So here it is, almost 2012. Tomorrow will be the Omegas’ 14th anniversary. We are safely ensconced in our new house, which we closed on yesterday, the last closing of 2011 for our title company. We have had some thirty+ inches of snow at the house over December, which is only now totally melted off our back deck.
In excellent “greet the New Year” fashion, I am sick and regretting not hauling my butt off to the local doc-in-the-box today. OmegaDad has, in the past month, ripped 90% of the cornea off his right eye by gouging it with his thumb while in the throes of a nightmare (it’s all healed now, thank the Kozmik All), gotten sick (I think I got the thing I’m suffering from from him), and almost broke his finger yesterday slipping on the ice.
OmegaDotter, at least, is neither ill nor injured. She has her first gymnastics meet with her new gym next Friday (we will be there cheering her on), has made friends at her new school (one of the top ten elementary schools in the state, a pure fluke of good luck), and is settling in.
I leave you for a day or two–really! Just a day or two this time, I promise!–with the best of wishes for the New Year, from our house to yours!
(Hopefully, you will be able to see a video of OmegaDotter doing her newly accomplished back walkover on the high beam after this.)
