2009 Year in Review.... from Aunt Becky

Got this from Aunt Becky.... 

1. What did you do in 2009 that you’d never done before?

I graduated with my MBA in Accounting in April.
I became an aunt for real in June.
I remodeled a bathroom.
I began redecorating a living room.

2. Did you keep your New Year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

I don’t do resolutions. I suck like that. ;)

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

Oh my word, yes. My sister in law, my BFF since 6th grade, and several other friends! Another BFF is due in several weeks, and countless other friends are due within like first quarter 2010.

4. Did anyone close to you die?

Yes. Mr. Man’s Grandmother. Someday soon I may write a post about that.

5. What would you like to have in 2010 that you lacked in 2009?

The willpower to lose this weight and not be such a lardass.

6. What countries did you visit?

Just this one. And the lil make believe land in my head.

7. What date from 2009 will remain etched upon your memory, and why:

I got nothing. The year was a fricken blur.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?

Academically, graduating with my MBA. Personally, I stopped obsessing about marriage. And decided Fuck It. I don’t need it. I am perfectly capable of raising my daughters alone, and strong enough to make them understand that the way I live, is not necessarily whats best. And that I choose to live this way because it is always, always, always better than getting abused by some fucking man.

9. What was your biggest failure?

I yell too much.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?

Oddly enough, no.

11. What was the best thing you bought?

Hmmmmmmmm…….. Probably the billion books I bought this year. Now, 2010 is gonna be a different story… I have a list of shit I’m GONNA get.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?

My own. See above MBA graduation.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?

Mr. Man. My 4 year old and her temper.

14. Where did most of your money go?

House payment, car payment, etc etc etc

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?

The bathroom remodel being done. The living room being repainted (I’ve been waiting for 8 months)

16. What song will always remind you of 2009?

I’m not sure. This year does not have a theme song to me.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:

i. happier or sadder? Happier. Apathy is a blessing

ii. thinner or fatter? Fatter.

iii. richer or poorer? Richer.

18. What do you wish you’d done more of?

Relaxing with my babies.

19. What do you wish you’d done less of?

Yelling. Rushing.

20. How will you be spending Christmas?

Spent it with the family of course.

21. There was no #21. I don’t know why there was no 21.

I’ll (aunt becky) make up my own question here, then. Hmmm.

Name one random thing that people would be surprised to know about you.

My life is an open book. I got nothing. I have 3 tattoos. How bout that????

22. Did you fall in love in 2009?


23. How many one-night stands?


24. What was your favorite TV program?

Greys. Biggest Loser. Anything I found the time to actually WATCH.

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year?

Hmmmmm, no.

26. What was the best book you read?

I cant pick just one. I read probably 200 books this year. I love books.

27. What was your greatest musical discovery?

That I suck at Guitar Hero????

28. What did you want and get?


30. What was your favorite film of this year?

New Moon. Yea, I am one of those. Team Edward. **drool**

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?

I turned fucking 30. YUUUUUUUUUUUUCK. And ON my birthday? I went to my parents house. My mom made dinner. Then I went home. And sat on my ass. Lol. The night before my bday I went to the bar with my 2 PREGNANT BFF’s. yes, pregnant. My life is fucking amazing. HA.

32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?

More time with my kids. Less time working my freaking ass off.

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2009?

Whether or not I could squeeze my expanding ass into it.

34. What kept you sane?

The web. For sure.

35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?

None really.

36. What political issue stirred you the most?

I stay the HELL out of politics.

37. Whom did you miss?

The ME that isn’t so effing busy. The ME from 2 years ago that weighed 50lbs less. The ME that could relax.

38. Who was the best new person you met?

I cant think of anyone I actually *met* this year. The newest people that make me smile? All the hundreds of people in my google reader 

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

When someone tells you that you can’t do something, the very best thing to do is to prove them gleefully wrong. (sorry, aunt becky, I have GOT to agree here. Hands fucking down.)

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:


So what I'm still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don't need you
And guess what
I'm havin more fun
And now that were done
I'm gonna show you tonight
I'm alright
I'm just fine
And you're a tool so
So what
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don't want you tonight
-Pink, So What.
