The Hit List - My year in review: 2022

2022 was a year. Am I right? I was doing my annual yearly review and whew….so much happened.

Here’s some of my highlights and lowlights from 2022:

:: I published two books. Twist Your Fate – Manifest Success with Astrology and Tarot plus Create Your Own Tarot Cards (a joint project with Adrianne Hawthorne). I keep saying I’ll slow down my writing but I have a few projects dropping next year…gulp.

:: Yes, I wrote more books. 2023 is gonna be lit – as in literature!

:: I taught a slew of cool classes over on Patreon.

:: I fell down a flight of stairs and messed up my foot. It took me months to heal and I still have some side effects from that tumble. Moral of the story: don’t fall.

:: I replaced some old crowns and got two wisdom teeth removed. OUCH.

:: My bathroom got remodeled. I even put some eucalyptus in the shower – which smells so divine!

:: I visited the Prince exhibit in Chicago with my best friend, Simone. We had the BEST time!

:: We got a new tenant. Actually, she’s an old tenant who moved back when the space became available. If you saw the spot, you’d want to live there too. 

:: I began closing down my podcasts to focus more on writing. I still have a few more episodes to load up for Astrology Bytes but that will have to happen in January. I’m too busy.

:: I traveled out East for book signings and met my publishers at Weiser and a bunch of online friends too! Yay! I also ate a lobster roll and visited Salem!

:: My stupid email server went kablooey and I was forced to move to a new one. I’m STILL digging out of that mess. Grrrr…..

:: I covered up my old tattoo with a giant anatomical heart!

:: I got a Peloton! This helped to rehabilitate my body after the fall – but also: I lost some weight! Yay! I have about ten pounds to go.

:: Lastly, I found out I am going to be a grandparent. I am OVER THE MOON. No matter what went down in 2022, this makes it my best year ever. Double yay!

Okey doke – that’s my 2022. How about you? What went down or up? What are you looking forward to in 2023?
