2007 in review

January - My dad and my father-in-law were both hospitalized. The first for congestive heart failure and bronchitis; the latter for lumbar laminectomy with fusion. I also got Red Mark Studio started.

February - I received my first-ever bonus!

March - Goodbye Acura! We donated it to the American Heart Association. Also celebrated first year anniversary of my resignation from my old job.

April - Drove up to Niagara Falls and discovered amazing Indian food in Punjabi Dhaba. My husband also changed our kitchen flooring. Finally.

May - Went to Shenandoah National Park for Memorial Day weekend. Started Green Unlimited with my sister Lynn.

June - My niece Milani was born!

July - We bought our new bed and nightstands...after 3 years! What else? Harry Potter - both Order of the Phoenix and Deathly Hallows. Also went to Delaware Water Gap Recreation Area.

August - Fun month! I got a new camera - a Fujifilm Finepix S6000fd - from my husband as a birthday/wedding anniversary gift. We also went to Utah, saw three national parks - Arches, Canyonlands and Capitol Reef - apart from going to Monument Valley and Four Corners. Did the Fiery Furnace hike at Arches National Park.

September - Not a lot happened this month because of the very busy month prior.

October - Yet another quiet month...just the usual nose to the grindstone.

November - We went to the Czech Republic. Zack found a girlfriend. Zack got sick and was hospitalized due to hemorrhagic gastroenteritis. I started the month feeling restless, but it turned out to be a busy month.

December - Learned about other people undergoing The Big Stuff. Eventually, we did too. My FIL was diagnosed with lung cancer. Downside? Having to go to California with such a reason. Upside? Getting to watch my husband's family go about their day-to-day routine.
