Goodbye 2009 December 31, 2009

2009 brought me the greatest thing ever. My amazing Alexia Rosemay! I will never forget being pregnant with her, and having her, and visiting her in the NICU, and finally bringing her home. The sleepless nights, the super long days. But, she is the single greatest thing that has ever happened to me. Other than that I can’t say that 2009 was such a great year. I have been jobless the whole year. Of course it’s great to stay home with Lexi, but it’s not so great on the checkbook.
I’ve “met” some people online who have endured terrible tragedy. All of it just makes me realize that life isn’t fair. These people shouldn’t have to go through these horrible things.
We are still living in the same house that we all hate.
At least Jacob is still blessed with his job. When there were times he felt like he needed to move on God always showed him that he is right where he belongs.
I wish everyone the best in 2010!

I know I shouldn’t make New Year’s Resolutions because I never stick by them and then I get all upset with myself. But, I am going to set some goals for myself in the coming year.

Goal #1: Get my weight under control! I just found out that my thyroid level is high and I will be starting Synthroid as soon as I can get to the pharmacy to pick it up. Hypothyroidism comes with PCOS, so it’s been surprising that mine hasn’t been high until now. My PCP wasn’t very proactive about the testing so I asked my ob/gyn and she gladly had it retested.

Goal #2: Be a better wife and mom. It seems like with stress and everyday life my job as wife and mom falls by the wayside.

Goal #3: Find a job. It’s officially been a year since I got fired from my last job. I need to step up the job hunting to another level.

Goal #4: Save money. That’s one of those things that I always want to do, but find it very hard to do. There’s always something we could buy with a little extra money…but really this isn’t going to happen until I find a job.

Goal #5: Study the Bible more and get closer to God. This is something that always ends up falling by the wayside when I get stressed and overwhelmed. I know if I would push this to top priority I probably wouldn’t get so stressed and overwhelmed.

That’s about it, I guess. Hopefully 2010 brings everyone closer to completing their goals and following their dreams!
