I can't believe it's already the end of 2009.

Everyone's saying that, I know, but I really REALLY mean it. It went kinda fast. And now I'm going to copy a bunch of bloggers I read and give you a list of stuff that happened in my life this year. Talk about a freakin' roller coaster.

  1. I started the year freshly divorced and dating. And optimistic! Go me!
  2. I got laid off from a job I was about to quit anyway.
  3. I went to Aruba.
  4. I had bone-shortening surgery
  5. I broke up with someone. No really! I! Broke up with someone!
  6. I went back to lawyering.
  7. The man with whom I've had more chemistry than should be possible got married. I cried.
  8. I started talking about a romantic future with an old friend.
  9. Max came back to live with me.
  10. I went to Vegas with girlfriends that I never get to see.
  11. Got fired from the lawyering job.
  12. My fish died.
  13. The romantic future contemplated in #8 crashed and burned.
  14. I went back to working in hospitality and actually enjoyed it...
  15. I found out the man from #7 was expecting a baby with his wife. I sighed.
  16. I went on a few random dates, some with a friend, some with a new acquaintance.
  17. I turned 35.
  18. I went to my first Denver Broncos game, they won in overtime. It was fun.
  19. I chose NCIS and Mark Harmon over naked time with the new acquaintance.
  20. I got a new roommate.
  21. I started ANOTHER new job. On a mountain.
  22. I found a new cocktail.
  23. I saw Martina Navratilova and sold a neck warmer to Lynda Carter.
  24. While skiing, witnessed a guy crash, called ski patrol, and hung with him til they carted him away. He had the same name as my ex-husband and I didn't even push him off the mountain.
  25. I hurt my back NAPPING (yes it is possible).

So that's my year in review. Fewer life-altering events than 2008, thank the good Lord. I'm ready for 2010, looking forward to all the good things that will come my way. I have to decide by tomorrow if I will join a good friend in an experiment in swearing off men for at least part of the year... Taking the time to figure ME out. I know it's a good idea, but I'm afraid I won't stick to it. We'll see. I still have 14 hours to think about it...

I think I came in about #19. It's a funny exercise to sum up your year. I'm working on that now, and it startles me how rapid the chages were.

Taking stock is always a good thing. You've got some good things on your list; you should look forward to more good things. *smile*
