Old Year



January
* We discovered mold in our duplex, which (along with many other problems, including disappearing landlords) prompted us to start looking for a new place to live in earnest.
* I auditioned for the Corvallis Repertory Choir and got in.

February
* There were lots of personnel changes at work, which was painful while it was happening but we ended up with a good team that (most of the time) gets along really well.

March
* I turned 26.
* My and inchworm pattern was published in CrochetMe magazine, along with a button cover tutorial.
* I started taking accounting classes.
* The CrochetMe book started taking shape and I sent in a few swatches.
* Guster came to Portland, and I went up to see it with solteronita and rini.

April
* Cory turned 32.
* Corvallis Repertory Singers began rehearsals for my first concert with them.
* My shrug pattern was a mid-issue surprise for CrochetMe.
* Cory's stepmother lost her battle with cancer.

May
* My first CRS concert was great fun, but disappointing because Cory was in Seattle for his stepmother's funeral.
* My cousin had her first baby.

* Remmy started feeling really sick at the end of the month.

July
* Remmy went to doggie heaven
* We found a townhouse to move into, after six months of searching.
* Cory and I marked our third anniversary
* Hot. Hot hot hot. And the single-paned windows on our duplex made it just as hot inside as it was outside (100s for a couple of days straight).
