  5. Looking back on 2008 and forward to 2009

    Well it seems everyone has been looking back on the year and forward to what the new year holds.

    2008 for us started off being a bad year as DH hurt himself at work in December of 2007. Things just seemed to have gone down hill from there at least for the first 3/4 of 2008. But this last part of 2008 starting in about August, we just decided that we were going to try harder to get on our feet and start making some changes to get there.
