2018 MAYBE bucket list

2017 was a weird year around here. 
Paul was working nearly every day. Grandma took ill.  Michelle spent part of the year in Switzerland, We lost Darla and gained 2 new puppies.   I was fortunate to have been hired for some amazing parties.  Sally took the semester off of school and started a new job and got her drivers license.    It doesn't seem like we did much... but a lot was going on.    Much of the year was filled with stress and worries...  but there was also a lot of laughter,  some beautiful days on the water and wonderful holiday celebrations. 

...  and I am extremely grateful for each and every moment.

I am praying for a prosperous 2018 where we see more of Paul,  everyone is healthy, and my girls are able to fulfil their dreams. 

By now,  I know better than to make resolutions.
I stopped making them years ago because I never keep them. 




But what I am going to do is make maybe plans for the new year.
Maybe I'll get dressed tomorrow.
