End of a year, End of a decade.

I must admit that I am not too sad to say goodbye to 2009. It wasn't the kindest year for our family. The brightest spot was Jeff landing a permanent job. While we're so very thankful for that, we are still deep in debt and being hounded by collectors from the 12 months he was un and under employed. Here's to hoping 2010 is a better year for us financially.

Saying goodbye to a decade that has had so very many changes for us. 2000 brought the birth of Gabby. 2002 we purchased our first house. 2003 we welcomed Natalie and 3 of our 4 cats. It has definitely been a decade of additions and life changing events. I look forward to the next decade and hope we can be as blessed in our family.

It's officially a blizzard out there, and it is forecast to be one for the next 24+ hours. 2nd snow day of the season for the kids today and I am almost 100% positive there will be another one tomorrow too. I've spent the morning shoveling the slush from overnight before it could refreeze and make a chunky mess at the end of the driveway. I expect several inches (or feet??) to shovel by the morning too. Welcome to winter (and it is still technically fall for another week or so).
