hmmmm, I have no clue!!! 

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

I didn't make any resolutions, because I am very aware of the fact that rarely do I keep to them.  This year however I am resolving to lose the last 10 pounds I have to lose from my pregnancy by March 1st!  I have some others but these I will share with you later!!!

Most of my money this year has gone to paying for my daughter's dance classes... I don't regret spending a dime because she loves it!

I try not to hate, but my ex-husband is on my I absolutely hate list this year and probably for good now! 

18. What was the best book you read?

Honestly, I haven't really read any books this year... I've been busy with the kids and life!

HP ( I love them all) but also the X-Men Origins was great too!

I went out to eat with the family... it was on a tuesday night and a week before our trip to Colombia so I couldn't afford anything big.

22. What kept you sane?

My knitting, that's about it!

23. Whom did you miss?

I missed my friend Deirdre... not sure why (actually I have a clue) but we stopped talking about 1 1/2 years ago now.

24. Who was the best new person you met?

I sadly can't name one!  But I'd say my mother-in-law, I had met her on the phone, but in person for the first time in October and she is the sweetest woman on earth!

25. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2009:

Always have your eyes open, and don't be blinded by your emotions.

AND I will second Melanie's answer "Never, ever, take your husband's love for granted"

I hope you also play along, if you do leave me a comment so I can hop over and check out your answers.

Tigers and Liars (I mean Lions) and Bears... OH MY!!!!

I had to write this post... SERIOUSLY is anyone else completely done with all the bs on Tiger Woods!?

First of all... I think the man is a scum bag for cheating on his beautiful wife with not one... no, not two... at least 7 different women!

Second... he is only sorry because he's been got!  Does anyone really believe that he is truely sorry for having had all those affairs over the last few years?

I hope Ellin is smart enough to pack her bags, pack her children, divorce Tiger and go live on her Sweedish home!  She is a beautiful woman, Lord only knows why Tiger cheated in the first place.

I do have to say, I don't understand cheating, I don't understand cheaters. If you are truely unhappy in your relationship, why not just leave?  Why do you have to hurt the other person by making them feel worthless and embarrass them by having all discover their infedelity???

Granted, I know woman cheat too... but why are men always so unconformed with a good woman they already have?

There... I've said my peace... I'm getting down off my soap box.  But I just had to get that out into cyberspace!!!

Please feel free to comment, positive or negative... is fine by me!
