Year in Review

Found this on another blog and thought I'd give it a try.....

1. What did you do in 2007 that you'd never done before?
I learned how to make homemade jelly!

2. Did you keep your New Year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year? I didn't, and I haven't.

4. Did anyone close to you die? Thankfully, no.

5. What countries did you visit? Canada

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year? Maintaining my sanity :)

9. What was your biggest failure? There are many....

11. What was the best thing you bought? My dishwasher - Thanks Mom and Dad Gearhart!

20. What was the best book you read? Pretense by Lori Wick - this was a rare re-read for me...but very good.

21. What was your favorite film of this year? Don't have one.

22. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2007? Simple. The first half of the year was Maternity clothes, the last half was trying to get out of them!

23. What kept you sane? My trips to the grocery store, coffee, keeping in touch and confiding in friends near and far.

24. What political issue stirred you the most? I don't know that any ONE stirred me....

Number 22 is the best! You crack me up even online! So glad to "hear" about all the great things of last year. Wish we could see you all. Our kids would have the best time playing together! :)
