2011 A Year to Remember – Or Not

I can’t believe we are at the end of December. This year has been one of the longest and shortest years. It feels like just yesterday I was heading to Hopkins for the first time and, at the same time, it feels like a distant memory that I can hardly recall.

In case you missed it, this is what happened in 2011 on Glee

We rang in the New Year with Scarlet & Mr Darcy down at the lake. A few days later, Mom came to visit. During her visit, we found out that I wasn’t dying! Well, one could argue that you are technically one step closer to dying everyday, but I digress. I met the awesome Dr W & we all know what happened there. (If you missed it, go here, here, here and here.)

Joel and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary at an inn near the University of Virginia. Then, Joel killed my MacBook Pro – which is now affectionately called the DeskBook Pro.

I got a PUPPY! OK, so Bertie isn’t real, but he is really awesome. Sir Bertie went with me when my hardware was updated AND I got a replacement for the DeskBook Pro!

Amy & I decided to run a half-marathon. Granted, it isn’t until late February 2012, but we all know I need as much training as possible if I am going to run/walk/crawl 13.1 miles.

I saw a lady go into labor at the Pentagon City Apple Store & the store cheered when she announced the middle name would be Apple!

Survived my first earthquake! (Hurricane and tropical storm too)

In August, I took my first flight post-surgery. Followed by 2nd, 3rd and 4th. I think now, I finally figured out what I need to do to make flights less painful post-surgery, which is a good thing.

Old Town Suds was born at the West End Farmers Market.

I made it to my birthday & 9 months post-surgery. At my 9 month check-up Dr W labeled my surgery a success!

Expanded my horizons with acupuncture (Seriously, if you have ever considered acupuncture go try it now.)

We moved to a condo! Also known as the day I beat Frogger.

Lastly, even though we will celebrate our two year anniversary in March, Christmas marks 4 years of two geeks trying to learn how to put up with each other.


Well, that was my 2011. The year that will forever be one to remember – or not remember depending on my mood. I hope 2012 brings everyone health and happiness!
