I’m a sheep

December 31st, 2007

Okay, I hate to be predictable but there is a reason everyone does it:  the obligatory year in review post.

2007 has been one hell of a ride.

January – March I spent working at a job I hated and fretting that Sabrina was getting older everyday and would never come home.

April – early June I spent living in Guatemala with Sabrina.

The remainder of June was spent packing up our house in Pittsburgh.

July – October I spent adjusting to TN and enjoying being part of a 2 parent family as well as adjusting to being a stay at home mom.

November & December my world turned a bit upside down with the discovery that I am pregnant.  Bed rest and life style changes followed.

We started the year with no children in our home and are ending it with the hope of adding a second.  I spent a couple of months away from my husband living in a foreign country.  I quit my job and became a stay at home mom.  We moved far away from friends and family.  The only thing in my life that hasn’t completely changed this year is Steve – he is probably the reason I can handle all of the other changes without going batshit crazy.

Bizarre, bizarre, bizarre – but all in a good way.

Here is a picture of Miss Sabrina in January of this year and a picture of her yesterday with Abuela.

Happy New Year to you all!  I hope 2008 bring all of the blessings you desire to your lives.  If you are going out to celebrate tonight, be safe!

    That is one crazy year, girl! Here’s hoping 2008 is calm and predictable… well other than the whole pregnancy, childbirth, newborn craziness.
    So um, maybe I’ll just wish you a smooth and happy new year instead!

    Oh, what a year it has been. You certainly have had a lot of changes, but have handled them so well.

    I feel great joy for you as you prepare to add a second child to your family.

    I love Sabrina’s picture last year. The hat just made me chuckle. She is such a big girl now. Where did our babies go?

    Happy New Year!! Ring it in with some sparkling cider—-OH the joys of pregnancy!

    I feel the same way about this past year – I was trying to put together a montage of our year in pictures – I got so overwhelmd by my emotions of the chagnes over this past year and just had to cry a minute – our lives have changes so much – all for the good – but SOOOO much.

    I never imagined I would have six kids. I never imagined I would be 40 with two kids in college – two in middle school and two in diapers:)

    I would not change a thing – except for Buntarikas to be in the US going to the college of HER choice and living her dream – that is the one thing I wish I could change.

    Happy New year my friend – how excitng the next year will be for ALL of us:)

    Julia:)

    Ok – I’ve “lived” your life with you through your blog all of 2007 – but reading it like that makes me stressed!! What a year you had! But so exciting. I will continue to pray that you have a healthy pregnancy – and that you get off of bed rest soon.
