2009 is finally upon us

Hello, everybody. I know it's been nearly a month.

Here's a bullet list of what we've been up to:
  • Thanksgiving with my parents.
  • Black Friday for Brian.
  • Preparing for Christmas, which included crochetting many, many scarves, stamping tags, baking cookies, making candy, and trying to keep most of our Christmas gifts low key and handmadeif possible.
  • Going to the doctor and finding that I had ovulated this cycle (yay!). Then waiting while my body began to do weird things. Breaking my promise to be rational and not get my hopes up.
  • Christmas Eve with my mom's family.
  • Christmas Day with Mama, Daddy, Little Bro, and Sweet Lizzy.
  • Brian's parents here from December 26-29. It was great to visit with them! We missed his sisters, though. AnchorGirl and CopGuy live so far away it's ridiculous, and Nurse Baileys was sick as a dog. And had bowl game tickets. A WVU game while you have the flu is still a WVU game, people.
  • Hill Christmas on December 26th. Brian's parents went along, and it was a ton of fun.
  • A very laid back few days of work.
  • New Year's Eve with some family, playing Apples to Apples (which I will be buying!).
  • New Year's Day spent sewing and being lazy.
  • One last Friday of easy work.
What we have to look forward to:
  • Inventory for Brian at work. Yuck!
  • A cool experience taking a class together next weekend (details will come eventually).
  • Christmas with The Bum and the Yaya Princess.
  • A recital for my piano students in February.
And, here's a sampling of what I plan to enjoy this weekend since I'm
officially Not Pregnant this month:

Well, there you have it. A very busy month. I'm hoping to write on a more regular basis this year, but I also hope to get my house In Order and Clean. You may see me organizing closets like a mad woman in the coming weeks. Stand back! Or come help.....
