New Year, New Resolutions

So I only have two New Year's resolutions.

1. Lose weight

2. Start (and keep) a blog.

So far, I have procrastinated both of those as I am sitting here on January 2nd starting the blog and eating Reese's Peanut Butter cups.

I've always been kind of anti-blog but I was going through some old posts on a message board and got really nostalgic the other day. It is kind of neat to keep a file of what has happened on a daily basis so I (or others) can come back later and remember. I suppose all this nostalgia is just another sign of getting old.

I was offered a job yesterday, working at home. The pay will probably be terrible but I can work from home, when I want and however much I want so I am going to try it. If anything, maybe it will pay an electric bill each month or something. Or better yet, free up some $$ for savings. LOL! That'll be the day.

So Gabriel is 2 1/2 now. Where did the time go? Just the other day he started singing "Itsy Bitsy Spider" and he knew ALL the words. I remember when he couldn't even talk yet and now he is singing me songs! He has the sweetest little voice too.

Dominic is 9 1/2 months and advancing faster than Gabriel even. He is standing on his own now, walking along furniture, eating solid food and starting to babble. He has four teeth already, I can't believe it. Where did my baby go?

Things are going well for our family. We always want more but when we look back at what we've had, we're doing real well. To think that just this past July, we moved here with nothing but beds and now I am freecycling to free up space in the house! I mean, I haven't decorated anything but the bedroom yet. That is coming. But we are comfortable and have everything we need and I feel blessed for that.

You will love having a blog! I look back to my early posts when I was trying to concieve Adam and I've already forgotten the heart ache I had. I am glad for the reminder because it has taught me to love Adam all the more.

I also print my blog every month so that I have a hard copy just in case. Welcome to blog land!
