Then came December, and I had really hoped a lot more things would have happened in December than they actually did. I had hoped that Jed would have a job by that month, so that a normal Christmas could happen. With him being out of work, it put a huge damper on my Christmas spirit. It is a little difficult hanging a wreath and decorating a tree and wrapping presents if you are unsure as to what the next month holds for you financially. But I really tried to keep my spirits up! :D I baked with my Aunt and Creedence, and enjoyed yummy Christmas bread for days afterward!
I should have updated this blog a really long time ago, but motivation has just been hard to find these last few months. And I don't just mean with blogging, no it has been a struggle with almost everything!! LOL! But the end is in sight, and my energy and body will return to normal. :D
Signed onto the message boards today and got a shock that holy cow it is the 31st of December and people are doing their New Year's resolutions and stuff!! Is it pathetic that I only just remembered New Year's Resolutions happen right now? Seeing people talk about it made me go OMGOSH I totally forgot those existed. LOL! I do have some resolutions though! There are lots of things I want to do differently this next year.
What are your resolutions for the year? One other thing I want to do for the year of 2011 is OLW. I have been thinking about this for a little bit and am really excited to start. I will talk more about it soon. :D
We have now left the realm of Prima, and have moved into Crate Paper! :D This little LO below (I really hope I can share!) I made for this last CHA, and am actually still waiting for it to debut on the blog, but I think it has been long enough that it is ok for me to show. :D I love this simple little LO.
Last but not least, the first LO I did about our soon-to-be-here bitty one, made with Noel Mignon's Dear Diary kit. I poured my heart out on this LO because I needed to verbalize a lot of the fears and stresses that I had been feeling, in order to realize that this baby is such a blessing and that no matter what it brings will be wonderful. I think the biggest thing it will bring to each of us in the family is growth.
