Think about a major milestone that happened with your family this past year. How has this affected you?
For me, packing my life into a wooden crate and shipping it across the country has been the biggest milestone of the past 12 months. I finally feel as though I am at home here in southern California, and not longing to get my hands on an obscure item buried in a forgotten corner of The Yella House in order to complete a project. I’m sure it was a momentous occasion for Pops as well, considering that he no longer had to try to make room for my things and could begin his own larger renovation projects. The only person that was not happy about the event was Barbie, who suddenly found herself dealing with a mountain of boxes stacked in the dining room for the next several weeks! She did well, though–definitely a trooper!
