1. What did you do in 2009 that you'd never done before?

I went for a professional bra fitting for the first time. It was totally worth it!

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

I don't even remember if I made any, or what they were! I probably did; I usually do, and I'm sure I will make more.

3. How will you be spending New Year's Eve?

At home with my family, watching the ball drop on TV

Not this year, thank God

6. What would you like to have in 2010 that you lacked in 2009?

More financial stability, and smaller clothes!

7. What date from 2009 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

January 26th, the day I had my gastric bypass surgery. My new life began that day.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?

Losing more than 150 pounds, still counting!

9. What was your biggest failure?

Keeping up with a clean house. It just doesn't last, and I'm so unmotivated in that department!

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?

Just the surgery, which was a pretty big injury to my body - but well worth it! Oh, and we all had the flu pretty badly a month or two ago. That sucked.

11. What was the best thing you bought?

The best thing, really and truly, was saving LOTS of money on food and non-food stuff by reading couponing blogs and learning to get things really cheap or free. With our household economy, that was more important than ever this year.

Paying for that damn motorcycle that NEVER gets ridden!!! No, the mortgage, obviously, and paying off debt.

Any Michael Jackson song, probably.

Gone to the beach. Did we even GO to the beach this past summer? I don't think we did!

Testing the limits on my new stomach pouch and making myself completely sick in the process!

16. What was your favourite TV program?

The Big Bang Theory

17. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?

LOL No, but there are one or two people who I dislike a lot more now, mostly because we clash politically and they are SO close-minded to alternate points of view.

18. What was the best book you read?

A Thousand Splendid Suns

19. What was your greatest musical discovery?

Oh, gosh, I'm pretty lame when it comes to music, but Brett Dennen is awesome.

My drugs! (Rx of course)

My mom, and our son Robby... always, always

Never, ever, take your husband's love for granted.

Sayonara, '09!
