Good bye 2008...

Wow! What a year. And I made it through... all the way to the end just in case you were wondering :)

You may have noticed my postings have slowed down. Life seems pretty much back to normal and I am enjoying that.

I've been back to work full-time over a month and things are going well there. I am very happy to still be employed, although very aware that Sun will be cutting a lot of their workforce this year. I've decided that worrying about what might come in that realm is out of my control so have opted not to give it much thought or energy other than to just keep doing what I do.

Physically, the last thing that was bothering me aside from fatigue was the neuropathy. While I wish I could say it's gone away completely - I can't. But... I can say that it's either stopped getting worse, or I've become more used to it. Either way, it's not bothering me as much as it had been. I don't have to wear gloves all the time and I don't ever get to the point where I feel like crying about the pain either. And, I've been able to grow my nails out. Little things bringing me back to normal.

Overall, I had a great year full of blessings. I am, however, ready to say good bye to it and move on to an even better new year. I've never made New Year's resolutions before in my life, but have been thinking about some things I might like to do... Take some classes (cooking, dance, sewing) , drink more water, read more books, take a trip, have another wine tasting party, be one year closer to being cured.

Sounds good to me... let's get started.
