Bye Bye 2009 & Hello 2010

I can't believe how fast 2009 flew by. So much happened during 2009, and most of it was NOT good. The economy was crappy and while our gas prices and bills went up, the government said our cost of living did not...HUH? So...hubby's job said no cost of living increases or any other raises. GRR!

On to other 2009 facts...
My daughter (future FBI), finished elementary school by earning the President's Award for Academic Excellence!
We went to Seattle for a 10 day vacation and to visit with my hubby(chefy)'s family. The best part was our Twilight trip to Forks, La Push, and Port Angeles, WA.
We took over a thousand vacation photos, including one of Future FBI with Edward(well a cut out anyway)LOL!
This fall Future FBI started Middle School and we found out how different it really was from Elementary! The good thing is that she is thriving and making mostly A's with an occasional B.
Chefy has been a lot healthier, but he did work a lot of hours and had to take over all the driving responsibilities from me.
My health was crappy in '09. I was hospitalized 5 times, for a total of 30 days! I contracted MRSA 3 years ago and continue to have flare ups. When they occur, my blood sugars go off the chart, so I have to get IV antibiotics and insulin shots. My fibromyalgia gives me a lot of pain, as well as the arthritis I have in most of my joints. My rheumatologist has diagnosed me with something called Sjogrens Syndrome. We'll be working on treating that in the months to come. My episodes have gotten worse, so I no longer drive. I have sudden onset episodes of sleepiness, that includes heavy yawning and fatigue. I have no idea when I fall asleep, and I know I nodded off once at the wheel. After that, I hung up my keys! I'm praying that 2010 will give me some type of diagnosis and treatment!

I'm glad to see 2009 go into the history books and I have faith that 2010 will be better!
I am planning to blog more in 2010 and will also be holding my first ever blog giveaway! I'm very excited about that and about this year as a whole! Thanks for reading and I hope you will continue to follow my blog!
Happy New Year and May God Bless You All!
