What I did in 2005

For those of you out of the loop, here is a partial listing of Stanefski family highlights for 2005. Please save your questions until the end.

- Kristin and I were in a total of three car accidents between the two of us. In each case we were hit from behind.
- We had to buy a new (used) car.
- After being blown off by a local neurosurgeon, Kristin was diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation by doctors in New York.
- We went to New York for consultation in June and surgery in September to correct the Chiari Malformation.
- Luke began wearing a patch to correct his lazy eye.
- Emma began tennis lessons.
- We skipped the chili party.
- My grandmother developed a blood clot in her brain. Then she broke her shoulder.
- The Lid Twisters got a new drummer.
- Luke learned to ride a two wheeler.
- We only went camping once.
- My nephew Taylor turned 16 years old.
- Our computer crashed before I had a chance to save my digital pictures.

- We remodeled our kitchen.
- We had a sewer back-up in our basement forcing us to remodel that as well.
- Our cat died.
- Luke taught himself to read.
- Emma taught herself to swim.
