An exciting year?

Here is a little New Year's survey I stole from Katelyn and Katey's blogs. Thanks girls!

1.) What did you do in 2008 that you had never done before? started blogging.
2.) Did you keep your previous New Year's resolutions, and will you make new ones for next year? I don't really remember what they were, but they probably involved "getting in shape" and no, I didn't keep it. I actually got more "out of shape".
3.) Did anyone you know give birth? yes, at least 4 people that I can think of.
4.) Did anyone close to you die? yes, CF friends.
5.) What countries did you visit? none.
6.) What would you like to have in 2009 that you lacked in 2008? a brand, spankin' new 10,000 sq. ft. house... hehe... I'm kidding. I'd settle for 8,000 sq. ft. :)
7.) What date from 2008 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? November 10, 2008... the day I got a new kidney from my wonderful Mom!!
8.) What was your biggest achievement of the year? living another year... it's always my biggest achievement.
9.) Did you suffer from illness or injury? yes.
10.) What was the best thing you bought? my Canon SLR.
11.) Did your behavior change over the year? only after going on high doses of prednisone. It wasn't for the best either.
12.) Where did most of your money go? bills.
13.) What did you get really excited about? mostly the little things in life, but also getting my transplant.

Compared to this time last year, are you:

1.) Richer or poorer? richer because we paid off some bills.
2.) Did you fall in love? more deeply in love, yes.
3.) What was your favorite TV program? House.
4.) What was the best book you read? Redeeming Love (I think I read Twilight at the end of 2007, or I would put that).
5.) What was your favorite film of the year?
 The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
6.) Thinner or fatter? Thinner, but well on my way to becoming fatter.
7.) What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you? went to The Melting Pot with Jason and Casey. I turned 28 (oops.. I mean 38).
8.) What one thing made your year immeasurably more satisfying? Chocolate (I only started liking chocolate in the last month and a half.. it's awesome.. really, you should try it).
9.) How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2008? T-shirt, hoodie, jeans, converse shoes.... ughh, I have to get some sophistication in 2009... add that to my resolutions. You know, the ones that I will have forgotten about by the end of 2009.
10.) What kept you sane? Casey and Jason.. always Casey and Jason.
11.) What political issue stirred you the most? Our 2 party system that should be more like a 4 or 5 party system.
12.) What was the best new person you met? Hard to say. I met so many awesome people from the CF community online. 
13.) What is a valuable lesson you learned in 2008? Maybe you shouldn't ALWAYS say what you think...

Did you like Redeeming Love? I cried like a baby at the end of it.

I have to agree with you on meeting so many wonderful people within the online CF community (including you!), so I cheated and just made it people I physically met. That made it a little easier. :)

I loved that book Katelyn. YES.. I cried like a baby.. haha. I couldn't put the book down.

CF friends are the best!!!

You've only just started liking chocolate? My, you're still so young. :) Happy New Year! I glad I "met" you and it's been a big learning experience for me reading about your life with CF.
