Farewell 2008! I Barely Got To Know You!

PARENTING | | December 30, 2008 at 10:28 pm

2008! When did that happen? What does it matter, it is almost over. Why is it I get this giddy feeling when a New Year approaches? Is it because I was never “friends” with the older year? Or maybe the older year has so many things that I never got done? It must be the bitter memories of all of those struggles that we seem to have encountered. Surely the thought of a clean slate is something to get anyone excited.

Having two kids pretty close in age has meant for over 4 years I have been in the thick of craziness. Maybe this will be my year. The others certainly weren’t. Don’t get me wrong, I love my girls profusely and enjoy watching them grow each day. It just seems that I have sometimes felt like that hamster -in-the-wheel, running so speedily, just not sure I am getting anywhere. But unlike the hamster that gets good exercise I cannot even lay claim to that.

Ahhh, a fresh chance to start all over. What oh what will I do in 2009?

    You might as well have stolen this post out of my own head. I keep waiting for life to slow down for a minute so I can actually enjoy it!

    I agree. I have tried harder to do more for my kids that I can benefit or enjoy too.
