2009 recap

Wow, looks like I kind of forgot I had a blog! This recap is going to be short and sweet.

On the home front, we spent a wonderful year with Lexi and I can't imagine life without her. We adopted another mini Dachshund the week before Christmas. She is a cutie and a handful! We've had so much snow on the ground here since we got her that she really hasn't gotten to do much but eat, sleep, and play inside with her sister. I can't wait until the weather warms up this Spring so that we can do more with her outside.

DH hurt his back in March 2009 and after visits to the surgeon and pain doctors there is not much they can do for him but keep him on pain meds. This led to him going on temporary disability at the end of June and then getting laid off in November. He then got on permanent disability from the company he worked for which was such a blessing. We were really concerned about how we would make ends meet if that didn't happen.

Good news is that I got a promotion in June and have had some wonderful changes happen for me at work. The position is new so I'm having to feel things out as I go along but I really am enjoying it. Unfortunately I got sick the week of Christmas and have had a cold, sinus infection, and now a stomach virus so the last three weeks I have spent more time in bed than at my desk. I'm praying I can be over this mess now.

On the knitting front, I haven't gotten much done this past year. I finished 13 projects. A few of those were baby items including my second baby sweater for a coworker. I only knit 3 pair of socks which was below my goal but I still enjoy knitting socks so I'm sure I'll crank some out this year.
