milestones

This week marks two important anniversaries.  Today is the one year anniversary of The Troubles at the Roanoke, when we first began the long journey of dealing with the lease mess, documented here, here,  and here.  On this day a year ago, we had NO idea that it would take the twists and turns that it did.  One year later, we have a lease and soldier on trying to make a go of it in this economy.  I sure wouldn’t mind worrying about TOO MUCH money instead of not enough – someday hopefully.  In the meantime, we are, as ever, grateful for the support and love constantly on display while we struggled through the lease nightmare.  It boggles my mind still.  Looking back on that time, it’s a wonder one or the both of us didn’t end in the hospital from stress. It’s amazing what the human mind and body can put up with when put to the test.

Secondly, Saturday makes one year of Foible and Folly, this self-indulgent little blog.  It doesn’t seem possible that it’s been that long.  Thanks for reading these ramblings – according to the stat counter, there are a few actual readers when you weed out the spam referrers.  Thanks especially to the commenters – it’s the only way I know if something resonates.

As with The Roanoke, I am still working on Foible and Folly, trying to make them great. I am thankful to have each in my life and for your support, love and faith.
