Happy New Year

It's 2010! Christmas break is over and it's time to get back to the grind. I can't believe it went so fast...actually, I can't believe 2009 went so fast.

2009 was the year that I got my master's degree. It was the year that Dan ended his teaching career and started his MBA program. We celebrated our 2 year anniversary by watching movies and then going to bed early because Dan was sick. We traveled to Fredericksburg, San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas (TX), Beaver Creek (CO), and I also went to New York City. I ran my second marathon. I learned that I am allergic to shellfish and therefore it was the last year that I will have ever (knowingly) eaten shrimp, scallops, or any of their cousins. We got to know people from our church better and were part of a great small group. We also made lots of new friends through Dan's MBA program.

Our favorite shows were Lost, Glee, Top Chef, and 30 Rock. The best movies we saw were The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Away We Go, Slumdog Millionaire, and Marley and Me, . My favorite books I read were "Awareness" by Anthony DeMello, "Searching for God Knows What" by Donald Miller, and "The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger.

2009 was the year that Dan and I really settled into being married. A lot of the previous year was spent learning how to live together. We had trouble settling on how clean our apartment needed to be, what we ate for dinner every night, and those kinds of things. We had pretty much worked those things out and therefore 2009 was spent still working on our marriage but more fine-tuning. I no longer leave my towels laying on the floor (too often) and Dan no longer complains (much) when we have a meatless meal. Oh, and he takes the dog out every morning. :)

So here we are again at the beginning of a new year. I wonder what this year will bring?
