Well here we are again about to roll into yet another year. Am I excited, a little bit this year will bring another child to our family and my husband will begin his new job in January. It seems like this year is starting off a lot better then last. We are actually looking forward to all of the new things the new year will bring and we hope that it will be better then the last. Our holiday was much better this year, we were able to afford to get the kids most of what they wanted, my older kids were very understanding and asked for shorter if not just as expensive items. It was a thrill to see how excited everyone was and has been since Christmas and I am happy to say that we are all looking forward to our New Years Eve celebration, just a small family gathering with loads of food and music. My husband and did not purchase gifts for one another this year so we have decided to use a small amount from our tax return to both get something that we really want. With the new year come new hope that things will be calmer, and less complicated in our lives but who knows if that will really happen. There has been so many thing that we have dealt with in the last 12 months and I am happy to say that we came out stronger in the end. This next year will also bring the graduation of my son from high school, its both exciting and sad. I am very proud of all of my kids and especially my teens, they are very supportive and helpful when they want to be.
Its the year of the Tiger and we are very excited to see what it holds in store for our family. From our family to yours Happy New Year

Tuesday, December 1, 2009
Well this has been one serious strange couple of weeks. It turns out that I was ill most of the week before Thanksgiving and that put be so far behind and then Thanksgiving knocked me right back. I feel like I am about 5 weeks behind, I had to turn in my paper late and in both classes I have not posted to the discussion board. I found out about a week and a half ago that I am pregnant and It explained the mystery illness and why I am nausea 24/7 which makes it impossible to sit and read or even sit to write. I cant keep anything in my body and I feel like I am going insane because I have not been able to even get a good nights sleep. I have decided that I will give myself the OK to start new on Wednesday and go from there in each class, this weekend I will be writing papers for both classes. I had to break down and order a cord an battery for my laptop because I have the feeling that I will be working from bed for the next 5 weeks. I can not wait to be past this stage in my pregnancy and I also cant wait to have a small break after the classes are over. I am just wiped and burnt out right now and I am really thinking about taking a little time off to get myself together. I hope the next few weeks go a lot better then the last two did if they don't I am going to go CRAZY.
