Happy New Year Everyone!!
I hope that 2009 brings everyone health and happiness. I hope that the economy can turnaround brefore more people lose their jobs. I hope the President Obama stays safe, focused and is able to do his job. I hope that California repeals the passage of Prop 8, we have all come so far to take a giant step backwards.
For myself 2008 brought many things....I became unemployed for the first time in nearly 25 years. Which wasn't really a bad thing...I was able to focus on the more important things in life, which always took a backseat to my career. I was able to re-establish an old friendship with a friend who now needs me as she handles a terminal illness. I started a blog...which a year ago I had no idea what one was. And my daughter won on the Price is Right...which was an awesome, once in a lifetime event. I attended a few weddings, some beautiful babies were born and there were some losses of friends and family.
So here is to 2009!! I am getting ready to embark on a new career! And I know that this year will also bring happiness and sadness....but I know it will also bring change for our Country and I hope that this is the year that all of our service men and women in the Middle East get to come home safely. God Bless.

This afternoon we decided to watch The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, what an awesome movie! I had read the reviews and some had described it as slow moving...but I found that the movie moved along at the just the right pace, enough to keep your interest (and the Hubby didn't fall asleep...that's means alot..believe me!).
I admit...I have always had a thing for Brad Pitt (if you remember an earlier post of mine..). Ever since Thelma and Louise...his incredible dimpled smile and boyish good looks....ummm yummy. And again I have always been Team Aniston...but Brad, Brad, Brad....oh, excuse me...
This movie had the simularities of Forest Gump (as so many reviewers have said) with the romance of A River Runs Through It and Legends of the Fall. It is well worth the nearly 3 hours of cienamatic viewing. The makeup and special effects are stunning and left me wondering many times how the heck they did it.
If you have the time and the opportunity to see this movie, definately go see it....I think there will be alot of talk about this one come Oscar time.
