2009 in Review

so the past couple of years I've gone through a month-by-month review of my entire year. I don't feel like doing that today. So I stole this little jewel from a blog I enjoy, Ramblings and Randomness to do instead. I hope you're okay with that, because it's what you're getting.

I'm disappointed with the TV show. We watched all of Veronica Mars and it isn't a favorite. It was great bonding time for us.

England! Go to England. It's amazing, and you won't regret it. :)
