This is only my third post in all of 2014.
By most measures, 2014 has been a pretty insane year. I…
-Survived a fast paced international move that I had to orchestrate basically on my own (with kid in tow) – no corporate resettlement assistance or anything like that.
-Returned to Michigan in the middle of the most horrible winter in forever.
-Started a new job in Lansing.
-Got my kid adjusted to a new school, and then another new school.
-Worked on all the repatriation life adjustments, still in progress. Thanks to my 1990s experience living in Japan, I knew what I was in for this time around and I’ve been much nicer to myself in the process.
-Single mom’d for real: no more live in nanny or gardener or any of those other ridiculous Dubai luxuries.
-Also survived a minor car accident in my brand new car, that resulted in at least seven weeks of it off the road for repair and repair again. I wasn’t hurt but man was it a pain in the ass trying to get it fixed right.
My only New Year’s Resolution for 2014 was to survive the move. And I did. Life is good. Really, really good.
The question for 2015 is do I fake like this blog is worth keeping anymore? So much big stuff happened that I didn’t bother to share in this venue. It seems my internet life is mostly happening elsewhere now, Google Plus, Flickr (still), WhatsApp, Instagram, Twitter, and any other number of things. Maybe it’s time to suck out the best of Step Into My Thimble, turn it into a coffee table book, and retire this space.
