As the year is drawing to an end, I am in a way relieved to be soon able to turn a page. 2011 has not been the best of years by any means. Two surgeries, my father-in-law's cancer, many frustrations with work and the constant worry about Bug: all this was pretty taxing. Crafting and blogging have been my escape and my sanity check through this roller coaster.
Things are definitely looking up for 2012: Bug has been finally properly diagnosed, the treatment is working wonders. She is doing great in school, beyond all our most optimistic expectations really. My father-in-law is in remission, with some mild adjustments he is back to a normal life. I finally was able to transfer to the job I was hoping for and in a couple of weeks I will know whether I need another surgery... fingers crossed.
I want to thank all of you, readers, friends, for all your words of support and wish you a peaceful, happy and prosperous year 2012. For myself and my family, I hope for health and to be able find joy in every day.
