Recap on Goals for 2008

I made a list at the start of 2008...let's see what I've accomplished:

Here are a few things that I hope to accomplish in 2008:
1. Get married to Caleb :) (We're thinking about June now) - DONE, May 25th to be exact
2. Learn how to play tennis (lessons scheduled to begin next week!) - WELL, only did it for a few weeks
3. Learn how to play either the guitar or violin - NOPE
4. Keep going to the gym to try and stay healthy - Consistently...I'd have to say NO
5. Buy a home - DONE!!!!
6. Continue attending my knitting group, keep building those friendships - YES...although I'll admit I've not been so great at keep in touch with people lately...
7. Be nicer to people - STILL WORKING ON IT!
8. Look into volunteering with an agency - I LOOKed into it...but never committed....
9. To be continued...

Some things to add to that:
- Went to Malaysia this year
- Baby on the way!!
- Any others??

Some things I've learned (or relearned) in 2008 . . .

1. Don't let a mattress fold over when moving...the springs could pop and create a mountain in the middle of the mattress making it practically impossible to sleep.

2. Don't move during the month of December. There is just too much other stuff going on.

3. Accept the fact that if you have three dogs...you will have to clean up after three dogs.

4. You can't change people.

5. Try your best to get along with all co-workers.

6. The backup sensors on the car doesn't catch everything...especially if the white plastic pole is lower than the sensor. BUMP!

7. Write down the recipes that go over well. You won't remember how you made it the next time you want to make it.

8. Jesus is my Lord and Savior!

9. These are just a few that came to mind, more to learn (and relearn in 2009 I'm sure!)

Merry Christmas!

It has been a nice relaxed and lazy Christmas day for us - had brunch at my Parent's house at 11am and did a little gift action then came home and took a nap. It was a great nap. It's nice to have a day to just lounge around. I decided I was not going to unpack or organize any of the boxes still laying around the house today. So it was a good day. Merry Christmas to all!

1st Sonagram

Well, there really isn't much to see yet...looks like a blob to me. But, it does have a heartbeat! No sickness at all...just so tired lately. I've been going to bed between 8pm and 9pm pretty much every night. It just feels so good to sleep!!

My due date was also pushed back a week, so the new date is July 18th.

It's been a while...

My apologies for not posting sooner...I've been sleeping a lot though. My bed time lately has been around 9pm or so. But, I do have Thanksgiving pics to post. (Maybe this evening) Caleb made a tur-duc-en for Thanksgiving (turkey stuffed with a chicken stuffed with a duck...all rounded out with some sausage stuffing). It was a lot of meat!

The latest news though is Caleb and I put another offer on the same house (they had dropped the price so we gave it another shot) and they accepted the offer yesterday! So, hopefully this week the inspector can take a look at the place and if all goes well...then our anticipated close date will be Dec. 18th. WOW - yes, we've managed to cram a lot of big events (if this goes through) in less than one year. WOW.
