Once again, I did not ——stop drinking soda———-.

Was —-the weather—– crazier than ever last year? Or was it me?
The most relaxing place I went was –that resort in Palm Desert—–.

Great list. I tend to be more reflective on my birthday (December 4th) than at the end of the year. However, you have inspired me to put down some thoughts that I may put on FB or on my own blog.
I hope that 2009 is a great year of success for you!
