I think the entire male species is off kilter. Actually, I'm pretty such this is true. Boys cannot seem to remember one idea from point A to point B without distraction. Ugh! It is so frustrating!

I don't know how to impress upon my children how important education is. I never struggled during school (expect that damn algebra class in high school) so I just went along with the flow. D, struggles every day. I email and have conferences with his teachers and they all say the same thing - he is a joy to have in their class. Okay, great -- joy, how the hell can I convince him to pay attention, focus and if you don't understand, seek help. He's very social, talking, asking is not the problem, I don't know what is....but right now I feel like I have my hands tied and I don't like the way it feels.

and 2009 comes to an end

what an interesting year. Most everyone can say that the year brought ups and downs, good times and bad, but why bring the bad into 2010? It is a new start. Get rid of the baggage and move forward.

I've learned a lot this year about those who have in any way influenced my life; but as I've said before, you cannot change anyone. Each person is responsible for their own actions. The only thing you can change is YOUr reaction.

Goals for the year:
  • Simplify
  • Encourage
  • Be a good friend
  • Accept compromise
  • Get married (had to sneak it in)
  • Be a good mom
  • Get healthy
  • Try not to be judgmental
  • and with the help of my love muffin, be the best that I can be!
That sounds like a commercial of some sort. Wonder if I"ll get paid?

Farewell 2009!
