  • 2000 - This is the year I moved out of my parents house and learned lived on my own, pay my own bills, etc.

    2001 - This is the year I finally had sex for the first time (I cannot believe that I remember this and that I am admitting this).

    2002 - I really believe that this is the year I learned who I was, really, and finally learned to not care what anyone else thought of me.

    2003 - This is the year I met my husband.

    2004 - I lost another job and took a tremendous pay cut.

    2005 - This is the year I got engaged and began planning my marriage.

    2006 - This bittersweet year I lost my fiancee's grandmother and gained a husband.

    2007 - I got pregnant and delivered Sophie in 2007. It was an amazing year.

    2008 - This year was a whirlwind. I cannot remember any one big event other than my sister getting pregnant.

    2009 - We lost Ava, we lost our pregnancy, we got the swine flu.

    I have high hopes for 2010 all of which are centered around ending the year with two new children in my family - one for my sister and one for me.
