And on a personal note 2009 was pretty good for me, I got engaged, saw Britney Spears in concert, got a new job. Can't really complain overall, it's been a good year for me.

2010 is going to be a big year too with the wedding, fiance's 30th birthday, mother-in-law's 60th birthday, dad's 50th birthday, and our holiday to Japan.

Happy New Year everyone!

Someone on my facebook just announced they had a miscarriage. I mean........ really?

2009 was good and bad for me. The bad's all in the past though, and the good's all in the now so that's great.
