I know this year is going to start off slow and then skyrocket with the arrival of our new baby in February. The one thing that is a guarantee for the new year is that it will be an exciting and hectic one. I am preparing to set aside my own needs and focus entirely on my family. That's just what I have to do right now, even if it means that I will not have any time for creating cards or blogging--those things will always be there in the near future.
2009 was the year of being tired--yes, I hate to sound negative--but that is how I will always remember the close of this decade. Not that all of us mom's are not tired all of the time, I'm just resolved that that is one of the characteristics of the job. This year was a bit more tiring for me as I started it out working as a substitute teacher, a part time job but a very stressful one at that. We survived an entire kitchen re-modeling project that turned our house on it's head for four months. And now as the year ends my pregnancy is slowing me down more and more as my husband works faster and faster to get a new bathroom installed before the arrival of the baby.
