Happy New Year from me, too! and happy 28th birthday TO me...

Dan is taking his parents to the airport now. It was a nice visit... 48 hours is perfect -- especially when they stay with MY parents. I love my ILs, but my MIL can be a fatiguing person to be around. She is very nervous... worries a lot about what she says... not necessarily a bad thing, but I often feel "on display" and not like I can just let my hair down and be my imperfect, brassy self.

Nevie is asleep. The house is quiet (except for the dishwasher... HOORAY! for having a dishwasher again!), and I kind of don't know what to do with myself. I suppose I could work on my application essays. Yeah... that would ease my mind a bit to spend 20 minutes on them. But first? Coffee!

Is Dan allowed to drive so soon?? I am glad I am not the only holiday bday though! Happy bday to you!

What do the essays have to say? I remember Bob doing those now but it was about 14 years ago....

Yeah, Dan wasn't put on any kind of activity restrictions. The calcium blockers will make him tired for a while, but it's not like codiene or anything.

The essays are different for each school. Washinton (UW) wanted a three-page personal statement about my goals, motivation, experience, preparation for a career working with different types of people, and the challenges I see for the field of PT. Eastern Washington just wants a one-page, handwritten autobiographical "sketch." Blargh! Univ. of Puget Sound has three short-answer essays: 1) How a PT works with [fill in the blank other medical/institutional professional -- I chose orthopedic surgeon], 2) two personal strengths and one weakness for this field, and 3) how my background has prepared me to care for patients from various socioeconomic/cultural backgrounds. Hooray for the Air Force! It's a great life-experience-essay helper.

Thanks for the birthday greetings! I'm about ready to open up my present to myself: a bottle of Walla Walla Vinters Washington Cuvee... a bordeaux red blend that is PHENOMENAL. And... it'll help me write, right?

Have we already talked about resolutions? I have a bunch that involve more organization, more writing, more financial moves, and better saving.

You? :

Happy Birthday, sweetie!

As far as resolutions:
Help us become financially stable
Get back in shape
Keep my sanity with two under a year
and...DON'T GET PREGNANT IN 2007! Considering I was pregnant in 2005 and 2006, I think this is a very good resolution.

Candice - wedding anniversary? congrats!

Welcome over everyone, I am sure if I go away from the pc for about 3-4 hours, you guys will run up 10 pages.

Meg- I will pm you but did you Bob to look over anything? His speciality is Orthopedics.

Sarah- I am on an all out search for a womanly Art book-
BFMama, any ideas??

I just finished my 10th game of memory in the last few days. Liz received candy land and memory for xmas from my parents. Last night she had a hot game of Candyland with Daddy and Grandpa.

Maggie used to be MAggieRoo in the nicu because of her kangeroo care, then she was Stinkeroo because she is a stinker! Now she is just Rugrat.
She is out cold right now after spending most of the day crawling backwards, rolling all over and then discovering the hardwood floors and scooting herself all over. I think she is a sensory person. She loves examing, touching and rubbing all textures. She also seems to be a problem solver- can figure things out instead of wailing. I also found her underneath her sister's dresser. She crawled backwards into it and her head was popped out LOL.
Too bad I am a green kind of gal. I might need hair dye since I might be gray by my next bday....

goals & resolutions....

I am hoping 07 is much much quieter than 06
Help my parents get a grip on life! Maybe get them working towards happiness.
Finish loosing all my weight I gained
save more money- we call this the year of the black, not that we are in debt but just build up the savings.
We want to do as much as possible- organic.

I have lots of things I want to work on. 2007 is the year of No Being a Sh$t! We have some specific financial things we need to do, and all the grown up stuff to do like get life insurance and draw up a will and start a 529. Ugh. Picking a guardian has been a whole ordeal, but it has to get done.

Someone got her the Lamaze inch worm toy, and she's now loving that. She also went to brunch with hipsters and behaved very pleasantly.

Happy New Year, Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary!


Resolutions - yes, I should write down a few of those. Thus far:
- Get all my family/friend b-days and anniversaries in my Outlook calendar so I don't forget them all like I did this year.
- Correspond with and call my aunt and Nana more this year.
- Get an emergency fund padded
- Buy some sin sticks
- Try, try, TRY to keep on this good cleaning stint I've been on, cause it's so nice to have the house looking decent.
- Discuss going organic on meat and dairy with DH. Those are the two more important ones, right?

That's all I can think of for now. CHEERS, EVERYONE!!

Oh yeah, a will is a good idea. We've been meaning to draw up a living will. Just need to verify with the BIL and SIL that it's o.k. if we put them down as guardians for Samantha and Jackson. The part that kills us though is if anything happens to both of us, it's totally up to B's x whether or not the girls have a relationship with S&J. And that saddens me a LOT.
