cheryl: Look at 2009 and goals for 2010

By popular demand I’m finally updating our blog. Thanks for the extra push Candice! We’ve been very lazy here.

Let see, 2009 was a very busy year for us. I finished my associates degree at the end of 2008 so my year has been busy discovering hobbies of knitting, spinning, crocheting and starting  my own businesses at http://masoncj.etsy.com and http://indenturedmason.etsy.com. I attended a spinning class, bought a loom and spinning wheel, and joined the Social Committee at work that plans company events like the picnic at Sunsplash and Christmas party.

In February James finished his bachelor  degree and turned 28. From my observations he seems to be spending all of his time playing games on his ipod Touch and now his Play Station 3. Maybe I can persuade him to blog this weekend from his perspective, hint hint!

Anyway, this year has been really busy for us with bigger and smaller activities. We started with graduations and friends with new babies, James birthday in February, Easter in Paradise with Grandma Betty, a new couch in May and a wonderful vacation to Maui, Cheryl’s birthday and seeing the play The Lion King in June and James cousin Chris Pappas’ wedding and his cousin Kacey Sargent’s baptism at Leoni Meadows, July had a fun and explosive 4th with lots of family and a Cold Play concert, farmers markets and Alpaca fairs in August and September, a Steampunk Halloween in October, 3 Thanksgivings in November and we found out our first kitty Fuzzy has lymphoma and we ended up with a 6th kitty Zoey, in December we nursed our kitties back to health from a kitty cold that Zoey shared plus attended my cousins wedding in southern California and I put together the company Christmas party and somehow managed to have Christmas gifts ready for Christmas Eve at the Driver’s and our own little Christmas at home. To finish it off we had a wonderful time on New Years Eve at the Jaqua’s.

On to 2010. Zoey looks like she is settling in nicely and James and I are getting over our colds so the new year is starting out well. Plans for the year include uncluttering the whole house and garage and finally paying off those fancy appliances that we’ve been using. Loosing weight would be a nice one too….it could happen! There is so much to look forward to this year and it is only day 2…and so incredible late er…early. Pictures are just not loading quickly so I may have to add those later. They will all be here. I’m up to June if you’re interested in browsing.
