The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of 2009 is that I have my 10 year high school reunion this year.
Will I go?
I don't know. I'm shy like that, and really, I start to feel nauseous just thinking about it.
I didn't have a bad high school experience, but I don't want to go back either.
And then there are New Years Resolutions.
I have a TON of things I want to improve upon in 2009, but my top priority is to strengthen my prayer life. And I'm not just saying that to sound holy on the internet. My almost dried up well of a prayer life is the root of many of my problems and frustrations, I think. I know I don't pray enough.
Sean's resolution is to stop being so awesome all the time. (Okay, so I asked him to type out his resolution, and that's what HE typed, and I'm so glad he took me seriously, and it kinda reminds me of this post where I talk about his confidence level).
Hattie's resolution is to do everything a little fancier!
She got some Fancy Nancy books for Christmas; they've definitely brought out her inner priss. They're cute books. A better spin on the whole princess theme, I think.
Mary Ellen's resolution for 2009 is to gain a 3rd chin :).
The girl likes to eat, and since we'll be starting rice cereal in a month or so, she'll probably be the first in this family to achieve her goal.
And we hope you all have a blessed New Year! And a safe time celebrating tonight. Sean and I have plans to go out as we have a babysitter, but we'll be snoozing in our beds by the time the new year rolls in, I'm sure! You would think I was celebrating my 30th high school reunion this year, instead of my 10th. I know, I know :). But I have babies and they're sick, and sick babies don't sleep so well at night, so I'm TIIIIIIIERD!
