Life choices


This is going to be a big year, and I don't mean in the form of my belly! HA! At least I hope not. On New Year's Eve, The Man and I listed many of the things that would change over this next year. For us, they note worthy.*We will be debt free by April * Sam will learn to walk :) * Addison will really begin talking* our children will turn 1,3,5,6,and 9. Mike and I will turn 31 * Mike will graduate from the Fire Academy * Addison will begin preschool * We will get a family vehicle allowing our family to ride together and argue on the way to church like a normal family * I will submit my book to the publisher I have been talking with * We will move into a new, hopefully bigger, house that we own * Sam will say his first word * There is a decent chance we will not have a baby * Layla will start kindergarten, Isabelle will begin 4th grade, and Elijah will be a first grader * Eli and Layla will learn how to read * The Man and I will celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary * I will become a sophomore in college * Mike will earn his associates degree * I will get rid of my maternity clothes and any baby clothes that don't fit my existing children * I will get rid of much baby paraphernalia such as the swing, playpen, bouncy seat, pacifiers, bottles, breast pump, etc. * Sam will get more teeth so we can stop calling him baby squirrel * I will get a check from the Wheel of Fortune * I will get to buy $1000 worth of movies on someone else's tab * I will be on national television and Wheel parties will be thrown across the nation in my honor * These are just a few of the great milestones we came up with. I would love to read what the rest of you are looking forward to this year.

I love your year.
I want to wrote about mine too. Maybe tomorrow. Guess that means my "quit procrastinating" resolution isn't really working all that much. sigh.

Gracie turns 7 . . . Mom and Dad hit 49 years married . . . I become a first time Grandfather . . . Jadon gets potty trained . . . Sue and I go to Germany together . . . we trade in our 165,000 mile vehicle for something newer . . . we pay off our last credit card . . . we grow even closer to our friends at Hillside . . . I develop the ultimate solution for peace in the Middle East and end up winning the Nobel Peace Prize and making Millions of dollars on my book entitled "How I Did It, You Can Do It Too" and even though I'm the smartest, richest man on the planet it doesn't change me and I'm still as humble as I am today . . .

*I move into my own apartment. Alone. Well, except for Smokey. *I pay off my last credit card. *I FINALLY get a date (Please?) *I stop being a slacker and finish my first novel. *I (maybe) get a friend for Smokey. *I (theoretically) keep my new place organized. *I (only with God to see me through) run the half-marathon. *I walk to work EVERY DAY. (At long last! I despise snow!)
