OK, I guess after one year and a couple of weeks I ought to re-activate this thing.
We're still here, still in the house we bought, and I am still in the job I started in December 2010. R was out of work for 11 months but he has a job now too. And F is still in her spot, and thinking about buying a house.
Can't talk about politics right now because it's too irritating but I hope the country has a great 2012 with the economy improving all the way.
