Seek and Find The Bloggy Friends

*Yawn!* I am spending the first few minutes of 2009 sitting here sipping some hot chocolate, watching my boys bake cookies and saying prayers for a blowout 2009! It is late, but the boys are determined to stay up all night. I keep pondering about Felicity in Australia and how she is probably tucked snugly in her bed.

Lots of people love to make resolutions on New Year's Day, but I prefer to sit back and think about all the amusing moments that God gave me in 2008. He amazes me how good He is to me -- He truly is My Prince of Peace!

I have some confessions to make. My blog was kind of young last January so I had no idea that I would find so many amazing bloggy buddies this year.

Since doing something for your health is kind of traditional, I guess I will eat my veggies! I also want to continue to find time to share with my weekly lunch girlfriends.

As silly as it sounds I want to expand my vocabulary in the next year. Little Guy has been studying Greek root words and it has challenged me. I think I will start with the words musing and oikology. Aren't those just great words? I know if I get stuck I can always call on The Scholastic Scribe for help. Whew!

No one is ever going to mistake me for Supermom, but I love my boys and I can't wait for another year of spoiling my guys. Maybe we will just spend time doing a lot of little nothings, splashing in mud puddles, or tromping through the 160 acre woods. I just want to enjoy my time because all too soon it will be time to cut the apron strings.

One of the greatest blessings of this past year was definitely my twin nieces! So precious and sweet and I can't wait to spoil them this coming year!

If 2009 is like 2008, we will definitely encounter some storm fronts. We know for sure it won't be all lavender and roses, but with God we will be blessed with grace. One of the greatest things about blogging is that no matter what we encounter, we can share our various ventings together!

I know you all probably think I am stuck on lunatic most of the time. At points, I have even been afraid you might notify Dr. Wifey to make me a special chemical (ha), but overall I think you just realized that I was just living my life to tell about it. Some of you have taught me that this year and I really appreciate it.

One of my hopes is that some of the people who visit this blog each day will get brave and comment instead of just continuing to view from the buzzard roost! You are welcome here and I would love to hear from you. Feel free to share your own family matters!

It is getting late and I am really wishing I could go soak in a hot tub. (Not to mention the boys are calling me the computer leach.) However, I guess I better get a few minutes rest because no matter what time the boys go to bed, they will be up bright and early and ready for some "Bizkits" and grits. If I oversleep, I might be in the doghouse!

Live. Love. Eat. in 2009!
Sincerely Me,

P.S. Be careful out there during all this celebrating and don't forget! Support your local gunfighter!

P.S.S. One of the dangers of doing something like this is leaving someone out -- especially when typing so late in the night! If I accidentally leave someone out it was totally that... an accident!

What a cool post! You are SO clever! Happy New Year!

Willow said...

Crystal beat me to it! I was hoping to be the first to say how clever, funny and cute this post was! If you can do that half asleep in the middle of the night I'd love to see what you can do in this same vein fully loaded on caffeine and sleep! Very cool and with some blogs I hadn't visited!

Happy Happy New Year!!

A wonderful, creative post! I might use those Greek-root words in my next What's the Word Wednesday...and be sure that I'll be eating my black-eyed peas & cornbread today, too, like a good Texas gal should! Happy New Year to you and yours, Lady D!
