Recap: Enjoyment of 2009

The enjoyment I have found this week is in looking back on 2009. Here is a list of the good, the bad, the pretty and the ugly.

1. 2009 started off quiet. By March, my life was a whirlwind of doctors and medical terms because of my father's cancer.

2. Summer got underway with the kids and I was officially hired on at my company.

3. July brought our nephew's wedding and week in Alabama. We had a great time and a highlight was going to The Shed in Mississippi. If you ever get a chance to go...DO IT!

4. School started up in a flurry of band camp, football practices, high school and junior high. It was a big adjustment for all of us.

5. The fall saw a lot of football, Allie's first homecoming dance (which she looked beautiful), and news that my dad's cancer was gone!

6. Now we are at the end of the year. I pray that 2010 will bring more happiness, wealth and fun for my family and yours.

2009 was not a bad year, but a year for me to contemplate a lot of things, especially about my family. I will not predict anything, but am hopeful that the new year will bring us health, happiness and lots of adventures!

Wacky Palm Tree

I am going to end the year on a good note. I am going going to make some New Year's Resolutions that I think I will try and follow. 1) I will participate or create a week day post. 2) I will look at other's posts on a weekly/daily basis.

I need to come up with what I can or want to post about.

Monday - will be Menu Planning on Monday
Tuesday - will be What did you do over the weekend?
Wednesday - will be wacky things my family does.
Thursday - what are you thoroughly enjoying this week?
Friday - Friday Five List

So I hope I can keep it going through. So today I will talk about something wacky my family member has done.

My husband always gets me an unusual Christmas gift. This year it was a lighted palm tree. I totally love it! It is suppose to be for our deck that he talks about redoing, but I am keeping it in the living room for now. It is not what I asked for, but it is such a cool present. So when people ask me what I got for Christmas, I say...a lighted palm tree!
