Despite the economic woes, 2008 was great year for us, mostly thanks to Jonas, but we had a few other exciting moments along the way.
(If I wrote an entry about the event, it’s hyper-linked, so that you can visit that specific post.)
#10. Hernia surgery – Not exactly the news I wanted to hear 3.5 months post partum: "You've got a hole in your abdomen, lady."
I'm going to spare you the photo on this one. Let's just say it's not pretty.
#7. New windows installed in our house - And from #8 we get this. It was actually phase 2 of the windows project, which cost us nearly half of the infamous "bail out package". We weren’t sure if we were going to get to phase 2 this year, but the skyrocketing fuel prices, sealed the deal. Now, we get to stain and seal all those windows! Get your masks out.
#6. Jonas' first holidays: Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas.
#5. The launch of ThinkFast Multisport, Joe’s new business venture.
# 4. The election
#2. Our fifth wedding anniversary – All of our romantic getaway plans were foiled, but we still had a good time. We're still married!
