Generally, I'm not unhappy to see 2009 in the rear view mirror. It was a year of ups and downs.
The majority of it was occupied by real estate dealings - selling one house and buying another.
It was a year of new starts - the birth of my third niece and the hatching of this blog.
It was a year of promise and promises - not enough of them realized or kept.
2009 began with a sense of cautious optimism and ended with a sense of optimistic caution. Make of that what you will, it sounds cool.
Our hope for 2010 is that of a year filled with delight, pleasant surprises, surmountable challenges, and always love.
Enjoy your 2010, it's the only one you get.
