For me, 2009 is filled with so much hope. First of all, I hope there will be less death in my family. Secondly, we have a new president who has promised us new hope for our country. I hope for a better economic outlook for our country in 2009 with less people losing their jobs and houses and more people who are able to enjoy the American dream once again. In 2009 Ava will start Kindergarten at Blue Oak which is just amazing to me. Before she starts Kindergarten, I hope to learn how to spell the word correctly. For some reason, I can never spell Kindergarten the right way and I am usually a pretty good speller. I am now looking into whether Ava will start in a tradition Kindergarten class or a Montessori. I know she will do well wherever I put her but I want her to excel like I know she can. I know, she is only 4, but every parent wants their kids to work to their potential right? In 2009 the babies will be turning one and will learn to walk and talk and I know I must sound crazy but I am so excited for that. I know our house and life will get crazier when they are walking but I also think we will have so much fun with them.
So, here I am putting the new miserable behind me in 2008 and starting with a fresh, positive outlook in 2009. I want to do more things for me – maybe get in shape, pick up a hobby and enjoy life.
Until next time, the mothership is signing off.
