...and believe me, I've missed blogging. It's just that I'm not so good at dealing with my life and still finding time for blogging. So when a close friend was diagnosed with cancer in October, many things went on hold. We are still dealing with that, but I've decided to spend at least a little time with my blog. I made so many great contacts in 2009 - I had no idea what I was getting into when I started and it's been great!
So, instead of my usual New Year's Resolutions - complete my entire family history, lose 50 pounds, blog every day and bring about world peace...or sometime like that - I've decided on a more moderate approach. I'm going to post my weekly family events each Sunday. That was always my favorite post and also generally seemed to elicit the most comments.
I also have some unfinished business from the beginning of January. I find I've been given the Happy 101 Award three times in January! I know that I'm way too late to this party, but I'd still like to take a moment to thank Mary at Mary's Musings, My Family's Roots Run Deep and Felicia at My Nola Heritage for taking the time stop by my blog! I won't attempt to pass this along at this point, but I will list 10 things that make me happy ~ in no particular order:
1. My big ol' German Shepard, Killer
2. Being able to go snowshoeing with my parents!
3. Christmas with my family
6. My German class on Saturday mornings
7. Laughing with a friend
8. Connecting with new living relatives
9. My extra day off every other week
10. Taking photos for Find-A-Grave
So, that about wraps it up for now. Time to get that Weekly Family Events post in order!
