2010 in review

I had many changed in 2010. It was a really great year. Of course it had it's ups and downs but what year doesn't.
In February My step daughter had her baby and by marriage that makes me a Grandma. It took some getting used to use the term grand daughter. I had issues of feeling like I was stepping on my husband's first wives toes. I feel more better now. I feel like babygirl can't have too many people loving her and looking out for her.

In March, My youngest son turned 10 years of age. That is a pretty big birthday and he continues to have gains in his education.

In May, I received an Happy Mother's day message from Izzy. I believe this is the month that I started volunteering for MELD. MELD has been a life changing moment for me.

In June, my client at the time, canceled and I found myself with zero hours. I filed for unemployment and collected enough paychecks to be off about 7 weeks.

Late July, I went back to work for another client.

In September, I celebrated my daughter's 19th birthday with outings with my husband. I was able to send her gifts and it was the first year that I didn't cry.

In October, I met my daughter for the first time. She is beautiful, amazing and smart. We have a lot in common.

Late November, I seen her again. My oldest son turned 16 years of age.

December, I really really enjoyed Christmas so much more than years past. I was able to buy for Izzy but we haven't met yet to exchange gifts. We will soon.
