Out with old..... In with the COLD!!! I don't know much, but the new year has certainly brought winter in full force! It is absolutely freezing outside!!
Hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season. Our holidays were very nice and seemed like they were over in the blink of an eye.
I had every intention of posting after Christmas, but decided it was probably best to take an extended break. I only took about a dozen photos between Christmas Eve and New Years. I left my camera in the bag and enjoyed my time with my family. It actually felt kind of good...... no camera, no FB, no blogging.....for two weeks. I know I worried a few people. Thanks for checking in on me. It is always nice to be missed:)
We spent Christmas here at our home with my side of the family and then we headed north to Cape Cod after Chrismtas and spent New Year's with Pat's side of the family. As I said, it was a whirlwind, but I am so happy that we got to see everyone. The kids had a fantastic time with their cousins. Nick got to spend his entire holiday break with Eddie and Sarah got to hang with the girls on the Cape:) It is just ashame that we don't get to see the extended family more often. I wish we all lived closer.
So here we are..... 2010. What will this year bring???
I am not sure, but I hope that this will be a GREAT year for our family and yours.
2009 was not an easy year for us by any stretch of the imagination, so this year has to be better!!
I am not big on resolutions, because they are so hard to keep, but I do like to try to set some personal and career goals each year.
One of my biggest goals is to find balance in my life. Like many of you, I find life is a constant juggling act and it is getting harder and harder each day to keep all the balls up in the air. Mother, Wife, Daughter, Friend, Coworker.....they are all important roles and not the kind of balls that you want to drop, but I need to get better about prioritizing.
Our family could be in for some really BIG changes this year....and I need to prepare myself. I say that with baited breath, because I feel like I have been saying it for 4 years, but I think I can say it will a little more confidence this year. In all likelihood, we will be getting a referral from China sometime in 2010. We are 39 log in days away from referral. Time will tell.......
I will be by soon to catch up with you all. Hope your year is off to a great start!!
