Merry Christmas! December 2007
So much has happened to me this year, I felt a Christmas letter was the best way to bring everyone up to date on “Kerri’s Grand Adventure.”
The year started off with me working for the CPA firm and dreading another tax season. So I moved on and decided to make some life altering decisions. But first, I was going skiing. WRONG MOVE….I ended up skiing for a week and on the last day I tore my ACL, MCL and meniscus on my left leg. BUMMER. Thank goodness Cece and Sande from the salon were with me. Sande didn’t leave my side while I laid there on the mountain while Cece went to get the Ski Patrol. The ride down was cool. I wanted to go again! And I am so thankful for my cousins coming to pick me up at the ski lodge taking care of me in Pinetop.
While I was recovering, I was invited to visit my cousin’s in Florid. So I was off again. What a wonderful place to visit in the spring time! They took me to see Cape Canaveral, Sea World, the beach and the Atlantic Ocean, Gator, ton’s of Gator and we even went deep-sea fishing. During this time I decided to sell my house and move – somewhere – anywhere, Florida, Montana Alaska (I hear there’s a lot of single man there), Colorado maybe. But I wanted to get out of Tucson, I have lived there since I was 4 and it was time to move on.
I had surgery on my left knee on April 11, 2007. My house went on the market April 30, 2007. I was showing my house while I lay in bed recuperating....a funny story. Sometimes I would be in bed and put the covers over my head while people walked around me and some didn’t even notice me. (Nosey neighbors!) My house sold in 37 days and we closed on June 6th. That was really good timing because the market went down AFTER I sold the townhouse.
I moved in with Summer for a couple of weeks then made my way to Hawaii. Yup, Hawaii. I spent the month of July there and truly loved the island life and the people, one in particular, oh those island boys (grin, wink wink). Summer came out to visit me for a week and we had a blast. She went diving with the sharks; we parasailed, snorkeled, went to Luau’s, got lost, and ate pineapple and coconuts. We toured the island, visited Pearl Harbor, went on a dinner cruise, but most of all had a real vacation, just us girls.
I went back to Tucson and packed up my little car and headed north. My plan was to tour the country, but I stopped in Littleton, Colorado to visit my good friend’s Maggie and Patrick. Their hospitality was so nice well, here I am. Didn’t get very far. However, I love the little town of Littleton and really like the city of Denver. There is so much to do and see. The snow is a little nerve-racking, but I am getting used to it and learning how to get unstuck in the snow.
I am working in Downtown Denver, taking the train to and from work. Enjoying the Live Theater, Concerts, Parades, The Ballet and Musicals. It is so different from Tucson, cooler, a lot cooler and I like what I am doing. The people I have met are nice and every day is a new adventure. I’m glad I moved, and who knows, I may come back to Tucson! (To visit)
I have enclosed a card with my new phone number and temporary address (I plan on buying a house, IF I survive the winter…lol). Also, check out my blog!
Best Wishes to all and Have a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
