Who gets to determine when the old ends and the new begins? Itâ€™s not on the calendar, itâ€™s not a birthday, itâ€™s not a new year, itâ€™s an event â€”big or small, something that changes us, ideally it gives us hope, a new way of living and looking at the world, letting go of old habits, old memories. What’s important is that we never stop believing we can have a new beginning, but it’s also important to remember amid all the crap are a few things really worth holding on to. -Meredith, Grey’s Anatomy
Wow, 2009 is over.Â I can’t believe what a wild year this has been. I was accepted into graduate school (but passed on it for now, still I got in, yay!), Match and I moved (twice!), Match quit his job, got another horrible job, quit that and now has a new job which we both think may just be fabulous. I lost a few friends, and gained more, I gained pounds (grr), cut ties with toxic family members, gave up my parrot to a loving family (heartbreaking, but our household is finally peaceful),Â and then I GOT ENGAGED?!
This has been an amazing year full of blessings and love, some tears but more tears of joy, and I’m so glad I’ve been able to share it with you all.Â Here’s hoping that 2010 has more fun to share with you all. Hey, it may even include a wedding if I can get the dates all figured out! So thank you, thank you all for being such a big part of my life. Happy New Year!!
