I am far too lazy to write a post of any substance, so I'm doing a year end meme. I did the same one last year.
Was 2009 good for you? It was!
What was your favorite moment of the year? Absolutely, 100% Tommy's birth.
What was your worst moment of the year? 2009 was pretty much the year of the stomach flu for me. I had it over and over and over...
Where were you when 2009 began? Honestly, I was 12 weeks pregnant, so I'm pretty sure I was sleeping.
Who were you with? Shane and Luke
Where will you be when 2009 ends? I had hoped to spend it with Shane and friends, but we don't have a babysitter, so it looks like it'll be a quiet evening at home. Unless anyone is interested in crashing, in which case, we have lots of board games, a fully stocked bar, and a husband who makes delicious food.
Did you keep your new years resolution of 2009? My resolution was to lose my baby weight quicker than with Luke, and I totally owned at that one. My other resolution was to get my hair cut every five weeks and colored every ten because, yes, I am that vapid. And yes, I did keep it.
Do you have a new years resolution for 2010? See, I generally don't make serious resolutions because I'm pretty awesome, but maybe to reach out to people more? That'd be a good one.
Did you fall in love in 2009? Yes
If yes, with who? Tommy!
Are you still in love? Yes
Did you breakup with anyone in 2009? No
Did you make any new friends in 2009? Yes
Who are your favorite new friends? Well, I got to meet Christy in January. Shortly after, I met Beth's sister Sarah who is like my candy eating soul sister. And I met Lovelyn in July.
What was your favorite month of 2009? July
Why this month? Tommy was born.
Did you travel outside of the US in 2009? No
How many different places did you travel to in 2009? Not a lot, as I was pregnant or just given birth for most of it. We did go to Wisconsin Dells, but I think that is about it!
Did you miss anybody in the past year? Yes, I miss friends who don't live nearby.
What was your favorite movie that you saw in 2009? Julie & Julia
What was your favorite song from 2009? I'm pretty fickle with songs.
How many concerts or plays did you see in 2009? None!
Did you have a favorite concert in 2009? I'm old...and yeah. I went to none.
What was your favorite book in 2009? Oh, I don't know. I read a lot, so it's hard to pick just one book. I really liked The Innocent Man by John Grisham.
How many people did you sleep with in 2009? Three-Shane, Luke, and Tommy.;)
Did you do anything you are ashamed of this year? I'm sure I have, but nothing comes to mind immediately. I know I was not a very good mom to Luke right after Tommy was born. I was just so overwhelmed and not as patient.
What was the biggest lie you told in 2009? After Tommy was born, I told people I was taking it easy, when I really, really was not. I also said I didn't need help, when I did. Oh boy, did I ever.
Did you treat somebody badly in 2009? Yes.
Did somebody treat you badly in 2009? Yes.
What was your proudest moment of 2009? Birthing a beautiful, healthy baby boy.
What was your most embarrassing moment of 2009? My whole life is one huge embarrassing moment! The biggest was probably when Luke somehow learned the word "dammit" and decided to scream it over and over in a crowded restaurant, until I actually had to take him outside with my hand clamped over his mouth, while every old person in the restaurant glared at me.
If you could go back to any moment of 2009 and change something, what would it be? Well. I'm pretty happy with 2009, but I think I would've liked a crystal ball to know how Tommy's birth would play out so I could have just planned a home birth and had Beth and my doula there on time!
Where did you work in 2009? Middle school
Favorite TV shows(s) of 2009? Scrubs
Favorite Band(s) of 2009? I am fickle, but I forever love Sufjan Stevens.
Favorite Food in 2009? Mmm, food. I love food. Probably cupcakes. And Tagalong blizzards. And oh, french fries and Redamak's cheeseburgers and waffle cones and brownies and cookies and chocolate chip bagels with chocolate chip cream cheese. And when I was pregnant with Tommy, this restaurant by my school had a fresh fruit plate that came with raisin bread. I used to eat this at least once a week! Oh, and fried cheese. When we went to the Dells, I discovered you could get room service fried cheese curds and ate those for two days straight!
Favorite Drink in 2009? Margaritas
Favorite Place in 2009? Home, with my boys. Barring that, the park on sunny days. Oh, and anywhere with friends.
Favorite person(s) to be with in 2009? Shane, Luke, and Tommy. Also, my girls.
Favorite person(s) to talk to in 2009? See above question.
Favorite trip in 2009? Loved taking Luke to the waterpark.
Favorite stores in 2009? Sephora
Hardest thing you had to go through in 2009? Leaving Luke every day. Other than that, 2009 was amazing. I have a feeling 2010 will be harder.
Most exciting moment(s) in 2009? Tommy's birth will probably be the most exciting moment of my life. I hope so, anyway!
Funniest moment(s) in 2009? Okay, on the last day of school, myself and two of my team teachers were standing in the hall as the kids were leaving. This awful girl who gave me nothing but trouble the entire year ran past us and screamed, "I'M SO GLAD I DON'T HAVE TO BE IN YOUR F***ING CLASSES ANYMORE." And instead of being all, GASP and chasing her down, I said, "Right back at you!" and then we all started high fiving. I don't think it was the reaction she wanted, but it was hilarious.
