Why hello there!

Last night I spent a little while trying to catch up in the blog world.  So much is going on right now for many of my favorite blogs.  I also noticed the plethora of 2012 goals/resolutions.  Before I tell you mine, let me start by catching you up on where I've been.

We arrived home last night from our holiday trip to see family.  It was a great 13 days.  I miss my family so much.  Being back in New England was bittersweet since that is where where were supposed to be moving in the next few months until the stop move.  And I'm sure you remember how upset I was about all that.  I can at least say that Pat and I have hashed out a plan for our future.  Of course it's only written in pencil at this point, but I'm a planner and having a plan makes me feel a lot better.

The boys had an awesome time getting so much attention from everyone.  We celebrated Christmas up there and had a little visit from Santa last night for a TN Christmas this morning.  There is absolutely NO room in my house for any more toys.

So that leads me to the present.  We're now in 2012!  I know I entered the new year feeling a little stuck and at a stand still.  But really there are such big things in store for us.  In June we'll welcome a new baby.  Next fall/winter (fingers crossed) we may be selling our home and buying a new one in preparation for a BIG move.  I have another trip to visit family planned this spring, but I'll be flying with both boys alone (and pretty pregnant) so that is exciting and scary at the same time.

As for goals, I have lots of goals that I'm working on all the time.  So for 2012, I just want to have a broad goal of choosing happiness.  I want to choose a happy outlook at life and also to actively pursue happiness through the decisions I make.  Maybe I choose this since we ended 2011 with such a let down.  I don't want to let noise on the outside color my mood or perspective.  We'll see how it goes ;)

Happy 2012 everyone!  I hope the new year is filled with blessings for all.

It's good to hear from you! I'm glad you had such a good holiday with family (though I understand it must have been a bit sad). I think choosing happiness is a great goal!
