Goodbye 2009. And good riddance too.
Oh yes, I suppose this is the point at which I am supposed to be fondly looking back on the year and reliving the good times. And there were some good times: a few wonderful trips with R. Darling, getting pregnant, stolen moments of happiness here and there amidst the emotional bombings. Strangely, I thought that perhaps I was just imagining how awful things seemed to be, until I read this. But I am ready to move on from this year of maximum suckage. It has truly been the worst year I can remember in my entire lifetime. I’m calling it “The Year Of The Mole”; as in, whack-a-mole. Because I swear the hits just came coming. Every time I’d stagger upright from one blow the mallet would be poised to deliver another one and I’d scurry as fast as possible back into my hole hoping the damage wouldn’t maim me permanently. Whack, whack, whack, came that incessant mallet, over and over. But enough is enough. I am going to tuck this Mole Year safely away tonight when the clock strikes midnight, and never look back. I’m ready for a new beginning.
What better way to end the year than to begin already looking forward? I have one last 2009 WIP to show you, that will be the most fantastic FO I can imagine in 2010, bridging the gap between this old year and the new one on the horizon. Something to help me visualize the new life we’re looking forward to and symbolize the start of what I hope will be a new phase of happiness.

Wishing you the most joyous New Year imaginable and a wonderful beginning in 2010!!
