Goodbye 2009/Hello 2010!

I was going to try and write some elegant post about how 2009 royally sucked and how 2010 is gunna be so much better but what good would that do. Instead we will do a little review and then maybe talk about the future.

I spent a most of the year looking like this:
And this:
And then the end of the year enjoying this:
And this:
And this:
2009 was not all bad. I was pretty miserable for at least half of it but who isnt miserable being that pregnant lol. But last year brought me a blessing in my little man. I will always look back on 2009 just as i look back on 2004, 2005 and 2006 as the most blessed and wonderful years of my life.

We had financial trouble just like the rest of the world did. We fought over which bills should be paid and which could be skipped this month. Even now as the New Year begins we find ourself overloaded in debts and behind on bills. But 2010 also brings income taxes which will help us catch up on what we need to.

This year will be filled with milestones. Of course there will be lots from my little bug. First words, first foods, first vacations, first meetings of distant family, first steps, first crawls, a first birthday, and many many more. Also this year will bring us a milestone for Phabian. He will be turning 5 in March. I can no longer refer to him as a preschooler. He will start elementary school in the fall, kindergarten which is all day long.
I am not completely sure what this year hold for us. I am sure there will be lots of tears both of sadness and joy. I am sure there will be lots of smiles. I know there will be happy moments and moments of sadness. There will be milestones met with bittersweet feelings as i watch my baby bug grow and my other 2 boys start new chapters in their lives.

So here is to 2009 and all it brought and to 2010 and all it will bring. I learned a lot of lessons and i just know there are many more to be learned this year. And as for resolutions i will leave those to everyone else. Me, i am just going to work on being a better me all around. No specifics and no pressure.

Try to let go of the financial stress, I regret that so many of my memories are colored by thinking about that for me.

You have been truly blessed this year in all the ways that truly matter.

I hope 2010 is full of wonderful things for you.
