The year that was - 2010

Has to be the most exciting in our lives!
Although the twins were born in 2009, but this is the year when they started doing things other than sleeping and eating.

So! this was the year with a lot of changes! Not only did G n I became parents in the proper sense of the word, our babies are on their way to becoming toddlers. My sister, the lifeline of my stay here in the US, moved away to another city. After having lived in the same city for over 7 years, this was a huge change. But she came back home when the kids turned 1, so that was nice.

My BIL and SIL came over to the US for the first time in their lives, and they thoroughly enjoyed their visit. I am so glad they got to come here, something G n I have wanted for a long time.
I got to see both my parents twice this year! How cool is that?! M got to visit almost all my family and G's family that mattered. She is one lucky girl. I left my 11 month old son for 2 weeks. I will probably never let myself forget how awful that felt and how much I missed him. G was a splendid Dad, but I felt terrible the whole time. I don't think we'll be doing that ever again.
Though I didn't face being laid off myself, I have experienced it through others and it's something I don't wish on anyone. Work atmosphere has changed, I am constantly worrying about my job and that is not a happy place to be.
Mr O made promises to change the world, he did none of that, this year too.

I have started on a healthy life style and though it took a back seat in the last month, I am going to be on the wagon most of next year. I have goals and I will achieve them!
I look back on the year gone by and there is not one day or one minute that I think I should have lived differently. I am glad for the choices I have made.
Some people who were dear to me, are not so much anymore and again, that is something I have my peace with.
This year was not the happiest of times for some people I know, maybe for others too. But I plan on making it another successful and happy year, so just you wait 2011, just you wait!

Happy New Year to all those people who read me up occasionally!
Thanks a bunch!!!
