It’s a new year. Does it feel like a “new you” ?? Not so much over here lol but I am trying to take things a little slower and a little easier. That is kind of my new year resolution. I used to do the usual, loose weight and eat healthy resolutions but I have found that after 24 hours I always quit. I tried to quit smoking for about 7 years in a row on New years and never did, I only quit when I really wanted to and that was because I wanted to get pregnant and would not smoke while trying or while pregnant. well my daughters almost three and there you go, I’m smoke free so yeah, needless to say resolutions don’t work for me.
I hope everyone had a great holiday though and a wonderful new year, I truly did. I have never felt so blessed to have my child with me as I did this year with all of the tragedy that surrounded us in Sandy Hook, and in Oregon it was pretty devastating. Life does go on, but when you think of what those innocent souls families were going threw on the holidays it seriously makes you appreciate the children you are blessed to have in your life that day, every day. Moving on is the hardest thing to do on those darkest days. Ugh! I cant even stand to think about it subject change!!!
Well we went and spent the holiday season with my husbands mother in Kentucky. She had time off and since we are moving to California in 2 months we wanted to be sure to spend this holiday season with her and our KY family as it may be our last for a few years, unless they come to spend it with us. It was wonderful we decorated the tree and the house. I always go there and take over, she doesn’t mind though lol she wouldn’t even do any decorating if it weren’t for me. She will now though because she is dating a man that literally dresses up as Santa for his grandchildren on Christmas!! It is like the Grinch living with Santa HAHAHAHAHAHAHA to funny but I love it. Of course we had gifts for our daughter climbing the walls and I sneaked in that gift my husband wasn’t expecting. Everyone got what they wanted but most of all we had each other and that was all that mattered. I’m going to miss my Kentucky family next year for Christmas.
If you were paying attention, I mentioned before we are moving to California in 6 weeks! Yes, it’s true! We are moving out of St.Louis (Scott AFB) to Travis AFB so being as all of my family is in Oregon and Washington I will get to spend the holidays with them for the first time in 6 years. i am so thrilled, but I wish I could just blend both of our families together. I seriously need to win the next half a billion lottery and build a compound. My families can drive me crazy but I couldn’t love anyone more.
Short but sweet entry but it’s like midnight and I am beyond exhausted! I’m looking forward to sharing more stories with you this year and I am sure I will be on here talking a bunch about our move. We are so excited!! Thanks for being loyal to me and still liking my page even though I haven’t been around, but a busy life is a great life. if you are busy in a good way 🙂
