I can't say how many times I sat down to write a post over the last nine months and had nothing really to say. Holidays, vacations, storms, elections - all of these things came and went. My highlights of the year include visiting seraphtrevs and her wonderful family back in July, the President getting re-elected, and surviving another hurricane. No tornadoes this time, but my area was so damaged that the school district I work in was shut down for a week. But many people were so completely devastated by the storm that there's no real reason for me to go into detail about my experience as it just pales in comparison.
So instead, here is a picture: my parakeet, the prettiest bird ever. ;-)
