From 2009 to 2010, I've Come To Realize...

In the past year, I've come to realize (in no particular order)...
  1. No matter how much we clean, we will never have a "clean" house...or not for another 15 least
  2. My daughters will make me angry every day
  3. My daughters will make me laugh every day
  4. Laundry will never be done
  5. It's hard to live without a microwave
  6. I love when company comes to visit, but also love it when company leaves
  7. I love to blog, and wish I got paid for it
  8. I am very nervous about finding, or rather not finding a job when I'm done with school in August
  9. That being fit is a lot of work after having three children and being in your thirties
  10. That I would rather snack all day long than eat actual meals
  11. That my husband truly is my best friend, and I can't imagine my life without him
  12. Although Peter is my best friend, there's something about having girlfriends in your life...I love all of mine and treasure them all, and in very different ways and for very different reasons
  13. Our house will look the way I want in about 15 years...with the furniture and decor that we want (not that our kids need, want, have)
  14. Our children are a wonderful mix between the two of us
  15. The girls amaze me every day
  16. No matter how much I love my children, I am always ready for them to go to bed around 7:30pm
  17. I love to read, but once I start a book it's hard for me to focus on anything else
  18. I have LOVED graduate school, but am getting burnt out, so the doctoral degree with have to wait
  19. I have met some amazing people in grad school, some of which have become amazing, true friends: Barb, Deb, Maureen, Jen, Ashley, SD2, and Nicole just are a few
  20. I made a difficult decision in 2008 that I still think about daily, and wonder if/when I will not think about it so much, or stop going back and forth on what to do with it now
  21. My family is my life, and family will always come first--something I really admire in my husband as well
  22. That I will always be tired, even though I drink way too much coffee
  23. I'm very traditional, and always will be, despite my liberal, atheist views
  24. It's all one's life is more difficult, easier, or more fun--it's just all relative and everyone has their good and bad days/moments
  25. That after having children I will never be the same...I am more sensitive, proud, and emotional. In fact, I cry at the smallest of things, get angry quicker,and am much more protective
  26. I would love to vacation once a year...for 5-7 days
  27. My husband makes me laugh on a daily basis and is probably the only person that can always calm me down
  28. My patience is something I have to work on, but oddly that is not my New Year's Resolution
  29. I am much mroe grateful than I thought I would be to have my parents living so close.
  30. I love my life, with all of its roller coaster moments. It is filled with love, laughter, mistakes, mishaps, sadness, fun, and wonderful people...
