Good bye 2009, Hello 2010

So it's getting close to the end of 2009, here comes another New Year. Some say this is the end of the decade and others say we have to go through this year before it is officially a decade.
I am just wondering and remembering when the year 2000 was ushered in. Everyone worried about the prison doors swinging open and all the computers crashing. I would have been backing up my blog if I had one.
So what have I done in the last ten years......
I became a Grandmother
Got divorced
Remarried, found my soulmate....
Started a new career
Lost my Mom
Lost my sister
Lost my sister in law
Got a new sister in law
Learned to cross stitch
Learned to knit
Lost weight
Gained weight
Became a vegan
Stopped being a vegan (this could be the weight thing)
Started a blog
Looking forward to 2010 and blogging my heart out.......
Happy New Year!!!!

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Glad we found each other in all those things last year! Yes, my dear friend I gained that weight too. Maybe we will loose some of it this year???? But, for sure I know we'll have lots more Blog adventures to share. Hope you are warm & well this New Years Eve. Here it is 11:56 & my honey is in bed sound asleep. So, we'll celebrate together. HAPPY NEW YEAR DEAR FRIEND! HUGS Charlene

Your list...not unlike so many of us sings of sorrow and of happiness...but above all reads of a full and real life. That is what I find visiting your fabulous pages, a real and lovely person, so I hope you have a wonderful New Year, and it brings you much joy and laughter.
With love and hugs

The ebb of life within the decade. Amazing how so many have similar tides. One thing for sure...friends always make each moment more wonderful and bearable.
Happy New Year sweetness. Glad you're my friend.

Great post, Margaret - As one of my daughters would say "my life in a nutshell". It's always a blessing to visit your beautiful blog. Best wishes in 2010.

I believe the next decade will bring you happiness and much prosperity! I'm not a fortune teller or anything like that, just want to have a positive outlook. ;-) Had to chuckle a little when you said: 'lost weight, gained weight'. Maybe that's been with most of us? Anyway, Happy New year dear lady.

So much in a decade, for you.
It really does seem to have gone very fast, I know that.

Thank you for your friendship.
May I wish you a wonderful year ahead, with much love, joy and happiness, good health and many blessings.

Just read that you were a vegan but no longer....are you a vegetarian still? I've often thought that I'd have a hard time going all the way and cut all dairy!
