Look at you! So cute, so fresh! I just want to pinch your little cheeks and tickle your cute little toes!
Why am I so happy to see you? Well, frankly, 2009 was one crummy year. Granted, it had some plus factors, such as, my writing career, which improved dramatically. And by dramatically, I mean I'm pretty sure my billings allowed me to cross the poverty level. And this is only my second year at it!
However, the Boy lost his job, Pa Jaracz has been in and out of the hospital more times than I care to think about, and the draftiness in our apartment won't ever seem to go away. The job loss meant that we didn't really have the money to enjoy living in a city, and let me tell you, dealing with the crappy aspects of city life just gets a person down.
Granted, the Boy recently got a new job, so we're leaving 2009 on a better note. Still, you, dear 2010, look to be a year full of promise and adventure with new beginnings. I hope (for your sake) you're good to us.
Otherwise, you'll be hearing from me in a year.
