Oh boy! 2009 was a big year for Lish and Matt! As of this summer they are homeowners and now share a roof, a bed, and a mortgage. "Are those wedding bells I hear?" No, as of yet that is not what you hear.
This year, Matthew received a promotion. His new title: "Senior Contact Center Specialist." While we're not exactly sure what that title means, we do know that it signifies the complete demise of Matthew's dreams! Goodbye, creative aspirations! Hello, "second-to-bottom rung of the corporate ladder"! What's that? Matthew's unwillingness to remove himself from the joy-smothering office environment does not necessarily mean he will never achieve even the simplest of his life goals? Tell that to his "overwhelming sense of dread"!
This year, Alicia won an Emmy! ..."Not!" Her coworkers did, but she didn't. Better luck in 2010, Lish! That's if your company even survives into the new year! Would all the people who have their original shoulders please raise their hand? "Not so fast, Lish!" (Like you could raise your hand anyway!) Due to the ravages of rheumatoid arthritis, Lish is having her shoulder replaced and will be spending the holidays under heavy sedation. Yep, she's one of the "lucky ones"!
Finally, there has been an addition to the family: Bananacat (aka Banana, Nana, Nanners), a domestic shorthair kitten foundling! She has adjusted quickly to her new home, and will be having her uterus removed shortly.
Best wishes for the holidays and may you be happy and healthy in the coming year!
