New Years Blogging!

2010 Surveys

39 Questions

1. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before?

Celebrated a first birthday with my child, conceived a 2nd SURPRISE baby with NO medical assistance!

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I don't think I made any in 2010!  

This year's resolutions are:

-learn to knit

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

I had a couple friends from the Gathering who had their babies this year!

4. Did anyone close to you die?

Unfortunately, we lost Grandpa Goetsch in September.  I was VERY close to him, even though I barely knew him.  He was really the only "Grandpa" I ever got to know at all.  Both of mine died when I was young (one when I was about 5 and the other when I was 12).
