Last year I said goodbye to a bad year, and promised myself that 2012 would be a good year. Not that I believe that such promises work, but some says that what you send out comes back to you, and one can always hope. How was 2012 then? Well, it was not exactly a bad year, like last year, but it wasn't fantastic either. I suppose a mix of it all. That's how life is - isn't it?
Both son and I have got new jobs. Well, I know, I have forgotten to mention it here on my blog. It also came as a surprise to me. My company was merged with another company and then three in my company and four from the other was fired. Halleluja, and away she went. Before I got fired my great boss suddenly started behaving strange, so it was good I had to move on, because she wasn't good for me. Ten minutes after I had called a friend from the trade I got a call from my company's largest competitor's CEO and I was hired on the spot. HA! I already feel better. We are still extremely busy and I balance on a thin line of a stress breakdown all the time, but I have lovely colleagues and have just got a new great boss, so I cross my fingers and hope it will be good.
Son has been through some really bad things at his apprenticeship as a landscape gardener, so bad that we had to break his contract. I will not go into details here, but it was bad. Now he continues his apprenticeship at the gardener school and he likes it so far. Now he is the skilled one and the other trainees call him "master". It has build up his self-confidence. He has also found a new apprenticeship at an old and wellreputed company where he will start at spring. So we hope everything will be good, because he deserves it.
We visited Florida in February, and it was big and very different and very expensive, so I don't think we will go there soon again, unfortunately. The best things was meeting my penpal through many years, and experience son when we met Doc and saw the Delorian from Back to the Future at Universal.
Besides that - no broken legs, bad operations or other illnesses, so all in all everything is quite good. DH and I still love each other and son dances around spontaniously even if he is just making himself lunch. So basis is OK.
Happy New Year to you all - I hope 2013 will be a fantastic year for all of us.
No, it is not Marilyn who drinks with us. It is Jayne Mansfield who was among the leading bombshells in the fifties.
