  1. It’s really disturbing how much things can change in one year. But then again, it’s really awesome how much things can change in one year. if that made any sense whatsoever.

  2. I am so glad that your year ended on a good note, especially after such incredibly hard times! I hope that 2009 is even better for you and I’m so glad things are going well for you. :) Happy New Year!

  3. Oh… when you started this list I was really feeling for you! Infact I still am, it’s been a very eventful year for you it sounds. But it also sounds like it’s turned around and that’s great! Just roll with the punches :) This list proves it all gets better.
