Nearing the end of 2010...

In 2010…

My mama fought breast cancer and had to go through Chemo treatments.

I sought out other employment…only to realize that the other prospect was full of lunatics…and decided that I was more than happy to stay at the Journal.

I’ve continued to be a nut magnet and have met a’many a’one this year.

I made a “bucket list” so-to-speak.

I was able to go on 2 vacations to the Panhandle, where I met new friends, and got to experience new towns, new restaurants, new people, new things.

I’ve lost someone that I dearly loved.

I became an even bigger fan of Mrs. Paula Deen.

We were blessed with “the” Karter Lee.

I became an expert at making pillowcase dresses.

I was accepted into FSU.

We had what will forever be known as the "December Watsonville Mailbox Hate Crimes"

Things I’ve learned:

Sometimes it’s better to let someone hit rock bottom and face the consequences rather than constantly bailing them out and them never learning.

When a friend is hurting, the best thing you can do for them is to hug them and let them know that you’re there for them. It makes it easier when they know that they aren’t alone…but no matter how much you may want to, you can’t help heal the pain that they’re experiencing.

Random little fact: Acid is the only drug not detectable on a drug test. (via a friend from Carrabelle)

Along that same line: If you are pulled over and the officer suspects you’ve been drinking…if you refuse a breathilizer, you will be charged with “refusal” as opposed to “DUI.” You will still lose your license for a year…but the charge will be different.—This I learned after questioning the GCSO. A special thank you to the officers that put that Journal dispute to rest.

Joe Mama’s pizza is the best in Florida.

Sometimes it can actually hurt when someone tells you that they love you.

My mama’s driving CAN actually worsen.

When faced with boredom, and armed with a brick, citrine, and a boulder…local teenagers can be creative when beating down your mailbox three nights in a row.

It's hard to take a person that's yelling at you seriously when he isn't wearing his teeth.

No matter what happens…I still have white coat syndrome.

"Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option."

That some people are destined to have crazy things happen to them….I have been blessed to be one of those people.

Old people can still rock out.

The Japanese are a very focused group of people (according to a customer).

“Men are like chocolates…Avoid the nutty ones, and if one has been tested and put back…leave it alone.”

Favorites of 2010:

Favorite Movie: Eat Pray Love

Favorite TV Show: How I met your Mother

Favorite Song: So, so many…but I’d have to say “Love the way you lie” by Eminem/Rhiannna

Favorite Book: (reading it now) “It ain’t all about the cookin’” –Paula Deen’s memoirs.
