2008 for me was much more low-key than 2007, that's for sure! I found a lot of great things in 2008 - a job that I really like, a brand new neighborhood that I wanted to be in before any ground was broken - and moved into in October, and pieces of myself that I thought I had lost. I passed the one-year anniversary of my aunt dying, and made it through. I still miss her every day, but am thankful for the family that I have left that have filled the giant void that was left with her passing. In that same respect, it was 10 years last month since my mother died. Wow.

And speaking of 10 years - was it only 10 years ago that we were going to party like it's 1999?

I found some new, great friends (and kept a lot of old great ones, too!), and realized that some that I thought were friends really weren't, but that's OK - I recognize it for what it is, and don't let it bother me. I found my way back to school after taking a semester off, and still love it! In general, life is good. :)

I found that I still kind of enjoy "poking the beast" with the "Barb" in my life. That whole situation is worth a giggle or twelve, and I'm finding that "forgive and forget" isn't in the cards for her just yet.

But all that aside, I found that blogging is fun! It's a great way to keep in touch with friends and family, and I have found some new great blogger buddies!

Here's to a healthy, happy 2009 for everyone! Happy New Year!!

You have had a good, transformative year. I'm glad you started blogging and I'm glad you are ending the year by going back home! Happy New Year, Kathy!

It's been a great year all around. Now if I could just get my secret service man to come back. LOL Being home was the best way to end the year, and I'm have the best time. I think that I may stuff little Miss Leah in my purse when I leave and take her home with me! And Happy New Year to you too, E!!

I know! Can't live with 'em (shouldn't have to) and can't shoot 'em. What's a gal to do?
