Happy New Year

Happy New Year to my friends, family and the blogosphere. It’s hard to believe 2021 has come and gone because quite frankly it feels like 2020 never left. 2021 is a year I won’t soon forget although I’d definitely like to forget some of it. In late January, we said goodbye to my Great Grandma, who was a sprite 104 years and 10 months old. To put her age in travel sports terms, she was a 16. Much like Betty White, she lived a full life and had her faculties until the end.

We had some great trips to Charlotte and Utah. Although we’d all like to go up to Minnesota to see our family. We haven’t been up there since 2019, which is the longest we’ve been away since we moved to Florida. Hopefully, we will be able to make the trip as a family in 2022. I’m also looking forward to Momcation 3.0, which has been two years in the making. I can’t wait to see my girls!

2022 will be another landmark as Goalielocks will be graduating high school. This is absolutely crazy since I’m pretty sure he was born yesterday. When he graduates, he’ll graduate with some great credentials. He’ll have his medical administrative certificate, telemetry, phlebotomist, medical assistant and pharmacy tech certificates. Thankfully, he’s been able to do clinicals this year, which is great. This will help these kids decide if they really want to pursue a career in medicine before spending money on college.

We had a great New Year’s Eve at the rink watching the Mayor and his friends play in a 4-on-4 tournament. The kids had a blast, but I think the parents may have had more fun. Perhaps, they had too much fun. I’m only kidding there’s no such thing as hockey parents having too much fun. After the tournament, we headed to a friend’s house for dinner and then all drop. Unfortunately, the Mayor had a headache, so we left around 11:00 pm.

Now we’re watching the Winter Classic. Unfortunately, I don’t think the Wild decided to show up. To be fair, we are missing some key players. Nevertheless, it would have been nice to have a competitive game and not a blow out. By the way, it’s so cold there that they have to warm the ice. And people wonder why we moved to Florida! Happy New Year!
