it turns out 2016 wasn't half bad

I was thinking last week how done I was with 2016.  It seemed like the pits. But really, it was just November that was the pits because of baseball and politics and me not yet figuring out how to successfully parent when C has a trial (I really need to work on that).

It turns out 2016 was pretty awesome for us.

We spent three weeks at the beach. Does it get any better than that?

The Indians went all the way to the World Series and were oh-so-close to winning it.  While the outcome wasn't what I would've hoped for, I was able to go to every home ALDS and ALCS game and Dad and Emily went to game 6 of the World Series.  Seriously, thinking about it makes my eyes well up.  What are these tears? (Sports are the only thing that really, really make me cry.)

AND Cleveland DID win a championship! Thanks, Cavs!

We decided to sell our house, listed it, and now have it in contract (in a matter of 30 days). Prayers that everything finalizes as it should, please.

We found a house, that no one else has wanted over the last 8 months, and are in contract. Lord willing, this is going to be our forever home. Looks like we'll be closing and moving the week C has a trial. Prayers I figure out trial-single-parenting before then.

C made partner! Something he's been working towards since day one.

So all in all, I'd say 2016 was a winner and 2017 is shaping up to be just as good.
