Welcome 2009!!!

Ok, so I am a little late with that, but at least I did it, lol!!
I have so much to share, but it will take me a few days to get it all shared with you, as there are just too many photos! . The first thing I want to share is my word for the year...ENDURE. I chose this word based on our current situation and I know we will have to endure a lot this year. I am not sure what my plan is exactly, I suppose it will come to me in time, though it will probably start with an altered project or something.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- en·dure-verb
Middle English, from Anglo-French endurer, from Vulgar Latin *indurare, from Latin, to harden, from in- + durare to harden, endure — more at during
transitive verb 1 : to undergo (as a hardship) especially without giving in : suffer 2 : to regard with acceptance or tolerance intransitive verb 1 : to continue in the same state : last 2 : to remain firm under suffering or misfortune without yielding
Synonyms see bear, continue
Next on my list is I am doing a 365 photo thing. I know others are doing it, and I just liked the idea. I am not doing any organized challenge or group, just sort of doing my own. I think I will call it 365 in 2009 original, I know! I have already started it...
OK, edited to say Project 365, just like everyone else, lol!
I finished this book!! I am so hooked and obsessed now! But unlike others-you both know who you are-I refuse to let it take over my life. Cliff is already feeling jealous, and my blogging/scrapping is behind, LOL! I even used the tickets I got for my bday and saw the movie!

I cleaned up my scrapspace, and hope to keep it like this all year!

Next on my list...Scrappy Girl shared a review of 2008 and I loved it so much, I wanted to do the same. The problem is, there are so many photos, and I want to share them all. It is going to take a few days to share it all! I will do 3-4 months at a time, I hope you don't mind.
There wasn't a lot to share, we lost our internet, Mom was in ICU, and that is pretty much it.
Cropped with some gals from CKMB!
I started my Stickles collection.
At CKC Portland, I finished my Stickles collection! .
Went to Rockaway Beach to visit BFF Marla and her hubby. Just a few random shots.
I joined AMR.
Toby turned 5, he is growing up so fast!
New Kids On The Block got back together, officially!
Thanks for tuning in, check back tomorrow for May-Aug and even some layouts!
