Below you can read about some highlights of my year! I did this as a way of making me focus on all the good in my life! Positive thoughts result in positive actions!
Going to Toledo Hospital with Boo so he could do his Therapy Magic with the folks in the Surgical Waiting area! Every Tuesday from 10-12 is where we spent the time! A lot of his likes on his Facebook Page, The Adventures of Boo Hansen came from the people we met at the hospital!
Grateful for every Wednesday that Roland and I took his brother Jan out for lunch!
April 4th was a 1st ever reunion from our Jacobson’s employee’s! We met at the Beirut and soon realized the room was elbow to elbow! It was a total success, kudo’s to the planners! Can’t wait for the next one!
The second Saturday of each month found us at Rolands Masonic Lodge for breakfast. New friendships were made with other wives and are now my friends!
May 7th found us with our toes in the sand as we visited The Big Island of Hawaii! We got to meet our friend Brian’s baby boy, JJ! We continue to find new and interesting things to see and do! This time it was watching a herd of Goats roaming in an ancient burial ground!
Our summer trip took us to Mt. Airy, Rock Hill, S.C., Greenville, S.C., and Knoxville, TN. It was a wonderful week and one I will never forget!
July 9th I ended up in Toledo Hospital overnight!
August 5 was the long awaited Hansen Family Gathering Roland and I put together. We would be meeting cousins that he has not seen in many years or never met before! It was a lot of work but worth every minute of it!
August also found us back in Frankenmuth overnight. We ate at Tony’s Truck Stop, shopped at Bonners, we walked and walked and walked! And then walked and shopped some more! Great fun always in Frankenmuth!
Mondays this past year were a highlight of our staying close to home! We went to lunch with the youngest grandkids to McDonalds and got to watch them play. Roland was so good at playing with the kids-he is a big kid, still!
September was memorable, I turned the big 70! We toured a new 55+ apartment complex in Sylvania, Ohio. that will now be our new apartment home. We are waiting for it to be ready in the Spring. I am excited about this move, I’m ready for it now!
Sadly my Brother-in-law Jan died in October! Knowing it was going to happen, it did not lessen the heart ache when it did! Our Wednesdays are just not the same anymore and never will be! RIP Jan Hansen, I love and miss you!
November was a busy month but the one thing that stands out is I began a new fitness class. Cardio Drumming at the JCC in Sylvania! Now every Monday from 1-2 I get my fit on!
Every holiday, birthday, anyday spent with the kids and grandkids was a blessing! These are only a few highlights of the year in review! I looking forward to making more memories in 2019, I hope it is a good year for all of us! Happy New Year!
