Twenty Ten

A new year. Where does the time go? We are just getting back into our normal routine here at home. My parents were here until this morning and it was wonderful to have them. They'll be back in just 31 days for the arrival of baby #2 (yikes)! Seriously people, one more month....I am truly in panic mode but really too tired to panic (or do anything) so I'm just attempting to get as much as I can done and not stress about baby #2's arrival. I'm not doing a very good job at that but that is a different post all to itself!
I normally make a resolution or two but this year I am finding that I have so much ahead of me in the new year that I don't really even know what my resolutions are. I prefer short-term goals, things on a list I can cross off. I'm staring at a list in front of me of things to get done in the next 30 days and it literally has about 30 things on it. I crossed a few off over the weekend but still have much to do. Those things aren't as easy to get done when you are 8 1/2 months pregnant and barely getting any sleep. I always put alot of pressure on myself to get things done and to get them done just so and in a timely manner. It should probably be a resolution to STOP doing that. Instead of worrying about little things that really don't matter, I should look at the bigger picture. So it is my goal for 2010 to slow down a bit and not put so much pressure on myself. I want to count my blessings everyday and show the people in my life how much they mean to me. I have an amazing husband, a wonderful daughter, and another on the way. I am truly blessed! So for now I am going to focus on not stressing the little things and enjoying the wonderful family God has blessed me with! Well, that and finishing the nursery! :) Ha!
Actually my immediate goal is to soak up every minute of time in the next 31 days that I can with this sweet little girl while she still has me all to herself. She loves to hug my belly and I love how sweet she is!


I think 2010 is going to be a great year for our family and I hope it is for yours as well!

Your pregnancy has gone by so fast for me b/c we didn't share this one together...no phone calls back and forth about whatever ailment we currently had. I hope you've had a *more* comfortable pregnancy than the last one. =)

You will get everything done that you need to, I have faith! And Happy 22 months to Julianne tomorrow! =)

Good luck getting stuff done...I can totally relate! My goal has been to balance the to-do list with spending time with my boys, with getting some rest. Another day or so and I think I will truly feel "ready" in terms of getting the things done that I wanted to get done!

Awe! She loves her Mama...and it will be an adjustment I am sure when the baby gets here! But everyone adjusts and I am sure it will all work out! She'll have a little playmate and somone to help take care of :) So glad you had a good Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Try not to sweat the small stuff. You're an amazing wife and mother. I don't know how you manage to do everything you do. I love you and can hardly wait for your new baby love to arrive.
