>Buh-bye 2009. Not sad to see ya go. Don’t let the door hit ya in the butt on the way out.
Friend of mine on Facebook posted a status that asked you to name one thing that brought you joy in 2009. Danged if I could think of an event. Oscar went to the Rainbow Bridge in February; I spent the summer in Audit Hell; and the fall has brought a series of family, friend and business challenges. I mean, I’m thankful for my family, for my friends, and for my church, and heaven only knows where I’d be without them… but thinking of one event that just brought me incredible joy during the year??? I got nothin. Maybe my memory is just too short.
So I’m looking forward to 2010. Granted, like every year it starts with tax season — that’s just an occupational hazard. I knew the job was dangerous when I took it (to quote Super Chicken — and that’s a cartoon from the 70’s that’s way underrated in my book). We’re anticipating some changes… don’t know what hubby’s company is going to do in terms of keeping his division, and of course, some of my client base remains fluid.
We’re hoping to take an actual vacation this year. We’ve missed our trip to Highlands for two years now: in 2008 Oscar was too frail to make the journey, and in 2009 Penny was too young. It would do both of us a lot of good to get away for a weekend.
Resolutions? Yeah. Gave that up awhile back. Except I’m going to try to stitch and knit more out of my stash this year (yeah, I know… I have clients that pay me with store credit… and Stitches South is coming back and the siren’s song of the marketplace will be overwhelming). I’m going to try to stick to the Quick Weight Loss Plan (down 14 so far since Nov 2 — not as quick as they’d like, but I’m living with it). I’ll try to be more diligent with my Bible study. And I’ll try to be a better friend. My friends are my family that I’ve chosen.
So to everyone who takes the time to read my blog… I wish you health and happiness in the New Year. Be safe. And here’s to a better 2010!!
