Remodeled and camped in my own camping trailer
2. Did you keep your New Year's Resolutions and do you intend to make any for 2010?
I never make measurable resolutions at New Year's. I do, however, make concrete goals during the year, and I think I did pretty well with those.
3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Me, Jaime, Mackenzie.
4. Did anyone close to you die?
Not really, unless you count my parent's dog.

December 1st: Riley's birth date.
8. What is your biggest achievement of the year?
Natural childbirth. Hands down.

11. What is the best thing you bought?
LCD TV and computer tower for the living room. And the Suburban and trailer are pretty cool (although we technically didn't buy the trailer).

Politicians and celebrities.

Cooking and trying new recipes. Gardening. Watching my kids experience the world.
16. What songs will remind you of 2009 and why?
"Oh Danny Boy." First song I learned in voice lessons.
17. Compared to last year...
a. happier or sadder? Happier. New babies bring happiness with them.
b. thinner or fatter? Gained 40 pounds this year. Only 7 lbs 2 oz of that didn't belong to me.

Watching TV.
