Yes, I am a huge slacker in the blogging department. Unfortunately, I couldn't help it. The beginning of the month was finals for me in French, which was oh-so stressful but because I am brilliant I made an A in the entire class... Go me! I also got an A in my terrorism class, so I am rather proud of myself for finishing out '08 with straight A's.
Thanksgiving was great for us, my family came to play with us, including my baby sister. Paul (her husband) was going through bootcamp at the time for the US Coast Guard, so she got to talk to him, which was such a great thing for her. It was so nice to spend time with them.
I can't believe its only 10 days from Christmas. I am so excited for Christmas. We are going to Kentucky, and hopefully Paul, Sarah's husband will be able to get extended leave to spend Christmas with us. Does anyone else feel like the Christmas spirit is almost non-existent this year? Hardly anyone has lights on their house, and no one seems really excited. I feel horrible for those who have lost their job, especially right before the holidays. I remember last year when I didn't have a job during this time...it was a very hard time for me- and I am so thankful that I am where I am now.
So- here is saying farewell to 2008. A year that has been rewarding, challening, surprising, joyful and loving all at once.
I don't think I will get to post before New years (we will be skiing in the Mountains... yay!) so here is to a great beginning of 2009!
