Did you see the calendar today? Can you believe that it's December 31? I certainly can't.
So here is my obligatory year-in-review blog.
In January, we put an offer in on a house here in town. After the inspection turned up a few nasty surprises that the owners weren't willing to fix, we had to walk away. It was difficult, but for the best. The day of the inspection I saw a neighbor with a questionable pop culture figure painted on his jacket which made me uncomfortable.
In February, we celebrated my 23rd birthday. Nearly nothing else happened. Exciting, right?
March brought more house shopping. We found the house that we would eventually purchase. It is also the month that I discovered Oreo truffles. Enough said.
April brought with it an older man who offered to marry me if I ever decided that I wanted to boot my man to the curb.
In May we made the big move to our new house and busied ourselves making it into a home. It was also the month that the Mr's younger brother graduated from high school.
In June we journeyed to Missouri for Ty & Jami's wedding, which took place the day before our one year anniversary. We had wanted to go on an anniversary trip, but the Mr. was in the wedding.
July brought the Mr's 25th birthday and the 30 minute cleaning challenge.
We finally made our first trip to Chicago to our beloved IKEA in August following a visit from my parents.
In September, I found out that I had been accepted into the CNA program that I tested for in August. This is also the month that I went from working full-time down to part-time.
October was incredibly busy. I spent all morning in class, learning the ins and outs of being a CNA. I spent my afternoons doing homework and my evenings at work. My poor husband lived on turkey sandwiches and cereal.
In November, I graduated from the CNA program and began searching for a new job, which I finally found in...
...December. We also spent several days in Missouri, where we got the Malibu stuck in a snowdrift. This month we were also hit by an elderly lady who ran a red light.
It's not a very detailed review, but that's basically all that happened this year. I've been blessed with good health and a wonderful husband and family. Here's to hoping that 2010 is even better!
