Top 10 things to happen to us in 2010

This final week of the previous year/first week of the new year is typically the time for everybody and their Grandmother to do a top 10, 20, 50, 100, etc. of the previous year. I am no different.

Here are the top 10 6 things to have happened to Mel and I in 2010.

6. Surviving the Snowmageddon
This was a momentous occasion because none of us may ever see that much snow in this state for the rest of our lives. It really was a sight to see. However, I did get tired of the "First, a White a White Valentine's Day!" jokes.

Look, nowhere in any of our American culture has there ever been a reference to White Valentine's Day. Everybody gets White Christmas, but Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, and Danny freakin' Kaye did not gather round the fireplace and sing about it being a White Valentine's Day. I want these jokes to stop.


5. New tile on the patio
Sorry, don't have a picture to provide. But it was a nice cosmetic change that took place early 2010.

4. The new truck
Purchased on the morning on New Year's Eve 2010, this just barely snuck in with time left on the clock. Very nice.

3. New door to the patio
Gone are the days of the heavy sliding door that ceased to slide very well. No more curse words. Seriously, towards the end there I think that in order to properly open that sliding door you would have to remove two of your ribs because you had to contort your body in such a weird way. Some people who have attempted to open it now have a few vertebrae fused together. (I'm kidding, of course. I think.)

2. Hair school grad
One year ago, Mel unceremoniously dumped quit her job, and went after her dream. Nine months or so later, she became an officially licensed cosmetologist. Her adventure, and career, is just beginning.

I'm very proud of her.

1. Rangers make the World Series
And we saw it all. This shouldn't come as a shocker to anybody who knows us.
