What Happened: Neal got in a car accident; his car (2008 Honda Fit) was totaled, but he was relatively unscathed, although he did need chiropractic and some physical therapy.
What We Learned: That the 2010 Honda Fit is even better. And that dealing with insurance companies sucks, which we actually already knew.
This year I did every art show I could, and have thrown myself whole heartedly into making LooLoo's Box viable. It's been exciting, exhilarating, and wonderful... but also exasperating, exhausting and consuming.

My only child, the youngest of our three, moved out. We became 'Empty Nesters'. It was hard. However, I now have a dedicated workroom, and am reclaiming our dining room for, well, dining. It's been a long time.
We have an immediate family member who has been making a lot of unhealthy life choices. This situation is ongoing.

Early Menopause. Beginning to have hot flashes and other fun physical stuff. I'll be 49 on 12/1. Sigh...
On top of the rest, our house was broken into TWICE - both times, my ID or my entire purse was taken.
