2008

Happy New Year everyone! Ahhhh I just smell "newness" in this year. I'm not sure what that smells like, but it's in the air. I didn't do a whole lot...I did stay up and watch the ball drop. I'm usually in bed by the time. But I will say I did have a great time.

No resolutions this year...just learning to be...to be where I'm at. I have finally discovered the secret to healing! The secret is that there is none. You just do. You just learn to be where you are and little by little things change for you. Time goes by each day and new things happen and the realization that life never stops changing really sets in and becomes okay. Because really that is one of the hardest parts...becoming okay with the fact that your life has really changed and will never be the same as it was. And while it's never the same, that doesn't mean that new things will not happen and bring new life. With all that said, I'm doing good. I feel refreshed.

I'm meeting with my mom and sister's for lunch today. I hope everyone is taking the opportunity to get in their black eyed peas. At least a spoonful. We do every year without fail. River Smith's is having free black eyed peas today, so we're going there. I need all the luck I can get, so I'm just not taking any chances that me not eating black eyed peas would mess up my year. :)

Well I'm on the countdown for school to start back up. The kids have done great, but it's time. It needs to happen. However, I will say my house has been so clean since I've been able to be home everyday. I've gotten a lot done. Madi is going to spend a day or two at my parents house today. That will help me out. Anyways, well I need to get up and get around. Happy 2008!!!

I'm not really sure if the peas worked on you last year, but I have a strong feeling that they're going to work this year. They're going to kick in any day now (if they haven't already)!
