out there on miles for the end of his trip. I never thought I would get to go Morocco just one time (actually, I never really even considered going there until the opportunity came up in 2003). Who knew I would ever get to go back to that beautiful country?
I wonder what else 2011 has in store for us?
