I have been holding a crow bar in my hands these days, instead of a camera. A crow bar that is almost as tall as me, and weighs half as much as I do. I miss my camera, but there is nothing like taking apart a floor! I was really scared at first, but now, I think I am getting the hang of it! It has been a good education in architecture.

2009 was such a good year! I managed to complete everything except for two things on my
list of things I wanted to do. I will make sure to complete them in 2010. This year, I am super excited to see how we settle into our new home! I am sure there will be much to learn.

Jin hurt 6 out of his 10 fingers while working on the house! Poor guy!! I had to scramble to find the box where we packed the bandaids!

happy 2010, friends! It is time to pull out the high ten!!

Hope you had a sweet celebration!
