Congrats, Shir!

Last year, and honestly the year before that have been a lot. I'm not sure how to even put it into words.

Indeed. May 2022 be far more boring and uneventful. A whole lot less stressful would rock too.

A heartfelt thank you to all who have sent cards, including one received today! I didn't do any holiday decorating this year, for reasons, and the cards lifted our spirits so much. To those who didn't get around to it yet, know it is no less joy, and adds an extra element of surprise to receive cards in any month. Love you all.

If you're going through hell/keep on going/don't slow down/keep your fear from showing/you might be gone/'fore the devil even knows you're there

My cards have not all gone out but I am thinking of you all and will try to get there.

I don't really want to look back on this year. There was good as well as bad, but I really just want to put it in a box, put the box in the attic, and be done with it.

Hard same.

I'm sorry Pickles didn't work out but it sounds like she will find a good home. And there are piggies out there that will be a good fit for Prubs and the Zhmayems.

Good luck Amy. Sheryl it must be tough having to give up something that is such a big part of your life. Hopefully though in the future it will be something all of you can do in the future.

Are we going to open one of these threads for this year?

I am a woman of various inclinations and only some of the time are they to burn everything down in frustration

That this one never closed kind of suits my sense of being unstuck in time, but I suppose having one for 2022 would be tidier.
