J- I don't know. Check back, maybe I'll think of something.
Did you keep your New Year's resolutions and will you make any this year?
J- I looked back to see if I made any resolutions publicly. And I can't find any. I'm sure I resolved to lose weight, read my Bible more and be more patient with my kids. If those were my resolutions, then NO, I did not keep them!
Did anyone close to you give birth?
J- Sadly, no.
Did anyone close to you die?
J- No, but I did attend funerals for a few that I was close to the family of. (wow, that was a rough sentence!)
What places have you visited?
J- Disney World!! It was great!
What would you like to have in 2011 that you lacked in 2010?
J- My answer last year was patience. So, I will repeat last year's answer and add a clean house!
What date from 2010 will remain etched in your memory?
J- July 23. The day Daniel broke his arm. It was quite a day!
What was your biggest achievement this year?
J- 2009 was a tough year, 2010 was better. That we remained solid, together and loving the Lord is my achievement this year. And also that we survived two kids with mono, one with a double ear infection, and one broken arm in the same month. We survived!
Did you have any illnesses this year?
J- I didn't. But my kids did, see above. I'm hoping 2010 was the only year we have a July like that!
What was the best thing you bought this year?
J- Goodness, I can't remember. I'm sure it was something terribly cheap at A&E's. Born shoes for $5? Oh! Our van! I've gotten over the things it lacks, and have embraced it as it is. I really, really like it. Abby should get one too. Oh! and I got a Cricut, love.it.
Where did most of your money go?
J-Besides groceries and the new van, I'd have to say shoes and jeans for the boys.
What song will remind you of 2010?
J- Tonight by Toby Mac. The boys fell in love with Toby Mac this year. And I, of course, have felt that way for quite a while. Don't tell Stephen!
What do you wish you would have done more of?
J-Tell others about Jesus, and cleaned house.
What do you wish you would have done less of?
J- Re-living past wrongs. I mean God forgave, why dwell on it?!
What was your favorite tv program?
J- I've started watching reality shows. Like American Pickers, 19 Kids & Counting, Toddlers & Tiara's, and of course the cooking shows, Top Chef and Next Food Network Star.
What was the best book you read this year?
J- I got a Kindle for Christmas last year ( have I told you that before? HA!) and have read so very many books. I can't keep track.
What was your favorite film of the year?
J- I loved Toy Story 3. It made me cry. I just saw True Grit last week and really like it. Those could quite possibly be the only two movies I saw this year.
What did you do on your birthday and how old were you?
J- For my 40th birthday I went to Fort Smith and had a family birthday party. It was great! I got to see Mamaw and Uncle David, Aunt Janet, Uncle Mike, the cousins, friends. It was great. And I got my first pedicure. I'm in love!
What political issues stirred you the most?
J- I wouldn't say I get stirred. Some bother me, but I shan't write about them here.
Who was the best new person you met this year?
J- I'd have to say Angie. She is so quiet that I almost missed her. But she is so sweet and talented. Can't wait to get to know her more.
