pop the bubbly!

What with the economy in the crapper, so many friends unemployed (oh, and um, me too), and the constant barrage of gloom and doom from the network news, it'd be easy to kiss 2009 goodbye without a second thought and welcome a new year - new decade at that! - with open arms. 

Not so fast there, though, buckaroo.  Despite the bleak headlines, '09 was pretty darn good to us. 

In the past 525,600 minutes...
Most importantly... we're all still here: snort laughing, crying, chattering, farting, bickering, singing (off-key), whistling, jogging, plugging away... living, in the fullest sense.  

And I think that's really all I can ask for in a year.

Huge cheers to all of you tonight - at both 11:59 p.m. and at 12:01 a.m.  May each moment be filled to its absolute bursting point.

Catch y'all next year.


  1. Hear, hear! LOVED this post, loved reliving fun moments from your blog over the last year, loved your positive outlook especially considering how it treated you toward the end. May each of your moments be filled to their bursting points, too. You are presh.

  2. This was a really great, really fun post. Here's hoping 2010 brings you more love, laughter, fond memories, reasons to smile, and football championships (and brings us more non-fetishy photos in the bathroom)!

    Happy New Year, Kate :)

  3. Sounds like a great year! Happy New Year! Hope this next one is even better! :)

  5. You were one busy gal in 2009! I hope 2010 brings just as many blessings for you! I am so glad I found your blog in 2009. Can't wait to keep reading in the new year :)

  6. I have enjoyed your blog since finding it earlier this year. You had a very joy-filled 2009 it seems! May 2010 bring you much love and happiness as well!
