Revisiting 2009

It feels like just yesterday that I was posting a picture of my elliptical and saying that it would be my best friend for 2009. Ha, that sure didn’t happen did it? I don’t typically make New Years resolutions, but I do have some things that I would like to work on this year. Such as cooking my family better meals (less fast food!) and doing some sort of physical activity at least 3 days a week (start small!) Ken has vowed to stop smoking again, lets hope he sticks with it this time. The kids have all promised to be on their best behavior and listen to Ken and I at all times. Yeah right!

For NYE we went to dinner at Sakura’s with a bunch of friends and then we all came back to our house. We had fun just hanging out with everyone.

Many people have done a review of 2009 on their blogs. I thought I would post one too, but I am going to do it a little different and pick what specific entry from the month that I want, rather than picking the first one like others have. If you want to read the entire entry, just click on the read more link after each blurb.
