The last day of 2010 started off with a lot of excitement around here. We woke up to Tornado Sirens. I'm terrified of storms so I woke up the entire family and ran in and grabbed Harper out of her bed and made a bee line for our closet. It was about 6:20. Harper went to bed late and this was probably the one morning she might have slept late but I wasn't taking any chances. Luckily it blew over quickly but near us a small town was hit and three people were killed. I hate living in tornado alley. And it's SO WEIRD to have on in December.
I've had to be realistic and remember I'm going to be very pregnant or have two small children through this year. My goal is just to survive and try not to ruin their childhood. ha!
I can't imagine setting weight loss goals or organization goals or even spiritual goals this year. In fact - my goal is to slow down. I have a feeling Hollis is going to force me to do just that. I want to try to capture every moment with my two girls and just treasure these days because they are so fast. I'm pretty sure this year will be a whirlwind and I won't remember half of what goes on. (Thank goodness for blogging).
I don't have to sign up to serve our church in every need I see in the bulletin - because that is my first tendency. I don't have to be the first one to answer an email when one of my friends needs a sitter or help. I will try - but I don't have to. I can let my self off the hook a little because these two little girls right now are my mission field. Serving them and taking care of their needs IS and should be my main goal this year. And Scott - I'm trying not to forget him in the midst of the crazy life of motherhood.
And probably cry about how much I miss having a toddler and a baby at home. :-)
Happy New Year Friends!!!!!
