MY Newest Venture in Creativity

I've been toying with Photoshop.....and since Alyson is turning 3 on Jan 5th....I'm working on her party invite. What do you think?

It's Over

2008 has come to an end. I'm glad to see it go...sort of. No more babies for us. The babies we do have, are growing up SO fast that I'm demanding them to stop.

My sister has come and gone. It was awesome having her here for the holidays. The kids LOVED having her here to play with. I miss her terribly. I hate watching her leave. It was so awesome just hanging out with her and knowing she was here. *sigh* maybe someday she'll move down here to be near us.

I'm hoping 2009 will bring us some better luck. We could use it. I'm hoping my dad finds a job. He NEEDS it.

I'm hoping to find some more personal time to do things I want to do. I'll be 1 year closer to having SOME freedom when ALL the kids are in school.

2009 marks a big deal for me! Poppa bear and & I will be married 5 years!! That is amazing! We'll be together for 7 years on Feb 14th. It's my longest relationship EVER. His too, I think. We're hoping to celebrate somehow!

Tis The Season...

Here we are once again....Thanksgiving has come and gone and Christmas & Chanukah are upon us. Tis the season where I get royally homesick and down on myself.
One would think that 4 1/2 years after moving away, you wouldn't miss it all that much, but I do. I miss stopping by my best friends house just to chat and hang out. I miss running random errands with my sister. I hate that I moved away just as we were growing closer and closer after being so distant as teenagers and young adults. Just a teeny part of me is mad at my husband for moving me down here, away from the few things that made me happy. Now all I have are my husband and kids to make me happy. I hardly have time to keep up a hobby of any sort. I'm tired from morning till night.

It breaks my heart that my dad, stepmom, and sister are missing out on my kids growing up. All the silly little things they do that make me laugh and cry, they will never know. I really wish I had some more family here...someone to spend time with, laugh with, cry with, learn with. I've finally realized how my dad can be such a great friend yet I hardly have time to speak with him.

It's awfully hard to remember that moving to Georgia was a good thing sometimes. I know that if we had stayed in NY, I certainly wouldn't have 3 kids, heck, we may have only had 1. I get the wonderful opportunity to stay home and raise my babies BECAUSE we left NY. But, still....there are times that I really wish I was back up there.
