reflections on 2008

wow, i can't believe this is the last day of 2008.

it certain ways, it was a significantly easier & better year than 2007. B & I were good, a few questionable moments, but they were fleeting; so that in itself made it a good year. yeah, ugly times are over & we don't even have to make an effort to be happy, it is just there.

Z had some craziness, but i guess that's expected with a kid....& that it's only going to get better (or worse) as he gets older. 1st grade has had it's challenges but he's learning what's expected of him & how to behave appropriately. he's a wonderful kid & i'm lucky to be his momma.

my mom is good too. the cvs takeover has caused some drama in her life, but she's adjusted. her health is good except for her knees, these will be a problem in the future, but thankfully the rest of her is good. i can't believe she'll be 59 in a few days.

we lost my Uncle M to cancer a few months ago & the wound is still quite fresh. i've made more of an attempt to be in contact with my aunt. i feel bad that the past few years i haven't made much of an effort to be close with my family.

to be honest, i've pretty much shut out the entire world. living here i've shut down & shut everyone out; not on purpose, it just happened that way. so i guess that i should make a new year's resolution to try get out there more....
& be friendly...

hahaha, oh you're not buying that?
or is that my conscience laughing in the background?
fine....the anti-cheerleader is not with it.
so much for a new year's resolution....i tried right?

anyhoo, on with the post:
oh, me, um, life's been good, i changed jobs. & no longer work for old boss - YEAH! new job is ok, pay is better, boss is better, but no challenge, B-O-R-E-D, oh, but have lots of time to blog & read. so overall i'm happier, no real complaints.

i'm looking forward to 2009. B's military career will finally be over & we will be F-R-E-E!!!!! if i play my cards right will be moving; B's researching nursing programs in Cali that aren't impacted. we discussed it & although it makes sense for us to stay here, i'd rather move to wherever we have to in order to shorten his time in school. my only reservation is moving Z out of school, but he'll adjust. i think we'll all be happier somewhere else.


  1. you gave up on your new year's resolution and the new year hasn't even started yet!! ha ha ha that has to be a record of some kind. :-)


tell me your thoughts...
