And now it’s 2018

How disconcerting to find that a year has gone by since my last post. Let’s see if I can recap 2017 in a concise way…

I did in fact successfully swim my way through the year! The Masters program and Coach Mohammad at the YMCA are awesome and I love my little team who I look forward to seeing every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning at 7:30 AM.

Bert and I started our vacation game strong in January with a lovely week on the island of Maui celebrating Apryl and Rob’s wedding.

I was lucky enough to also make a work trip to Montreal in May. Such a lovely city!

I also had a fantastic week making wonderful memories with my mom at Canyon Ranch in Tucson in September.

Unfortunately Bert and I had to cancel our summer vacation plans as he needed to stay close to his mom this summer. She has since stabilized and is doing well.

I also spent a good portion of this year training for the MS Society waves to wine fundraiser bike ride which took place in September. I did a nice ride with Harriet in March as a prelude and she still at the age of 82 drops me on the hills. It was good to be back on the bike.

October, November and December were pretty rocky between the fires in Santa Rosa causing my mom and Tony to evacuate (their house is fine), the tragic death of my mom’s dog (unrelated to the fires), Zinger being diagnosed with lymphoma (which we are treating with chemo), and a general malaise caused by the state of politics and the world.

All of this topped off by a nasty January cold and I find myself being reflective and looking forward to rebooting.

I don’t want to jinx anything but the horse is good 🙂
