Well, here it is 2010 and I've got nothing to show for it. Just kidding. I'm glad to see 2009 leave us as it was a difficult year for us. DH was unemployed from June until the end of August, making it a financial nightmare that we are still recovering from. I assume this will get better as the new year goes on. We had the typical illnesses in the house and the kids were generally happy.

Christmas was an uneventful one. Kids got what they wanted, DH and I got an unexpected gift from his mother and we are grateful to her for it. Had a nice Christmas Day dinner with my mom and spent sometime with her. New Year's Eve came and went without fanfare. I just cannot stay up that late anymore and haven't been able to since I had kids. My daughter spent the night at a friends house and stayed up until 5 am and was up until her normal bedtime, but she also slept in until 10:45 this morning to make up for it. LOL

DH and Sam have been sick for the last few days. Had to take Sam to Urgent Care, as his doctor was unavailable, they diagnosed him with ear infections in both ears and possible strep. So on antibiotics he goes and hopefully he will be fully recovered by the 4th (when they go back to school) I feel bad that most of his vacation he was sick for but I guess it's better than missing school during the regular hours. Hopefully, no one else will get sick and we make it through the next couple of weeks illness-free. Fingers Crossed!

I stitched most of the afternoon on the 2nd and got a lot done. I will post a picture in the next couple of days. It's going much faster now that the ugly green color is done with for the time being. Other than that, everyone goes back to school and work on Monday. YIPEE! I think I need a vacation.

I'll post again soon.
Happy New Year!

Sorry to hear that DH and Sam have been sick.
I also am so happy 2009 is gone.
Glad to hear you are stitching up a storm... Cannot wait to see pics.

I also am so ready for kids to go back to school.... although, half of mine go back on the 4th and the other half the 5th.

Sounds like you stitch as I do, in fits and starts. Enjoyed reading your blog. (Sherry - KYK)

Sounds like you stitch like I do, in fits and starts - kind of as the spirit moves me. 2009 was a rough year; I'm also glad it's gone. Sadly, it takes me another year away from my mom and died who both passed on in the 90s.

Hope everyone is well soon - and hope this year is better than last for you. :)
