New Year, New Me

It has been awhile since I posted, and well I am out of apologies. Truth be told, I have been so busy that I forget what I was going to write. But, as you know New Year's Eve is right around the corner so I will be able to make, yet more resolutions I will probably fail at keeping-Although I would love to not make resolutions this year, I feel compelled to start the year off with positive energy and a new found hope for something better.

Here are five that I have made and have never kept.
1. Eat healthier
2. let my hair, and nails grow one classic novel a month
4.Learn to love my body
5. run a marathon

five I kept
1. Do a triathlon-2008
2. marry Bob-1995
3,Have a baby-1998
4. Have another baby-2003
5. Begin homeschooling-2007

and five I will make for this year

1.spiritual-spend time daily with God and continue to grow into the woman he wants me to become
2.physical- to push myself, and continue to strengthen my body by doing a half marathon, yes I lowered my expectations.
3.friends- to not judge,criticize, or assume I know any one's life story, but instead listen more and talk less
4.Family- To become more positive in my role as a stay at home, homeschooling pilots wife. Allow time for just my husband and I so that we may continue to grow closer together and be an example to our children. To stop and answer my children's endless questions, savoring the time I get to spend with them. To love my children as individuals and get to know each one of their unique gifts.
5. personal-To take more time to post on my blog, which has taught me the love of writing, the healing of humor, and the support of a friend.

Now these all sound really good, but I know somewhere I will get lost, sidetracked and forget almost all of these..My busy days of hustle and bustle,my everyday stresses, and life will try and take my focus off of my resolutions. I know too well, that I will become distracted, and unmotivated, but I will give it my best shot, let you in on the progress and of course, there is always next year resolutions.

What recession?

Some one said,"Santa threw up in my living room!".That about says it.

A quick overview

Well, we got back from Indianapolis without a hitch. I had to laugh on the way to the airport though, because without even reading my blog, Bob looks in the sky, points to an airplane about to land and says"He really should have his landing gear out by now, what is he thinking?", I just laughed out loud! He was like"what?, I'm just saying"... and so proved my point!
He was actually not bad, but of course he had kid duty and I had two seats to the right all by myself!

We had a great time at Thanksgiving. You know how you come back from a trip and people say "how was your thanksgiving trip?", Well, I can honestly say I had one of the best Thanksgiving trips ever! I have not been able to stop talking about it, or thinking about it! We went to the Broadway Lion King production, we stayed up late every night, ate great food everyday, went to the Indianapolis Children's Museum, and played in the snow, all with some really great family and new friends!And next year Jon, I will have that cup! Its Mine!

Well, we returned home late Monday night, when the weather turned to 17 degrees, it was time to come back home!And we were so tired and all a little sick, I don't think Bob noticed the pilots flaws this time.

We are all feeling much better and are getting back into the swing of things here.Bob took off the day after we got back, and I haven't see him since! I don't know if it was too much "family time", or if his boss really needed to go hunting somewhere in Texas in the middle of Christmas~

We are getting ready for the big guy to show up on X-mas Eve! The house is getting decorated, the cookies are getting baked, the presents are bought, the Christmas carols being sung...and if you believe that well... let me tell you about some flying reindeer!
