Better L-eight than never....

I'm going to start today with my top 8 in '08. If I can. My memory is really short, though...

Without further ado, and in no specific order:

  1. How incredibly sad that this is making my list, but I am thrilled to report to you all that there have been no more spiders on my shower curtain since I changed to a clear curtain. Come to think of it there have been no more 2-legged peeping toms either, but I'm coming to terms with that. And making myself back into peeping tom shape is one of my resolutions.
  2. We went on an adult's only holiday, and while some parts of it weren't exactly delightful, it was nice to get away!!! 
  3. I also got to go to Disneyland in May with 36 junior high kids for their Tour Band trip. I think the adults had FAR more fun than the kids did!
  4. Leon graduated into the Edmonton Fire Department this year after trying for four years! 
  5. I met some FABULOUS bloggers! I was awarded several times, and each one totally delighted me! I won some great stuff, too! I even got to be one of Candid Carrie's field trip desinations!  I hope in 2009 to meet at least a few of you in person! How cool would THAT be??
  6. I took some time to reflect on the past, and it didn't even kill me, nor did it hurt, very much.
  7. One word. Soccer. Yup. Soccer.  An absolute highlight of every week, times 2. I love it. It's getting me off my ever-expanding rear end and I'm having fun and making me a priority and showing the kids that I find exercise a priority. My girls now play soccer too, and Leon coaches. We've made it a family thing that we can all do together, watch, play and cheer!
  8. Last, of course, is watching my friends and family grow through another year. And no, I didn't mean that in any derogatory sense. We all just get better, and better with each passing year. Naturally.

All the best to you all in 2009!

That was a great post Rhonda and the thing I like the most is the soccer and you saying you are setting an example for your girls! That is so positive! Congrats to Leon too. Sounds a positive year and I am sure there will be an even better one this year.

I liked reading about your last year, since I hadn´t read your blog that long. But I am here to stay and wish you success in your aspirations for the new year!

Oh, the junior high band trips. Remember them well, although the fanciest amusement park we ever went to was Busch Gardens. You're pretty fancy-pants to go all the way to Disney! Oh, and I went on chorus trips, too. Fun times!
