2009 – I’m Glad it’s Leaving
Right now I’m sitting here trying not to listen to my husband who is a couple rooms away and on the phone with a crisis hotline.
I won’t say more because he reads my blog.
I can only hope that 2010 has better things in store for us than 2009 did and in all honesty, 2009 didn’t suck that much.
Hope you all have a safe and Happy New Year and may 2010 bring you nothing but good health and happiness.
While I’m waiting for him to get ready…we’re heading to my sister’s house for New Year type activities…I’ll jot down a little list of things that happened in 2009 that are significant to me. A reflection on the year, if you will.
We are now into the Land Contract of owning our house. – so yes, the house and all of the surrounding property will some day be ours! It’s a great feeling really. I didn’t mind renting, but to actually be OWNing something…it’s a good feeling.
We brought another furry bundle into our home. – while we sadly had to say goodbye to our beloved princess kitty, Beans (she is somewhere at a rescue or in foster care awating her new forever home) we adopted a kitten from the Michigan Humane Society. His official name is Cosmo, but he’s best known as Snorty or Snorts. He will be formally introduced to the interwebz soon.
My husband was officially diagnosed with Lupus. – not the best news, but helpful for his treatment. He was also put on Plaquenil, which, I’m sure, if he took properly would help him feel better.
We booked another trip to Disney World for next year. – I am SOOO excited about this! We’re going in october and staying at the Wilderness Lodge. It should be a really fun time!
My baby sister got married! – nuff said! Her wedding and reception were both beautiful and it was all kind of a whirlwind. 2 weddings in 2 years, whew! Glad they are over!
My Sister-in-Law and her family moved back to the USA from Australia. – they were there because of my BIL’s job and they were gone for 2 years. It was supposed to be a little bit longer, but with the jobs the way they are, they ended up coming home sooner than expected. I’m glad they are home though, I missed the little ones!
President Obama was sworn in. – what a wonderful time for our country. A time of hope and a time of change. He’s got a mess to clean up and I think he’s been doing as well a job as he can.
I decided to go back to school. – this is a biggie for me. I hate school in general. I just don’t like the classroom, but my job offers us 4250.00 a year for tuition!!! How could I not use it! Why wouldn’t I want to?? So I am. I’m starting at a Community College and of course the degree I’m going for is computer related. I’m nervous/scared/excited all at once.
