A Year of Change

A New Year...a NEW look for my blog. Exciting stuff, huh?.......Oh, but it doesn't stop there. This year will be bringing tons of changes and new things our way (whether we are ready or not).

"Change" scares the bee-jeezus out of me, Imma be honest with you, it always has.  I hope and pray that I will learn to embrace change as it comes, accept that change could be a good fantabulous blessing in disguise for our family, and approach all the crazy upheavel transition that is coming our way with a big ol' glad and happy heart.

What in the world are you babbling about already, Heather? I heard you thinking it, so I will go ahead and address the burning question for everyone else besides those two people who are regular readers of the normal OCD semantics that is my blog .

Chris got a great new job this past summer and has been away training for this job since August. Soon and very soon he will graduate from training (look for pics of the happy day coming soon...) and will embark to a whole 'nother state without us to start his new, exciting job.

It will surely be tough-going for a bit for all of us, but time has a way of working things out, and we hope to all be reunited in the exciting metropolis of Columbus, OHIO later in the year. Adios to NC.....Hello to the great Midwest!

Until then, pray for me. Please pray that I can handle 10 more months (but whose counting?) in single mom mode*(*hear scary music playing in the background)   Over the last 5 months, I have definitely had my moments that have shown me that I am just not cut out for this single mommy business. My hats off to the wonderful women that do it~Y'all rock! and I admire you so much.

But ME???  I really really really stink at it.  I don't have Daddy's deep, scary voice (or firm hand), and the kids know just how and when to push all of my buttons.....and sometimes I just want to call it quits & run and find some much-needed R&R in the closest mental ward.

Ok, I am exaggerating there, I have never, ever only thought about doing that a few times. All jokes aside, I know I fall short on many a'day, and some days the mommy-guilt kicks in bigtime.

Like when my patience runs out, or when I am really tired, or when I just feel desperate for help with the dreaded homework time* (cue the scary music yet again)....I could go on and on....but somehow we have managed so far, we have even flourished in many ways....the kids are still growing like weeds and seem to be no worse for the wear....that's a good sign, right?

I am sure we will make it through the next challenge that the new year brings all in one piece as well. Here's to 2010 and everything that comes our way.....bring it on, I'm ready!

Happy New Year, Y'all!

Oh wow. That would be a scary time. Single moms have it rough- very rough. I feel for ya'. Hopefully the time passes quickly for you and you are packing boxes before you know it! (Love the new blog look.)
