Its here!!!!! 2010 has arrived but before its in full swing let me discuss everything I think I've learned from 2009.
In December I profited from using sister's BFF's Martha Stewart's awesome list that helped me get through the holidays.
November taught me to place ribbons and the like in their proper places so that Sox won't be tempted to play with them thus leading mi esposo and I with hefty vet bills.
October brought a wonderful lesson home litterally, although trick or treaters did not come to my house my family would always play the part for me to fulfill my holiday needs.
September reminded me why I liked school when I enrolled and later successfully passed the course and earning two certificates!
August was a dream come true as mi esposo tooke me to a land I had only imagined as a child, the home of Anne of Green Gables. I also learned I prefer driving at 110 mph versus 110 kph, those Canadians with their speed limits need to adjust it a bit especially on the open roads. :)
July showed me that bugs were still my enemy and that next year in Spring I will begin my hunt for the new belt buckle/clip to keep them away. It better work!!!!
June bbq seasons is wonderful and the best time to have people over to my house since I've learned to keep the freezer stocked with hamburgers and hotdogs, a crowd pleaser for all ages.
May revealed another wonder of my home. I hate doing the dishes. I despise it actually. In May thought I'll do them happily, not joyously but happily as I'm able to admire the view from my window, the beautiful tulips that grace my neighbor's lawn.
April introduced me to a new author, Kate DiCamillo. I now have four books by the author that will remain in my collection forever! Thank you sister.
March I watched a remake of a childhood favorite movie. I still prefer the original but the remake was a delight and you know what I never made the official swap with my sister but I think she has enjoyed some other pieces I made that ended up in her purse after all.
February my first ever niece turned nine, I couldn't believe it. This year she's going to be ten. Paramedics might need to be called to her party when it finally hits me that she'll be double digits. I might faint.
January last year I was with mi esposo and his family visiting my father-in-law in the hospital after he suffered a major heart attack. We thought we were going to lose him as it was pretty touch and go at times. I'm so happy to say he recovered very well and is still around to bother his wife, my lovely mother-in-law today.
What a year it has been, and after writing the above I realize 2009 was the year of revisitng my childhood.
