A New Year!

2011 is here. Wow. 2010 was such an incredible year - how in the world can 2011 top it? I know that there are many great things coming our way this year. Kris and I are anxious to watch Sadie begin to crawl, listen to her begin to talk, and see all the other fun things that go along with a developing baby. But then again, I'd be happy if we could freeze her as she is. She truly made 2010 a year we will always cherish.

Enough of the sappy baby thoughts.'s weird to think that I was born in the 1900s. When my future grandkids learn that I was born in 19??, they are going to think I am so old. My birthday is in a few days, and just this afternoon I asked Kris - how old am I going to be? Oh dear, I already feel old. I don't need grandkids to make me feel that way. Sometimes I get this weird ache in my lower back/hip area. Old. Going to bed before 10:30 (which is very rare) makes me happy. Old. I already worry about how old I'll be when Sadie is in high school, college, gets married, etc. Old. I am getting a few wrinkles around my eyes. Old. Then I think about how many years I still have ahead of me - hooray! Young!!

2011....I need to get in shape this year. I say that every year. Maybe this will finally be that year.

2011....I want to see my family more often. I wish it was easier. I wish we lived closer.

2011....I need to get organized. And stay that way. Not just get organized the first week of January.

2011....I want to become a photographer. ha ha! Or at least learn how to correctly use my new camera.

2011....I would like to be able to post a blog that doesn't put the reader to sleep.

2011....I would like to have at least one person read my blog.

Happy 2011 everyone! I wish you a wonderful year!

Yay for a Traci blog- love it! I have the exact same resolutions. I actually like "Traci at Home" as your title.

Doesn't 2011 sound so futuristic? But where are the Jetson's cars? And more importantly...where's my Rosie the Robot??? haa! Happy New Year!!
