May 2009 be better than 2008!
All in all 2008 wasn't too bad for me. I finally moved out of the duplex and into a house, that is owned, and I can paint walls and not share walls with neighbors. I don't have to move my car off the street during a snow storm. I also can't call maintenance if something goes wrong....
My health was pretty good. No major issues. I continue to give blood regularly.
I sewed a lot of tents and taught others how to sew tents! I backed off of the SCA a bit and chose to focus on a select number of activities instead of doing a huge amount.
I helped to elect the first black President of the US! I don't envy him the amount of work ahead of him, but I feel hopeful that he will do what is best for the country.
I am thankful for P (who continues to put up with me), my family, the kitties, our home, a van that still runs, my friends and my ability to pay the bills.
