Where has the time gone? More importantly, where has the year gone? I mean it feels as if I just sat down to write my first blog post and now here I am a year later. So, Happy Blogiversary to me!
By all rights this should be a day of celebration for undertaking something new. However, like last year on this date, I’m blogging about something heart-wrenching. Hold on to your panties because I’m not about to get all emotional. Well, okay, I was fairly emotional a few days ago, but my mood has sombered since then. You see, I really wanted this post to be different. I mean, REALLY wanted it! But alas, it just wasn’t meant to be, which is still hard for me to swallow. You see I started my blog on the whim of high feelings over Kentucky’s loss to UCONN in the championship game last year. Tired of hearing all about the NBA draft and who was going or staying, I sat down and penned my thoughts, never imagining what was in store for me next. What happened? Well, I sold my first book, my family finally took that vacation to Yellowstone that we’d been planning for years, and my husband won his first dirt track race. So yeah, I have quite a bit to brag about. It’s been a great year. But the one thing that would make it even better is if I could be writing a different post than I am today.
Almost a week has passed since Kentucky lost to Wisconsin in the final four. I still feel ill just thinking about it, because it wasn’t just any loss. It was the loss of something special. Something no other team has done. To win the championship with an undefeated season. We were so close. 38-1.
To the seven young men entering the NBA draft, good luck! And to the new one’s coming in, welcome to Kentucky.
Until next year …
