Thank God you’re over. Seriously, 2016 was one of the worst years of my life. It took so many celebrities that inspired me and so many others. David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher to name a few.
I fought my way through horrendous pain associated with a hernia, and had a surgery September 8th, and had to deal with several complications- including a drain that fell out and an abscess that ruptured right outside the ER doors. I’ve had PTSD episodes related to the medical trauma of the previous year.
I started going back to the LDS church because I had hit such a rock bottom and was so desperate for answers and peace that I went to my childhood church to seek answers and I found them. I began to really search and ponder the scriptures and began to grow my testimony again.
I also got back into photography in a very big way. I decided I would do everything in my power to go back to school to get my degree. I also participated and failed at NaNoWriMo and due to my health issues I couldn’t finish even thought I was actually ahead for the first week.
DJ was over the road for most of this year, and ended this year with going back over the road. Which is fine, I’m used to it at this point. Jason started this year with struggling to crawl, and now he’s walking. John is struggling to talk, and I’m unsure if it has anything to do with his hearing, or the way his brain processes what’s being said.
Christmas was nice we concentrated on getting the kids presents and are waiting on getting our stuff for each other with taxes. I plan on getting my full frame camera with taxes as well as paying for the wedding.
I can’t believe this year I’ll be getting married! I’m so excited! I have so many hopes for the future! So many goals.
So with that, 2016 I am glad that you’re gone.
Hello, 2017 Please be gentle with me.
