A new year…

Since I was off in the chilly, snowy north while the world (and blogging world) were ringing in the new year, I decided I’d take the time to do what everyone else has done. My list of the best and worst of 2008. The reasons I’m sad to see the year end, and more than happy to see it go.

The best of 2008

  • The hubs and I enjoyed our first full year of wedded bliss, and our first full year of home ownership. Both went well, without any major improvements or repairs necessary in either area. :)
  • I left the country again for the second time in over ten years, and got to see Costa Rica for the first time. I celebrated my own marriage and one of my best friend’s marriages there.
  • I regained my sanity by giving birth control the boot, and I’ve been enjoying my hormone-free life ever since. AND I’ve managed no accidents in the meantime.
  • I signed up for, trained for and completed the Breast Cancer 3-Day. One of the biggest accomplishments of my life thus far.
  • The husband was hired for a dream job, and I FINALLY got a promotion after almost 5 years at my current job and 2.5 years in my current position. (The promotion just happened a couple weeks ago – I haven’t even had a chance to blog about it yet!)
  • Got a new tattoo.
  • Voted in an election for a candidate I really cared about, and actually had him win.
  • I got bangs, and they actually work.

The worst of 2008

  • I’ve gained over 10 pounds. It shows no sign of letting up either.
  • We’ve spent over FIVE THOUSAND dollars on our cats’ health this year. And thus nearly doubled our credit card debt.
  • My aunt passed away after a 3 year battle with breast cancer.
  • I lost a whole bunch of money with the economy in the shitter.

Here’s to you, 2009. Let’s make it a better year than 2008. :)
