Yep, it's been a year. A year since I've been here. And to be honest, I am so glad that 2009 is over.
I can recap 09 in two words: Eff off.
In January, Chris and I went on a Mexican Riviera Cruise. We cruised with NCL, and honestly, it was meh.
In February, my husband had to relocate to Dallas to work at HQ. He would be stuck there for five months.
In April, I found out some potentially devastating news. It rocked me pretty bad and quite honestly, made me question a few things about myself and a couple of my relationships. I won't go into details, so please don't ask. The good news is that I am slowly but surely coming out of it. I haven't let it completely control my life, and I don't have that 'punched in the gut' feeling when I think about it anymore. Maybe a slap in the face, but definitely not a punch in the gut. I also had to move at the end of April into an apartment as my landlady wanted her house back.
In May, we went on a much, MUCH needed vacation with B&C and E&J to Puerto Vallarta. It was a week of bliss.
In July, we went to Cabo to attend my brother-in-law's wedding. THAT was a good time, despite the intense heat and humidity. It was also the Boy Child's first time in Mexico - and he had a blast. Chris also came home. He retired from Southwest, and took some much needed time off to decide what he wanted to be when he grew up.
In August, we took a little trip to Victoria, BC. I love Canada. I really do.
September Chris and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary.
October saw Chris getting a new job with a lumber brokerage. We also went to Wisconsin for Eric and Misty's reception. AND we bought Cresmoor - our new house.
November - we moved into Cresmoor the week before Thanksgiving.
December - Had a housewarming/my birthday/Christmas party. Lost a good friend to a tragic accident. When I think about it, I feel a huge hole. Celebrated Christmas. Thanked GOD that this year was almost over.
Yeah, yeah. It doesn't sound that bad. But trust me, I'm SO glad it's over. I'm over it!
So one of my plans (not resolution, cause that seems to jinx it) is to post at least once a week. Let's see what I can do! And feel free to call me out!
