Before I begin a list of things I would like to accomplish in 2004, I like to look back on the ending year .....
January I decided to take skiing lessons. Big mistake. Once you are middle aged, you are afraid of getting hurt. Zooming down an ice covered hill out of control in sub freezing weather, covered in layers of clothing while sweating, swinging the poles wildly is not fun! Plus, I fell and hyper-extended my thumb. Took months to heal.
February, the devastating ice storm to central Kentucky which brought us to our knees.
March was my first cruise to the Bahamas.
April saw the the Triple Crown of Running in Louisville where I competed and completed the 10K, 10 miler, and then the mini marathon.
May brought the annual Slither in German town...which is the night before the Kentucky Derby, hosted by my brother in law, Daniel. About 60 to 80 of his friends and family walk to as many bars as humanly possible in the Germantown area of Louisville....I'm certain I will compose an entry about this "happening".
June...the Lake. Every year my family has a long week end at my other brother in law's (Karl) family lakehouse on TVA Lake Norris in Tenn....the greatest time.
July...Bluegrass 10,000 another 10K. Bluegrass Fair, work is crazy. Had the worst case of Posion Ivy ever in the history of mankind.
August still crazy at work, Bridget's Birthday. The dreaded and expected August 3rd alert.
September, going to elope in Tenn but my Dad is admitted to hospital with congestive heart failure. He recovers, elopement put on back burner.
October...fall in love with AOL-journals.
November - December means family and remembering. Had the worst case of swollen lips in the history of mankind.
One last thing...matched one number on the Powerball game! The Powerball! Win $3.00.
