Wow, it's been a while. I'm being wooed by Myspace.....I find myself going there more and more. In truth I've only been coming back here to check my friend's blogs...I feel like I'm having an affair...I will remain faithful to Blogspot. For now....

Not much new here....we joined the YMCA which has been revolutionary for me. People have asked me what made the difference and I really don't know. Maybe it's the availibility. But I really think it's the childcare. It comes free with the membership and I could leave all five kids there. I go in the mornings though so it's usually just Sydney and Thomas. Sydney just loves it. Thomas doesn't mind as long as there is someone to hold him constantly and give him bottles on demand :)Then I go and swim laps or use the treadmills and weights. It's so great. Never thought I would say that about exercising. But there it is. Hopefully I'll start to see some change.

Life trudges on...can't believe we're half way through January....golly where does time go?!?!?

Whew...well another holiday season has come and gone. Hard to believe...I spend so much time getting ready for Christmas that once it's over I feel like I blinked and missed it! We had a great Christmas. There were some rough spots as we stopped to remember Grandpa and I struggled much more than I thought I would. He's just been a part of our Christmases for as long as I can remember. There was no one to burst through the back door at 7 AM singing "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas", no one to cut the meat at meal time, and no one to complain about all the noise. But despite our tears, we had a blessed day. Here are some pics..
