auld lang syne

Let me think back over the past year and follow my ups and downs... There were several! To be honest.... way too many for my liking! I have thought and thought long and hard for the past month on what my New Year's Resolutions will be..... I have the usual-eat healthier, get into shape, take better care of myself-but then there were a few others that lingered.

One that I am going to work really hard on this year is being nicer to others. I am not a complete ass or bitch 24/7, although I am sure there are those of you who may disagree-but I can be pretty decent person. I am going to work on becoming a better person. Not just better for myself, but for and to others.

This year I have come to learn that I am a very lucky person. I have had some tough times, but I have never gone without. I look all around me and see the hundreds and thousands of people who have to go without, the families that have lost someone, or lost a job, those who are losing thier houses, and it breaks my heart.

I started out this year on the extreme cynical side, with no faith in the human race... My faith still dwindles with the kindness that is lacking in the world... but I still have faith.

I wish you all a Happy New Year... and here's to all our resolutions... Whatever they may be!!!

it's been awhile

So, it has been almost a month since my last post. It goes to show you all that work has sucked me back into it's pits of hell. Sorry! Just that I am back to work now.... and i am beat by the time I get in the door.

Not too much has taken place since my last blog... I have been pretty healthy which is so exciting for me. I never thought I would be this excited about actually feeling good for a change. The kids are all healthy at the moment, but they had their share of strep and ear infections.

Christmas is in just a few days, 3 to be exact! I love this time of year. As for the past few years, I have been pretty down in the dumps, not looking forward to the holidays at all.... But this year, I am excited.. I can't wait for the kids to wake up Christmas morning and to see their little faces... Oh, that is joy in itself.

I am only on my lunch break... so I do have to cut this short... but I am still here and will post again soon... PROMISE!!!!
