January 2009: On January 1st I ran my first-ever 5 miles. Whew! Not sure I would have survived it without The Boy cheering me to the finish.
So who would have guessed that I would win my first-ever sports medal (for running, no less!) just a week later? This running thing gets to be a bit addictive.
February 2009: We found...and bought...our first-ever house.
June 2009: We took our first vacation in two years, heading to the countryside to vegetate and recreate with our good friends. It was a much-needed time of rest.
July 2009: More settling in, repairing the house and cooking up a storm. In short...normal life.
Looking back is pretty fun! Sometimes I feel discouraged, as though I've not accomplished much of anything in a year - letting life rush by with nothing to show for it.
I suppose that while we did get a little over-busy at times, we also did a good job of enjoying our marriage, the furbabies, our friends and our new house. And I'm pretty happy with that.
