……….it’s been awhile. That’s what happens when you have 2 kids and are trying to start your own business. There isn’t time to do squat, except facebook of course. Damn Boonie suckered me in and now I’m hooked. Somehow it seems like so much less work than a blog.
I hope you all had a great holiday. It was so busy I don’t know how I ever had time to hold down a full time job! Let me tell you, if you don’t already know, Christmas is so much better when Santa is involved. Watching Kenzie experience the excitement of Christmas and Santa was amazing. I have no doubt that each of the coming years will be better than the last.
I have some New Year’s resolutions that I’m sure you’re all dying to hear about, but I’m going to put them in a seperate post. Why? Especially since I’m going to write them back to back. Because I’m crazy and I can.
How many three year olds can say they got to vote for the President of the United States in a history making election? I took Mackenzie with me yesterday to vote. It was the first time for both of us. She got to pull the little lever. Hopefully someday she will realize how cool that was.
Now lets see if he will really bring about a change.
So our family isn’t the only thing growing. It only took one 3 hour car trip with my knees scrunched up to my chin because of the new car seat in the back seat for us to break down and buy a bigger vehicle. If we were smart and practical we would have bought a minivan, but neither one of us was willing to do it. So we traded in Darren’s car for this:
Let’s have a moment of silence for Darren, he had to trade in his beloved WRX.
On the home front. Kenzie’s cute:
And Ollie screams so much I think I’m losing my mind.
11:15 contractions start.
No real pain yet. For some reason I think that’s going to change real soon!
High blood pressure + big baby = induction
Wish me luck!
I’ve been in labor for over a week it seems. I’m still pregnant and I really don’t have anything to say to anyone until this baby is OUT.
Whoever says “if you go early with your first you’ll probably go early again” is full of shit.
So my Mom seems to be doing much better. She’s home and finally eating and starting to get around. I’m finally breathing that sigh of relief.
On a totally unrelated topic. Have any of you seen this? It leaves me speechless.
Today I turn 30.
10 years ago the thought of 30 scared the hell out of me. Then again, so did the thought of settling down or going more than a day without a beer. 10 years ago I never saw myself marrying or having children. All I saw was a big career and lots of partying.
But as I sit here with my arm around my big girl and my hand on my unborn child, 30 seems just right.
This morning I woke up to a kiss and a “happy birthday” from the most wonderful man in the world. He got up with our daughter so that I could sleep a little longer. A little later I was awoken again by the squeels of my daughter who was just as excited about giving me a birthday card as seeing Santa Claus.
I have a beautiful, healthy child, and another on the way. A sweet and loving husband. A safe and comfortable home. A new and promising business.
I’m looking forward to spending the day at the track with my husband. To welcoming our little baby into the world. To celebrating my 5 year wedding annivesary (and 10th and 20th and 50th). To enjoying what I do for a living. And to not always wishing I could be home with my kids.
Today, 30 seems just like the beginning.
And I am so thankful.
I got my first client.
I have a birthday coming up this weekend. (That deserves it’s own post.)
I just found a parking spot in all day parking, so I don’t have to move my car 3 times today in the 2 hour parking lot.
AND……….get this………..AND…………….I got my bonus. Oh yeah, the witch surprised me today and gave me what she should have 2 months ago. I have officially won that battle!
The universe loves me.
