Happy Holidays!

Thank you for finding and reading my blog and interacting with me for another year.  I shall not be sorry to say goodbye to 2019 – something I feel like I think every single year.  Is that why we look forward to the new year, because every single year of adulthood is just mentally taxing and emotionally exhausting?  Anyway, let’s see what 2020 has to offer.

From my family to yours, enjoy the festive season – whether or however you celebrate – I hope you dust off the cobwebs of 2019 and I wish you all the very best for 2020.

PS  Is 2020 the year in which I become the shortest member of my family?

  1. The prospect of you being the shortest member of your family made me laugh. When I worked for Writers in the Schools, I could find a student taller than me as early as–incredibly–third grade.

    • Ha ha! Yes. There are kids at my son’s Elementary School who are significantly taller than I am. By MIddle and High School, most are towering over me. When I was a newly qualified HS teacher, I was once mistaken for a student by a colleague who chastised me for being in the corridor between lessons.

  2. Happy Holidays.

    When I started a job back in 2001, I saw what looked like a 12 – 13 female in an employee only area. I didn’t say anything as other employees didn’t shoo her away and I was new to the agency. Turns out she was 35. I am bad about guessing height, but she pretty short, under 5 feet, maybe about 4’8″ or so..

    • I am from a family who are under the average for height in both males and females. Likewise, my husband and his family are all pretty average. However, there is a weird recessive gene it seems in my family that leads to some folks (all males) being 6 feet tall or more. My youngest brother and sister are the tallest and shortest among my siblings and I (I am second shortest) in that my brother is either 6′ or 6’1″ and my sister is not under 5′.

  3. Happy New Year!! I wish you and yours all the best!! I’m the shortest in my family…the youngest member- a 16 yr old nephew now towers above me. I just figure that it’s now guaranteed that there will be someone able to reach things on high shelves for me…😆
