Out with the old, in with the new!

2010 has been a year full of ups and downs for me. This was my second full year out of work (except for the 3 months I worked earlier this year). That will change though because on Tuesday 1/4, I will go back to work full time.

School is going great for me! I'm waiting now to find out if I'm accepted into my major. Hopefully that happens and I'm on my way to getting my Bachelor's. The little one is still doing great in school. He has grown soooo much this school year with his reading! I'm amazed but I knew he could do it and I'm so proud of him.

The little one seems to have changed this year. He's really growing up and that's been tough for me. He's 7 but I guess I still want him to be my baby. It's so hard to believe that he'll be 8 in a month...where did the time go?!

Here's to a new year and possibly new beginnings. I'm looking forward to great things in 2011 and hope good things for everyone!

Merry Christmas

Well it's here finally! I can't believe this year is almost over. I'm usually somewhat sad when a year ends but I'm actually looking forward to the new year and a fresh start.

I think the little one is enjoying his day and his gifts. He pretty much got what he wanted, including a nice red Wii!! I have to say, I see why these things are SOooo popular. We've been playing most of the morning.

We did our traditional Christmas breakfast at my mom's. We came home and went right back to playing Wii. The little one brought home a pretty good haul. He got a lot of clothes which he's not really interested in but hey, I'm thankful.

Now I want to take a nap because we were up pretty early. We're probably going to my sister's for dinner and I also need to sort through these gifts. I have a feeling they're going to sit until tomorrow....

The 40 yr old mom

So, I finally made it to the BIG 4-0! My birthday was on Tuesday (14th)and was rather uneventful. I've been thinking about (and planning for)my fortieth birthday for the last 2 years but once it got here, I had no desire to do much of anything. I'm happy to see another year and very thankful!

I had planned to have a big party and greet 40 in style but that didn't happen. With me being out of work for so long and Christmas almost upon us, I gave up the party idea a couple of months ago. I may still decide one day to have my party but it won't be anytime soon (maybe I'll do a 40.5 party...LOL!)

I'm finally done with the semester and happy about that because the last week really stressed me out (and probably aged me an extra year). To celebrate me birthday, my mom, son and I went to dinner. I was looking and smelling good, so I'm good with that!

Happy 40th to me!!!
