This past year has gone by faster than any other chapter in our lives. I feel like I must have have ridden an escalator from January through August. I wasn't moving my feet, I was standing still, but somehow everything was rushing past me. Where has the time gone?
While 2009 was full of so many amazing things- watching my kids grow, getting in shape both mentally and physically, love filled visits from friends and family- we are really looking forward to 2010.
We've got a busy year ahead of us.
Christopher was supposed to retrain into a new job this year, but his training was cancelled. We were so looking forward to moving and creating a home for ourselves somewhere else, away from the trapping heat of Texas, so the change of plans was crushing. We believe that everything happens for a reason though...
This year we'll be credit card debt free. Something that we thought would never happen. We've made strict changes to our lifestyle, and we've stuck to them. Money is the root of all evil, isn't that what they say? Well, never again, not for us.
We'll be upgrading our car this year, from our trusty tracker, to a minivan. When we bought our car (back in 2006 before moving from Washington to Texas), we bought it with the intentions of having a family. However, we had no idea that we'd have Sasquatch children that would take up every bit of breathing space. Its time for something bigger, and better.
Christopher and I are running our first 4 mile event together this January. Neither of us have ever run 4 miles without stopping before, this will certainly be a challenge. We're going to train hard the next couple of weeks.
Christopher is going through ALS (Airman Leadership School) from January through March, as part of his Staff Sergeant training. He won't actually be promoted until the summertime though, the Air Force loves to make you wait around for things. We're very proud of him.
This year I'm going to learn how to sew. Its been in the back of my wants for awhile now, and with all of my accomplishments in 2009, I have no doubt that if I put my mind to it, I can sew a straight line. We'll see how that goes!
2010 is going to keep us on the tip of our toes, that's for sure. I can't wait to watch our future unfold.
Oh, and there is one other thing, but, we can't let the cat out of the bag just yet. Stay tuned?
Anyways, Happy New Year!
