Happy New Year

A couple of friends of mine did a summary of the last decade and the upcoming decade on Facebook, and I thought that would be a great post for my blog.

In the last 10 years, I partied like it was 1999, I have earned my graduate degree, had two children, that were joined by our third this year.  I lived in two houses, said good-bye to two kitties and hello to two more.  Have witnessed three children rolling over, and crawling.  Sent two children to preschool, kindergarten and one to elementary school, often with trepidation, but only to be won over by incredible teachers.  Witnessed these children develop into interesting, caring and wonderful human beings.  I’ve been blessed by good friends, a great family, and a terrific husband.

The next decade will bring one child to her freshman year in college (she says Stanford), one will be navigating his way through high school, and the baby will be in elementary school.  There will be two more drivers to insure, boyfriend and girlfriend dramas, some of our soccer days will be ceasing, only to start again with the baby.  My husband and I will be chip away at our 1,000 things to do list.  My friends and family will be healthy and joyous and there will be more peace and love in this world.

I wish you a happy and prosperous New Year!

And oh so much more, looking back.....have watched hours of video of the last 27 years of the life of the Black family over the holidays, and have had lots of laughs and tears of nostalgia. For all of you peeps with young kids, grab all you can on film, as it is so much fun to watch together when all are older. They then understand why and how they are developed as older adults and positions in the family!
