Decade in Review

Most years I do a “year in review” post around this time but since it’s the end of a decade I thought it would be fitting to do highlights of the decade instead.  So here it is, my decade in review:

2010 – The girls turn 2, family vacation to Long Beach, WA

2011 – 5th anniversary trip to Hawaii, but the girls and Paul’s parents come with because there is no one to watch them for us (maybe his parents would have, I don’t know, I don't really think so), we adopt our cats, Cleo and Maisy.

2012 – My mom, recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, has a stroke and ends up in a Alzheimer’s care facility (not really a highlight).  Family trip to Leavenworth, WA

2013 – The girls start kindergarten.  Family trip to Coeur d’Alene, ID

2014 – Seahawks win the Super Bowl, I return to work part-time, girls’ first trip to Disneyland

2015 – After working at my job as a contractor, I get hired as a full-time employee (a few weeks earlier on 12-15-14).  Family trip to Colorado to visit Paul’s sister.

2016 – 10th anniversary trip to Victoria, BC, without the girls!  Family trip to Cabo San Lucas

2017 – Paul turns the big 5-0, family trip on a Caribbean Cruise, we get a dog, Kona, I find out I have a half-sister I never knew about

2018 – Family trip to San Antonio/Austin, TX to visit friends

2019 – I turn 50, celebrate with a trip to Vegas (without the girls), meet my new-found half-sister, family trip to Disneyland, we are gifted the Crescent Bar condo from the in-laws, the girls start middle school, my mom passes away (again, not really a highlight).
