2009

No long list of “Best Ofs”

No funny film clips today.

2009 was a weird, wonderful, awful, blur in a lot of ways.

It say Avi go from phone calls to “Head Start” to find out if her language was delayed, to her running through May’s house Christmas Eve singing “Jingle Bells”…the whole song…at the top of her voice. She has begun spontaneously saying and doing things that I did not expect she would be doing at this point.

Part of me wishes I could bottle up 2009’s version of Avi and keep it for ever. The other part of me cannot wait to see what 2010 hold for her.

2009 started with me single, weird, still married and confused. 2009 started with me really focusing on school and getting my first 4.0 of my academic career.

2009 ends with me sharing my house, my daughter and my life with a woman who I am going to spend the rest of my life with.

It has been a weird year.

2009 started with the innauguration of Barack Obama. 2009 ends with major questions about the direction of this country.

2009 has been a weird year.

I guess this is also the end of the decade, and it has been weird too. In 2000 I was still in High School.

In 2009 I am finishing up my Masters degree, I own my home, I have a 2 and 1/2 year old daughter, I am divorced.

It has been a weird decade.

I lead a wonderful life, one I would not change for anything. The bad times (and they were REAL BAD) are made infinately worth it by the good.

I am excited and a little scared for all that 2010 holds.
