1. What did you think of 2009?
I think it was a decent year. A few bad things happened, like my accident that killed my car, but the year could have been worse. I got back on meds this year and that’s a good thing. Pat decided to leave me this year, and that’s a bad thing. But it seems he’s changed his mind for now and that’s a good thing. I don’t know, it’s been a decent year.
2. What do you think was the news story of the year?
Michael Jackson’s death
3. What happened this year that you never want to hear another word about?
Michael Jackson’s death, balloon boy and Jon and Kate’s divorce.
4. What was your favorite song of 2009?
That’s a hard question to answer. I’m bad with knowing song titles so I can’t really spit out a title and artist. I can’t even think of lyrics on the spot.
5. What did you accomplish this year?
A few things. I got back on my meds, which is huge. That is a long grueling process finding the right ones, getting through side effects, etc etc etc. We are by no means done with the process but I’ve been working on it since last January or February. I’ve also managed to successfully stay away from alcohol. I don’t have a drinking problem but I’ve come a little too close for comfort to having one. So when I was told to be careful drinking while on my meds, I took that to literally mean no alcohol. There was the one girl’s night with Stacy and Kate that I did get a little drunk but one time in one year isn’t bad at all.
6. Did you learn anything new this year?
7. What are you looking forward to in the new year?
New car! I still don’t know how the whole car situation is going to work out. We’ll have to play it one day and dollar at a time but we are getting a new car and it’s long over due.
8. What are your plans for New Year’s Eve?
I plan to sleep through it. Unless Pat makes me do something. But he hates how anti-new years I am so I’m thinking he’ll leave me alone this year.
9. What’s the best thing you ever did on a New Year’s Eve?
I don’t know. I hate the holiday so I tend to scrooge out. There was one year when I had a quiet movie night with Stacy and Pat. That was nice. I wouldn’t mind doing that again.
