As long as I can remember I have always wanted to be older. That is until I turned 28..Suddenly I realized that many years had escaped me. Now I am getting older way too fast. My kids are growing up too fast. My life is passing before my eyes and I am not ready. I haven't accomplished anything yet. "15 there's still time for you".. where was five for fighting when I was wishing those years away.
2010 has not been a good year. In fact it probably goes down as one of the worst years of my life so far. But it has been a year of growth(not physically, I hope) in fact I may have aged 3 or 4 years this year in knowledge and understanding. However, amongst all the hard times I still feel blessed. I still have great family and friends and everything we need to survive as a family.
List of good and fun things this year

I believe we are the masters of our fate. We can't control some things but we can control how we get through them. In about 24 hours I turn 34. This year is about having no regrets, moving on, and making the best of things cause "every day's a new day"
I have a good husband ( a little grouchy sometimes) and three beautiful children.When I am not indulging in the joys of motherhood, you may find me teaching dance to kindergartners or coaching Special Olympics.
