As the final hours of 2009 wind down, it's hard to believe it's about to be 2010. It seems like only yesterday the world was worrying about Y2K as we prepared for the year 2000. We were literally "partying like it was 1999" (yay, how long has it been since you heard THAT song!!)
Like most people, a lot has changed in my life. I've been through many, many good times, and some sad times.
In the past 10 years:
-I graduated college (in fact, my 10 year reunion is coming up next year- meaning 2010, it's still 2009 as I write this)
-I've lived in 4 different towns/cities
-I changed my hair color and style more times than I can count (although I'm proud to say I haven't dyed my hair in almost 5 years!) : )
-I mourned the loss of three close family members (R.I.P. Jack, grandma, and Uncle Claude)
-I made some wonderful new friends
-I lost touch with some wonderful old friends
-I reconnected with a few wonderful old friends
-I held 5 different jobs
-I became a great-aunt for the first time (and second, third and fourth time)
-I cried and prayed with the rest of America on 9-11-01
-I paid off my first car (meaning I bought it and made every payment all by myself).
-I went to the State Fair of Texas for the first time
-I went to New York City for the first time (flying all by myself).
-I attended my first NBA, NFL and NHL game. (if you know me, you aren't surprised I'm mentioning sports!)
These are just some of many memories. There isn't enough space here to list them all, thanks for letting me share a few.
Now, a look bad at the good, the bad and the ugly of the past 10 years (and I'm talking about my hair!) :)
