HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Well as 2008 comes to a close; I am going to take a moment to reflect on the good, the bad, and future!
In 2008, a lot of GREAT things happened:
Nov 11 - we welcomed a niece! Jayme is so sweet and healthy
Sept 1-My credit union merged with State Employees Credit Union-which should open a lot of doors for me!
The boys both turned a year older and are happy, safe, and healthy
We as a family attended church just about every Sunday!
We had our family vacation to PCB with Mom, Scott, and the Johnston's!
Joe and I both have jobs and we were not unemployed at any point this year...
We cleaned out and de-cluttered...which we need to do again.
Cayden's "sperm-donor" left as fast as he entered into his life! I am so thankful for this!
My marriage is a happy one...one more year that we were together and loving life!
My Granny (the last grandparent I have) spent the Christmas holiday with us at our house
Uncle had a victory over Paulding County Schools
In 2008, there were some negative things that happened
In the spring my grandfather passed away
The "sperm-donor" showed up on our front door steps - one Sunday this summer
The gas prices(when they were so high)put a major strain on the checkbook
Jeffrey had some issues - which it seems he will rise above
In all I think 2008 was a good year...
For 2009, I see a bit of the same drama. However, this year,2009, I will not let it affect me or my family. If you have issues that are going to disrupt my family...you know where the door is! I will be able to pay somethings off this year which in turn will give us more money to do fun things as a family. In 2009, we as a family will be doing things in/for the community. I challenge you and your family to do the same. We will be more GREEN in 2009. I will take more pictures, more bubble baths (or something else to relax...bubble baths go against the going GREEN), walks in the neighborhood with Joe and the kids, visit new places,dance, spend less money on unimportant things, pray, be more thankful, donate what we do not use any more, love easier, work harder, play harder, have more husband and wife time with Joe, have alone time which each individual kid, have Jayme at least one weekend a month, laugh at myself and all my silly ways, be a better old friend and a great new one, and just LIVE MY LIFE to the fullest and on my TERMS!
So in closing...
May you & your family have a wonderfully blessed 2009!
