Living in the Past

I’m starting to worry about myself.

I’m starting to live in the past.   In a manner of speaking.

I can’t wrap my mind around the fact that it’s not only the last day of 2009, but the last day of a decade. 

A decade.

A very busy decade.  I’ve done more in this decade {I’m pretty sure} than any other decade of my life……..I guess it’s no wonder it’s flown by.

Parenting by Dummies got me thinking this morning. 

What have I accomplished this decade?  As I mentioned earlier.  Lots.  For me.


Giving birth.  To a bunch of kids.  That’s a lot of months busy being pregnant and lactating, let me tell you! 

Celebrating a decade of marital bliss.

Graduating from college.  After dropping out the previous decade 2 classes short of degree.

Getting published for the first time.

Starting a blog, and sticking with it.

Finding out that I LOVE writing.  Even if it’s just a few short sentences a day.

Dreaming about getting my graduate degree.

Finding a love of service.

Moving.  A lot.  Coast to coast, North to South.

Meeting new friends.  Like you. 

Thank you for sticking with me.

I told you a few days ago that I was having a giveaway to thank you for following me over to my own domain here at WordPress.  Mark your calendars.  Monday, January 11th-Friday the 15th are the big days.  I’m giving away some of my favorite things each day.  Now, don’t get too excited.  I’m funding all of my giveaways so we’re not talking anything like my new favorite thing, my Ipod touch {thank you, Jeff}, but, what I am giving away are pretty great in my humble opinion.
