year in review: some 2009 stats

94: books read
39: blog posts
16: quarts of pickles canned
14: quarts of tomatoes canned
8: houseguests (though some of those were here multiple times)
5: weeks without a working computer at home
4: major furniture items bought
3 1/2: rooms redone (the kitchen is still in progress)
3: vacations/trips (2 to Wisconsin, 1 to Duluth)
3: kids’ birthday parties attended
3: months of Olive in preschool
2: parties thrown
2: trips to the movie theater
2: months without a car
1: car totalled
1: car bought
1: bout with bedbugs
1: case of pneumonia (Olive’s, not mine – though as a mom, what’s the difference?)

All in all? Not a year I’m very sad to see gone. In fact, good riddance. Because really, I want these stats to look very different on December 31, 2010. I want to see more parties thrown, more vacations (including one to California), more blog posts, more yummy things canned (jam, hot sauce, applesauce, salsa…), less homeprojects and NO bedbugs. Also, no broken cars or computers. Actually, I’d like to see the addition of a netbook to my possessions, quite frankly.

So adieu, 2009 – I wish I could say that with fondness, but ah, well. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.
