I was thinking back a bit about 2009 and all in all, it was a dang weird year and I'm glad it's just about over. Maybe this year was the year everything was a bit crappy to lay the groundwork for 2010 being great. I wondered why money was a bit tight this year and my business was off by about 45% and I was down about 9000.00 overall from last year. That was a bit scary but we made it OK. I missed Hallowe'en this year, it just didn't happen which I don't know if I regret it or not, I don't see how I could have done much anything differently.
On the upside, I have met some wonderful people out in Blogland, some that I have the honor to call friends. I have read their blogs and learned of their ups and downs and gained insight to my own life through their experiences and that has been richly rewarding. One blogger inadvertently has made my relationship with Mrs. Macabre a whole lot better by allowing me to understand and accept that differences in two people that love each other is just fine (thanks Peter!).
As 2009 draws to a close, I think that I will remember this as being a more difficult year but one that can be looked back on to say we got through it.
Now it's 3:05 and I'm finally cooled down and am going to saunter back to bed...
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good
