New Year, so guess that means a resolutions list?

But I have no other goal or resolution other than to somehow survive being the mother of 3, home school Rachel, run 2 small businesses from home and stay sane.

2010, what a year. But compared to 2009 it was a great year.

*I moved to CT, then moved again to our lovely house, i love this house and I love living near the beach.
*Fell very very much in love with the Geek, he really is wonderful and the more I know the more I marvel, may it be a lifetime of discovery.
*Made a home for the Pinklets that they are thriving in. Case in point this morning Caleb woke up with a swollen eye from his sinuses due to a cold he has, he went to Yme’s side of the bed for comfort and crawled in with him. My kids think he is the sun, moon and stars.
* Got divorced
* Got knocked up rather unplanned, but as things go it means that the 2 Pinklets now will be closer in age to #koos which I think is a good thing.

All in all many good things, it was a steep learning curve on many of these and not always easy but i feel like 2010 was like the foundation, now we build.

  2. Nice list. You’ve had quite a year. I hope your 2011 will be just as fabulous. I suspect it is going to become interesting come March when you have #Koos.
    As for me, for now I just want to stay one step ahead. Of everything. And as you know, this is so much easier said than done.
