A Year in Constant Motion

Today marks a year since my dad went into the hospital. It feels like things have been non-stop ever since -- the type of busy where you know you are doing a lot of things, yet feel like you've accomplished nothing.

So what have I been up to the past year?

We celebrated our first Christmas as a family of three.

J turned a year old and celebrated by chowing down on naan, amongst other goodies.

I met my ice skating idol, the Kween herself, as she was inducted into the U.S. Figure Skating Hall of Fame at the 2012 Nationals.

I've been heading up to SF one weekend a month to check in on my mom. I've also been handling all of her affairs, which was overwhelming at the start since I needed to get established on all the accounts and figure everything out.

I got swamped with work. Then I got transferred to a new office location, in a region of the county I've never worked in. The transfer worked out to be a really good thing, and for a while gave me a lighter caseload, but now I'm back to being swamped.

We renewed our season tickets at the Pantages and saw some really great shows, including Book of Mormon.

I had a super fun weekend getaway with some of my favorite girls.

I had a rejuvenating solo getaway to Seattle/Kent for 2012 Skate America.

We've been househunting.

See what I mean? It doesn't seem like a whole lot of stuff, but I swear to you I seem to constantly have a lengthy to-do list that never gets completed. I know a lot of time is devoted to spending time with J, which I enjoy and have no regrets about, but seriously -- where does all the time go?!
