Year in Review 2008

Sorry for my lazy blogging! Here's my Year in Review for 2008. I did this for the first time this past year and think I'll make it a yearly tradition.

1. What did you do in 2008 that you'd never done before? I started my Partylite business.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth? My friend just had a baby on Christmas eve!!

4. Did anyone close to you die? Thankfully, no....but we did have a few friends who met their Savior this year...not terribly close, but still difficult!

5. What countries did you visit? None...bummer!

6. What would you like to have in 2009 that you lacked in 2008? More space for our family of 5!

7. What dates from 2008 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? None, really...that's why I need to blog--so I can remember more!

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year? Getting my Partylite business going.

15. What song will always remind you of 2008? The Prayer

16. Compared to this time last year, are you:happier or sadder? Much happier...probably because I'm trusting God more, not because my circumstances have changed.
