I'm going to try and not complain this time.


I'm so excited for this year. To start off............I will actually graduate college after 10 freaking years of it. Not 10 years straight of course. Yeah, I'm a quitter. I have 4 months left and I'm done. I'm sure I'll go back at some point but I'm just excited to have a degree and be able to get a real job. Not one that pays $8.00 per hour and involves being someone's slave. Woo hoo! God that's going to feel good.

My birth mother will be visiting us soon. She is supposed to come to Ohio in May. I have not seen her in either 5 or 6 years. I can't rember when she left for Minnesota. I do know I'm thrilled she will be coming. She's never seen Taren or Nathan so they will get to meet her. It can get confusing for the kids on who my mom is because my step mom has taken over the grandma role. For personal reasons she moved out of state. Believe me, she needed to. I have gotten back into contact with her and she is doing very well. I'm so proud of her. I can't wait until she comes home in May to visit.

My new years eve was pretty plain. Dawn came over for a bit and then realized she was old and tired, (love you), so she went home. Tim and I snuggled on the couch, I dozed off and on for a while, then I caught the ball dropping and went to bed at 12:10. The girls had some friends spend the night and then the next morning, everyone left, including my daughters, and I cleaned the kids bedrooms and the rest of the house. It's nice to have it somewhat back to normal clean. That's the only thing I hate about the holidays. My house never gets cleaned up! Toys everywhere! It's frustrating. But, it's clean now. Thank god.

That's all for now really. I'll get some new pics up of the kids soon. I promise. Til then!

That's awesome about graduating. 4 months is nothing - although I know it can also seem like forever. I'm so proud of you! That's so cool about your birth mom coming up and the kids getting to meet her. You've got a busy 2009~
