My best friend of 21 years got home from his mission. I didn't realize how much I depended on him for support. It really was tough. (And I didn't even serve the freaking mission!) But he is home, and he is ready for some silliness, as am I. Here's a treasure from circa 1995?
Next, I'm still in college. I feel as if I'll be 35 when I graduate. But it's so good for me to stretch myself. I need to do it a lot more in 2012.
I had a doggie. As mentioned in my post "Ezma the Dog", we had my brother's dog live with us for a few months. She is a doll, and I really miss her since she returned to Seattle at Thanksgiving. Here's proof I was a dog person from the beginning.
I got a new job. It pretty much fell into my lap. I'm a very loyal person, almost to a fault, and it almost kept me from moving onto a better job. But I did, and I don't regret it. I love my job. Not many can say that, and I feel so welcome, and apart of a workplace family. Such a lucky girl.
My family has put up with my for another year. I know that everyone did the "I'm thankful" post, but here's mine. It's only a month late. I am so grateful for my family. I would honestly be homeless without them. I am a crazy spirit. I'm fiercely independent I like to think, but I really depend on them a lot. The great thing is, they always deliver. They put up with me, and believe in me when I don't deserve it in the least. They know when I need a nap or food or some "Jana Time".(Alone time) They know when I am gonna lose it, and keep messing around until I snap. I love making them laugh. Probably the most gratifying thing in my life. So thanks family. I appreciate all you do for me, especially when I'm a butt, and you are nice anyway. Here's to love at home in 2012. Here's some precious ones.
A very Merry Christmas from the Stoneman Family.
I now proudly wear Debby's Ugly Christmas Sweater to the parties each year. Love ya Deb!
