A Brief Look Back

I'm glad 2009 is over with. It was probably the hardest year I've had so far. There was a lot of stuff that happened and most of it really tested my inner strength. Unfortunately my inner strength isn't that strong. After all that happened I hope that it has made me stronger and not shaken when everything goes wrong.

2009 brought lots:
Leg pains for most the year with no explaination
My car crapping out on me freaquently and never getting fixed right
My dogs having one issue or another some time during the year
My husband being gone for about 5 months making dealing with issues harder for me
My friend moving away
Termites being found around our house
Acrobat ants invading the exterior of our home
Airconditioner breaking when it was over 100 degrees everyday and not being repaired until 4 days later
Graduation being delayed because last two classes i needed were cancelled

But also brought
2 pay raises (it helped when i needed it)
School almost done but now paid for
A new house which is way better than an apartment
Tova being neutered finally!!!!
Reviving of my interest in knitting again
Getting a gym membership (haven't used it as much as I should have)
