So, it's 2009. I hope it's happy!
Since my last post:
-I've put on five pounds (Thanks Christmas!)
-I've been to Ohio and back.
-I've been to a funeral for my grandmother's brother. (Rest in peace, Uncle Ed).
-I've celebrated Christmas twice.
-I've paid a lot of bills.
-I've read a couple books.
-I've learned to play Spades and Hearts (and now I am addicted).
-I've started playing Rock Band 2.
2008 was a horrible year for me and my family. I pray that 2009 will prove to be a better year and allow me a chance to recuperate.
I've made several resolutions. But, I will keep them to myself for now. If I accomplish my goals, I will let you know ASAP.
I am preparing a giant book order. I will be ordering in a couple days. Some items on my "to purchase" list:In the Kingdom of My Familiar
