As we did this time last year, let’s take another stroll through the archives to see what happened here at The Bean Blog in 2009.
In January I discovered I may be getting a little too
drunk old for girl’s night out.
In February my treadmill tried to kill me so we had to break up.
I stupidly cooked two weeks of meals in one day…which I will never do again.
And I locked myself in the laundry room and had to be saved my 6-year-old.
After running in to a man from my past I told my story of domestic abuse.
Turns out Lee and I shop exactly the same way.
In April our great state of Iowa began to allow same-sex marriage.
My friends and I had a flashback to the 80′s at the NKOTB concert.
Justis turned 17. Just one year away from 18. *hold me*
In May I once again realized how sewing challenged I am.
I overcame my fear of public speaking. Well maybe overcame isn’t true. But I gave a speech without almost peeing my pants so that was an accomplishment.
Caleb turned 7 and finally got his goggles.
And then we got the bombshell that Justis wanted to move back to live with his mom for his senior year.
The stay-at-home dad debate continued in to July.
My friend, Carolyn, and I were stranded at Subway.
I went to my very first BlogHer and had a blast.
Keaton turned 15 and showed his love for all things Apple by liking his new iPod touch.
I got a new piercing…in my eyebrow.
And I almost had a panic attack while school supply shopping.
In September I took shopping advice from Lee and regretted it.
I got my panties in a wad about the debate over the President speaking directly to our kids.
In October Skyler & Spencer turned 10. Finally in to the double digits…much to my dismay. My babies are growing up.
After my blog was banned because Google hates me (or something like that), I kind of lost my blogging mojo. But after months of sporadic posting, I blogged every single day in November.
My laptop failed and I almost had a heart attack. But thankfully it was fixed within 24 hours.
I had some crazy dreams where I was in a bathtub of chili with Russell Brand. Or bald.
Lee and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary.
And then we celebrated my friend Lori’s 40th birthday.
Lee got a job and I now have to wake up earlier in the morning.
For the first time in, well, forever I started my Christmas shopping early. But when I asked Justis what he wanted all he said was “socks.”
In December I went to visit my Grandpa at the hospital and ended up $100 poorer.
Caleb had his first speaking part in a school musical. And I forgot my camera.
For Christmas Caleb got a broken wrist.
It’s been a good year (aside from the blog blocking and bone breaking). Let’s hope 2010 is even better (and bone breaking free). Happy New Year!
