Hello 2009: Happy New Year!

Now that 2008 has officially left the building, it’s time to party like it’s 2009!

Hope you are all having a safe, silly celebratory good time!

I’d like to make a toast to good times, great comments & a very bloggy new year!

I’ll leave you with this questionare that I saw at Simple Mom…

20 Questions For a New Years Eve Reflection:

1. What was the single best thing that happened this past year? I’d have to say finally getting pregnant – it seems like we were trying forever, but we did it & I’m now 10 1/2 weeks pregnant!

2. What was the single most challenging thing that happened? Deciding that babysitting my friend’s three year old son several days a week really wasn’t working for me like I’d thought it was – and then telling her – it all worked out fine, but learning that wasn’t easy and doing something about it was even harder.

3. What was an unexpected joy this past year? We finally bought a Wii this Fall – we totally hadn’t planned to, but the money was there and we realized we had to go for it!

4. What was an unexpected obstacle? Any of the several plumbing incidents we had in the apartment this year – thank god for maintenance!

6. Pick three words your spouse would use to describe your 2008 (don’t ask them; guess based on how you think your spouse sees you). pregnant, healthy, successful

7. Pick three words your spouse would use to describe their 2008 (again, without asking). hard-working, successful, quick
