Goodbye 2009

What a year of highs and lows.

I was joking with Craig this morning about how much money we had lost this year. Selling our monster house in VA is is tops on the list of things I want to forget about this year. Well, it was all for a good cause. I imagine we can call it freeing ourselves from a materialistic lifestyle and bringing our family home to a place that matters. We have surrounded ourselves with love, support, and simple comforts and living 500 miles away in a 5000sq.ft house never compared to this feeling.

I want to spend more time teaching my girls this year instead of just doing. I'm in the habit of just doing everything to get it done. I'm going teach my girls how to do the things we might take for granted. They are little, but they are no longer babies and I think it would benefit us all I let them have more input in our decisions. They're not going to be doing their own laundry or making their own dinner daily! But we can start with limiting our wardrobes choices for the day and putting our laundry and dirty dishes where they belong. :)

I want to travel this year. We're not moving again for a long time, if ever, so I want to have a family vacation. Disney would be fantastic, as we've haven't been, but I would be absolutely content with a little break somewhere closer. As long as it was interesting & not just Buffalo! :)

I want to take more pictures this year and write more stories.

I want to be a better mother, wife, & person this year.

And if by chance I finally find the natural blond hair I had and the body I once had this year would ABSOLUTELY rock!
