Not a really great year. Too much time spent in hospitals and doctors’ offices. Not enough tennis. Weight gain. Peterkin died at the end of July. What a shock, and I still miss him.
On the plus side, lots of help from sisters Sue, Beth & Norah, cousin Eva, friends Jo, Alice, Betty & Bruce. I can’t thank them enough. Back playing tennis left-handed. I asked my teacher, Rosemary de Hoogh, “Can you teach me to play tennis left-handed?” “Of course!” she replied, and so she has. Incredible teacher. And then Sally came to live with Cassie and me. Don’t know what Morkies usually look like, but Sally looks like an angel. She’s warming up to us and not so scared anymore. (She is a puppy mill rescue.) She is even learning to pee outside, thank God! Maybe I won’t have to throw out any more rugs.
Best acquisition of 2011: My Kindle, although it may put me into bankruptcy.
Best decision of 2011: To retire at the end of Spring semester 2012. I can hardly wait.
