2010: What I learned

What a year. Roller coaster emotions. Hard conversations. Lots of good and bad. All in all- I can't say that I'm sad it's over. I have high hopes for a better 2011.

I'm sure there are a ton more...but here is some of what I learned in 2010.

1. When my husband thinks something on TV is funny, he repeats it.
2. Being able to manage your money is key to having a good marriage.
3. Infertility is terrible. The people who deal with it well are my heroes. I'm still learning from them.
4. I made the right choice when I left my job in March.
5. We'll never have enough money. And that's ok.
6. JC and I make a great team. We've been able to make some hard decisions together.
7. I have no desire to live in the DC Metro area long term.
8. I love, love, love being an aunt.
9. I will always battle with my weight, despite having gastric bypass over 3 years ago.
10. I have surrounded myself with amazing people.


  1. I hope 2011 is an amazing year for you, Kathy! Happy New Year!

  2. #1 makes me giggle
    #4 makes me roll my eyes, because really - how can I not. I hate that place.
    #3 makes me emotional. I haven't dealt with IF, but I truly feel for those that do. I may not have the type of loss they do, but it forces you to grieve something that you don't have yet because you don't know IF you'll have it yet.

    I truly hope you get what you want in 2011. Love you!

  3. 2011 is going to be a great for you! I have a lot of hope in 2011 for many, many, wonderful women, including you :)
