January: Started new job at a call center. The working environment was a tad different than I was used to, let’s just say.
February: A (god)mother loves with all her heart. I dedicated my Valentine’s Day post to the wonderous Goddaughter of Love, Lauren.
March: Wrapped in a big bubble of love There are no words to describe this month. Just none.
April: Relay for Life at UVA and a special speech in honor of my godchild. Here’s a snippet:
May: Well, I contemplated life in a convent and decided that if it didn’t have wireless, it wasn’t gonna work for me:
June: FREEDOM!! Woo Hoo! Thanks, Universe!
July: BLOGATHON! 24 hours of bloggy goodness served up piping hot by me and cousin ‘O Love. Check out the 5am entries for rambling on about nothing. Yeah. Good times.
Check out this fabulous bit of writing:
August: Goodness! I was full of seething rage for Kevin Federline! Clearly, I had gone insane!
September: Ah yes. That thing they call work. And here’s the first time Boss McTizzypants visits us on this here blog:
October: So, yeah. This was a fun month. Props to me and PiK for stepping up to the scary ass plate and thwacking the hell outta that ball! Woot! Woot!
November: It is no coincidence that Mom and Lauren passed away in the same year. None at all. Before I left for Sancta Sophia, we got news that mom’s uterine cancer had spread. The doctors told me she had about three months. Turns out, it was three weeks. After spending 10 days in the high vibrational energy on the mountain, I returned to watch my mom slip away before my eyes. She promised me before I left that she would be there when I got back and she was, but not for long. I am thankful she didn’t suffer a long time. Here’s part of the eulogy I wrote and read at her funeral mass:
December: I looked at the few entries I have made this month and none of them are in the least noteworthy. This year has worn my ass out, y’all. Losing my mom and goddaughter, working, not-working, working again, getting promoted, trip to and being accepted at Sancta Sophia seminary, Relay for Life, blogathon, new friendships, renewing old friendships, writing, reading, crying … I could go on and on. This month has been one of reflection. And … taking a breath.
Bonus event: The Natural Living Expo in October where I did intuitive readings for people under the aegis of Rose Rosetree. What an experience! Here, read about it:

It’s been a huge year for you, not always happy but full of reminders of how important it is to LIVE life and not just talk about what we wish we were doing.
What a year buddy. May next year be filled with the fruits of the growth you gained through the pain you bore this year. Im glad I found you! Happy TT
Great TT! I might have to modify this idea for the TT next week. :)
A year of acomplishments and challenges – and you went thru it
better than anyone ever could. Be very proud of yourself my friend.
I wish you lots of joy and laughter for the year to come,
and raise a glass to you and our new friendship. May all your
hopes and dreams be realised, now and in the future.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year my friend.

Very nice look back on the past year. It was clearly a difficult year for you, losing your mom and your goddaughter. My sympathies for your losses. May 2007 be a positive year for you.
sounds like a great year.
my tt is up
Lack of wireless is your only reason that a convent wouldn’t work for you? ;) What about the constraining and terribly ugly outfits. The lack of conjugal visits. Etc.
It’s been quite a year for you, Lisa! Good TT.
