A New Year

Okay, so this was all supposed to be posted yesterday…that didn’t happen, obviously...

This year has been a long one, I’d like to wrap it up nice and securely, move onward into a bright and promising new one! I’m going to do my own Top “Whatever” Lists. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do…:D Since I can’t do anything without music, I think we’ll start there, and it’s a good fun way to start as well.

Top Music for 2010, these are not songs that came out this year, these are my top songs for the year.

Sara Schiralli-Bang Bang

Bitter:Sweet-Don’t Forget to Breath

Damien Rice-Delicate

Metisse-Boom Boom Ba

Danny Elfman-The Little Things

Vampire Weekend-Giving Up the Gun

Black Eyed Peas-Pump It

Fatboy Slim-Push the Tempo

There are many, many more, but I wanted a mix and I am definitely missing some I’d love to toss up here…but it’ll do…also worth noting that some of these are songs I’ve been listening to for little while and they just stick through time with me.

Memorable Moments:
  • Birth of Kyle
  • Isaac’s surgery for tubes
  • Isaac’s 3rd birthday
  • Mother/Father’s Day
  • Five-year wedding anniversary
  • Halloween
  • Christmas (still ongoing, and the best one in 6 years, on top of being Kyle’s first, family first and Isaac’s best!)
Things I’ve learned:
  • You can literally be sick all the way through a pregnancy.
  • You truly don’t know who the sociopath is until it’s too late.
  • All babies are different, and more so then they let on!
  • When it rains, it pours, literally and figuratively!
  • You truly can do without some people, and can’t do without others.
  • Friendship can keep one sane, especially if they are as insane as you.
  • I’m a genius, you just don’t know yet.
  • Children are the best hobby a person can have!
  • I need music, more then I ever realized.
  • I’m freaking awesome.
Now I'm not much for resolutions...I think one shouldn't define an entire year by a few measly resolutions when it could be so much more. Though, there always has to be some sort of starting point. You can't end what you haven't begun.
New Year Resolutions:
  • Start business
  • Continue to lose weight, or stay where I am...
That's all...hahaha, for now!
