The Best of 2009

The Best of 2009 Blog Challenge

December 21 Project. What did you start this year that you're proud of?
Gala and Nubby
Obviously still a work in progress... Wonder if I'll have time to finish it soon...

December 22 Startup. What's a business that you found this year that you love? Who thought it up? What makes it special?
Hmmm... I don't think we discovered any new businesses this year that we were enamored of, but we did find the people of Monro Muffler to be extremely helpful on more than one occasion: Taking a good 30 minutes to thoroughly check our brakes and not charge us anything when we experienced what they called "brake fade" and then later when we had our brake lines actually fail (many months later). They were also very reasonably priced and didn't try to push extra repairs on us, even though they probably could have...

December 23 Web tool. It came into your work flow this year and now you couldn't live without it. It has simplified or improved your online experience.
Google Calendar! I used to use a Yahoo group calendar for Jacqueline & I, but it was a pain in the butt to go enter things on it in order to get the reminders and all. But Google Calendar is SO easy and Jacqueline & I just share our calendars! Easy peasy cheesy!

December 24 Learning experience. What was a lesson you learned this year that changed you?
Life is short. You can DIE at any moment. You could trip on a rock, hit your head, and be gone. Do you really want to waste a single moment when life is so unpredictable? (I've been forgetting this a lot lately...Thank you for asking & reminding me...)

December 25 Gift. What's a gift you gave yourself this year that has kept on giving?
Car repairs! LOL! Without them we wouldn't have been able to go swimming so often, drive to NYC, be there when my stepdad died, or Benji was born, and especially drive to Tennessee!
