I noticed it happening on the tv, suddenly those end of the year lists came out…and then…end of the decade. WTF? I hadn’t noticed or even thought about the fact that 2010 was a new decade. Holy moly, people!
And while I do not make new year’s resolutions as I firmly don’t believe in them, (thus you could say I always keep my resolution to NOT make resolutions and am a resounding success) I do like to mull over the past and look to the future. And the new year is certainly a good time to do that. I, like many others, had read purchase viagra online with paypal and considered copying it for some inspiration. Then I read long term effects of viagra and like the lists on tv, it got me thinking…what has my decade been like? And since I often mull over things to write long before I log into my dashboard, I have been thinking about this since reading Maggie’s post.
And so…here is Moonspun’s decade of the 00′s.
During the first half of 2000 I was enrolled in Divinity school on my way (I thought) to my goal of becoming a Unitarian Universalist minister. I was working full time as a retail manger and FFO was pregnant with lil m. We were living in Framingham, Massachusetts. And thus, on July 15th at 1:50 a.m. my life changed forever when Pyscho-Mom in her role as our midwife said “Moonspun grab your baby” and I first touched the small miracle that was lil moonspun helping to guide her into the world. For more details on lil m’s birth, click here.
2001 was amazing on the one hand, being a mom and watching lil moonspun grow and really shitty on the other hand with work, moving, the testing of friendships and what was going on in the world.
In 2002 thanks to a generous first time home buying program at my local bank, I purchased my first home in Worcester Mass. Back in a much different real estate market, I overbid asking price by $6000 and was one of 8 offers on our house. But we were homeowners and having something just ours to settle into, despite my 40 mile commute one way to work, was well worth it. Although we wouldn’t know it at the time, August of that year was the last time lil m saw her birth-father. In the fall of that year I hurt my back putting lil m into her car seat and suffered a bit of a financial setback due to loss of work.
2003 was largely (and blissfully) uneventful. FFO finally finished her master’s degree and (gasp) had a full time job and we were both gainfully employed. Lil moonspun was happy in pre-school and spending two days a week with my mom. We took our first family vacation, camping in Vermont and spending time with JB and family.
Early 2004 sucked for my extended family, with viagra generic funny There were many months of just trying to move forward. In the summer of that year FFO, lil moonspun and I boarded a plane and went to visit FFO’s family in Missoula, Montana. We had a good vacation and FFO had some good reunions with cousins she’d not seen since she was a kid. Then we spent a week camping in York Maine and visiting with my sister (who lived in York at the time) and my parents who came up to visit. In the fall JB and her family moved to Vermont and only furthered my resolve to do so myself.
2005 was truly a year of change for us, as we made the long talked about decision to move to Vermont. So on July 16th after lil m turned 5, we literally headed north. We had sold our house in Worcester after 3 year for a +$50k profit (again, different real estate market) and plowed that right into building cheap viagra pleasure . I left a job that I loved and was good at and made a pretty darn good living at in order to be a stay-at-home mom to lil m and to have FFO support us (oh how it’s hard to write that and not laugh now) In the fall Lil moonspun started kindergarden at her Waldorf school and we started a new life. Right after Thanksgiving we moved into our new house. In May of that year I was able to finally adopt Lil moonspun and her birth certificate was officially changed to reflect me as a parent (ok I am listed as father, it’s an imperfect system) but it made me secure forever as her legal parent.
The first part of 2006 was uncertain. Our savings was dwindling, FFO was having trouble supporting us and honestly, our marriage was beginning its final decline. On April 30 my destiny changed forever when I met RP. In just a few short months both our marriages were over and he was living with me, indian viagra weak So the second half of the year was uncertain in many ways as we worked our way through the tediousness of separation and divorce amidst forging a new life together.
2007 was a year of endings and beginnings. I turned 40 in April. I started my blog in September. We sold the Cabot house and moved to EE and RP’s old house after she moved with the lrps back to ‘tucky. We lived there for nearly 4 months until it sold and then we generic viagra generic cialis pills . I also started new job at the University (the one I still have) and ran my first 5k. Lil moonspun viagra pharmacy rx one and we went to Ohio for Thanksgiving where I met two of RP’s siblings for the first time. It was also in 2007 when RP was officially divorced and we became officially engaged. I asked him first and then he asked me.
The good thing about 2008 was that we didn’t move! We spent the first part of the year planning our generic viagra . And I delved back into academics taking the first of my military history classes on campus. We also just continued to settle into our lives and well, because I have a blog, our year is pretty well documented on here. I had my bone spur surgery in December.
This past year, 2009, seems like it was a busy one.I spend the first part of it on crutches and moon-booting around after surgery. The busy-ness for me was especially true since June 1st much of my life has been juggling my full-time job and my full-time graduate school work with all the rest of what I do. I’d say over all 2009 was a pretty good year for the RP/Moonspun family. We have challenges, but we have commitment and we work hard on our lives, our family and our marriage.
I can only imagine what 2010 might bring. If all goes as planned by the end of this year I will have finished my master’s degree. Lil moonspun will be turning 10 this summer and if she keeps learning her lessons of taking care of her things will be getting her ears pierced. We will get to spend 4 weeks with lil rp#2 over the summer, out longest time yet and that’s something to look forward to! And hopefully, I’ll get my ass back to running and exercising regularly.
I guess it’s been quite a decade of change for me, now that I’ve written all that! I completely changed my life! I won’t think about how at the end of this decade lil m will be 20 and in college. I can only take so much today!
Happy New Year and new decade!
