What was 2010?

2010 was one of the best years we've had in a very long time.  2006 was the year we were married, bought our first house and the year I started my current job.  2008 was the year we brought home Gimli, went to California & Las Vegas with friends and went to Walt Disney World with a different set of friends.  2007 was nothing to write home about.

2009 was dreadful.  Aside from the good things - attended 2 weddings, bought and moved into our current house, saw Metallica there were these...

Underwent the stress of selling and moving to the in-laws, living with the in-laws for 3 lovely months, a full year of Mike's unemployment, shouldering the finances and the stress of being the sole bread winner, work suffering as a result of all these factors, plus the beginning of my migraines, which would occur sometimes 2 or 3 times a week, attending 2 funerals.

When 2010 rolled around, I was glad.  Glad to close the book on that year and move onto a new year of hopeful possibilities.

What 2009 lacked, 2010 made up for it in spades.

  • Mike started a job in January, (Thank God!)
  • Finances slowly starting to come around again
  • Went on vacation on a Disney cruise where a stingray tried to eat my finger!!!
  • Erected our gazebo in the back yard
  • Erected the fence so Gimli could play outside
  • Saw Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper!!
  • Saw Young Frankenstein - the play
  • Took Gimli to the Arboretum where we saw a coyote
  • Got to play my inner model by posing for an awesome photographer, Danny Yam!
  • Went to Chicago to see The Jim Henson Exhibit
  • Started this Blog - something I've been wanting to do for a long time
  • Went to the Pirate Festival with Zombieman where we won a raffle to stay at a haunted hotel - heading there in the Spring
  • Went to Oktoberfest
  • Saw Rammstein!!!
  • Turned 30
  • Made Christmas dinner with all the fixins twice!

As 2011 begins, I have a list of things that I'd like to accomplish in 2011.  Who knows if I'll get to them all, but at least its a start.

Lastly, a few pictures of what was 2010.
