Wow, what a year. It's hard to believe that in a few short hours that this year will be over. I have so much to be thankful for - I am truly blessed. It has been an amazing year for HG and myself. I shot my first squirrel. HG shot a bear and a deer this year. Being directionlly challenged and terrified of getting lost, I'm proud of myself for finding the courage to venture out and go 'downtown' to interview. HG worked hard to gather wood and get us a wood stove insert to keep us warm. Sally hasn't killed Tula. Shorty thankfully hasn't peed on anything in the house. And I'm happy to be spending tonight watching movies with my husband.
