2009 Recap and 2010 Goals

2009 was a rough year for us. We had no income for the entire year, had a baby, buried a baby, sold our house, moved into my parents basement, started homeschooling, dealt with major medical concerns with our 3 year old, and only started to get some answers as to why my heart is not beating as it should. It was a rough year, and I hope to never have another one like it again. On the positive side of things, I’m pretty sure we can only go up from here.
