Baby Sweetness and an FO

Awww!!! The little man is growing so fast. Pretty soon my dd will be going back to work and I will be watching both grankids. It's a little scarry :)

It has be since forever that I posted an FO. I have completed a couple but have not gotten around to posting them. This is something I made for him before he was born. Although I do love the way it came out, I find that crochet looks a little girly. I have been looking for patterns that are a little more boyish, but I find that I really wish I knew how to knit better (I can only make scraves).

It Was A Beautiful, Proud and Historical Day!

I was glued to the TV. Michelle looked so stylish. The girls are beautiful and Mr. President you makes me proud. I love how they look so in love and happy. It gives me hope.


Don't they look happy!

It's A New Year

And I am hoping it will bring good things to you all. I am inspired by Oprah to live my best life and to put myself on my to-do list. Since I stopped working (outside of the house) almost 5 years ago, I have been trying to squeeze my own needs in between all that I do for my family and my house. But that is just not working for me. So I am going to try and prioritize my health and fitness, MY fun and friends; without feeling like i am neglecting my family. Let's see how it goes.

I have caught the facebook craze, it's fun but different. When I blog I feel free to express myself with a certain amount of anonymity. Facebook is only people who know you which makes me a lot more careful. I think the biggest difference is that I blog what I feel and I facebook what I'm doing. And sometimes I feel, who really cares, either way.

I am very excited about 2009. 2008 turned out to be a little bit of a downer, but I cannot complain. I have a new granbaby, my family is in good health and we are all still hanging in there. Things could be worse. I feel good about a new start in o9. I am going to try and focus on the things that are most important. Our health and quality time with those that I really care about. My new focus will be to simplify my life. Since my time is so tight, I want to use it only on things and people that are really important to me. And I want to focus on thing that make me happy. Seems like that is a no brainer, but I notice that many times I spend valuable time with too many people that I call friends, and then don't have time for those that I really love, and that make me happy. I also want to spend more time doing things that I enjoy.

I hope you all have a great 2009. May you spend lots of time with those you love and bring you joy. May you have good health and prosperity and time to do things you enjoy.
