Things have been kinda hectic here at Casa Simpson, what with school orchestra concerts, company parties, visitors and such. Fun, but hectic. The counter-offer was ignored, which is as good as rejected. We’ve had three more showings but no nibbles. Ah well. It is what it is.
I’m hip deep in my first big web design project, putting all of those classes to good use.
Beyond that, there hasn’t been much to report. I have been playing around quite a bit at Lunatic Fringe and you’re welcome to follow along. It’s an addicting thing, being able to freeze those moments.
We’re rounding the bend into the bumpy part of the year; too many anniversaries of things that shouldn’t have been. Year two brings a different flavor of grief, deeper, fewer sharp edges, a slightly more mature vintage. There are still moments that catch in the throat, twist the gut, and make us duck our heads to quietly wipe the tears away. And in a few days we will celebrate the day that brought us our lovely Zoë and sweet Lennox, then remember the days that we said goodbye. It’s the bitter that makes us appreciate the sweetness of what we have that much more.
I wish everyone a very happy holiday season and send wishes that the new year brings all that you hope for. As always, we end the year most thankful for the love and support of all of you. Cheers!
