I just realized that not only did 2009 hand off the torch to 2010, but that also means another decade is gone! I decided to be silly and do a review of the last decade, complete with pictures. And then it practically took me the whole new decade to gather the pictures and upload and format. So I hope you are excited and screaming OMG UNICORNS in anticipation.
J lost his job at the beginning of the year, but we made the best of it and J spent his time sharpening his construction skills. At least we lived in Danville where you can basically get by on nickels. Plus, J & I made really good friends in Danville and busied ourselves by rock climbing, kayaking and shooting guns. J also ran his first 5K! By July—right when we finally finished all our house projects—J scored a job up in NH. We moved, leaving our house behind to get broken into shortly after we left town. Ehh, no worries. It wouldn’t be the first time. Once settled in NH, we bought kayaks to celebrate living in such an outdoor-friendly place and hit the rivers immediately. I also got my new eyes! 2008
Our first winter in NH gave us 120 inches of snowfall, a record-setter for them. We learned to XC ski and attempted (failed) making an igloo. I started this blog! Apparently NH is cooler than any of the other places we lived because we had visitors nonstop during the summer. We also spent every moment we could exploring the outdoor wonderland found in New England, including up in Acadia NP. We almost got hit by lightening up on Mt. Washington. J had his first baby. Gotcha! But Buddha did have a baby on J’s birthday. 2009
Not as much snow, still lots of summer visitors, lots of local travel for us (continuing our goal of hitting all the high point summits including Mt. Katahdin!!), lots of dancing, lots of concerts and an overall zest for trying new things (yurts!!!!!!). J had another baby, err, I mean PanicMan and theMakeupArtist had a baby on J’s birthday.
I’m excited about Twenty-Ten. It should be pretty quiet, but we’re always preparing for our big AT thru hike, hopefully in the near future. I’m sure we’ll have many adventures and many visitors, as usual. You’ll just have to stay tuned. Oh, and make sure someone gets pregnant this month so that another baby can be born on J’s bday!
