Happy 2011!!

Happy New Year!! Can you believe it is already 2011?!? Time sure does fly. It flies by when you are working around the clock. It flies by when you are lying around doing nothing. It flies by when you don't want it to and it flies by whether you are looking backwards or looking forward. Time is a constant whether we want it to be or not. Time passes and things change. This year will bring a few milestones to our family.  My older daughter will turn 21 and officially become an adult.  She will experience intensive summer training for the Navy and start her last year of college at the Naval Academy. My younger daughter will graduate from high school and go off to college in the fall. She turns 18 this month and will become a part of the voting public.  My son will start his first year of high school in the fall and will find himself with no siblings to harass. Mr. Yesteryear Acres and I will adjust to all the milestones as we always do and will continue to pour our heart and soul into our family happenings and sweet doodle babies. Last night we went around the table and discussed our New Year's resolutions. We know better than to make resolutions that sound wonderful but are likely never to come true. Mr. Yesteryear Acres is never going to lose 20 lbs and look like he did when he was a young boy in college.  In that same regard, I am not going to lose 20lbs and look like I did when I was back in college either.  The days of wearing bikinis are long behind me but we both have vowed to work on keeping in shape.....even if the shape is a bit rounder than it used to be.  I am probably never going to become a certified accountant with all my notes and bills and paperwork color coordinated and in chronological order but I will try to become more organized and file my paperwork in a timely manner. We might not win the lottery, travel the globe, restore every room in our house back to its original condition or become lean mean fighting machines but we will do the best we can each and every day to do be good and to do good. We all vowed to become a better part of who we already are. To appreciate all of life's blessings. To love one another with no reservations and to help each other become all that we were meant to be. Our resolutions are to love life, love each other, love our doggies, our home and to be grateful for each and every day. Now that is a New Year's Resolution that is easy to keep.  Happy New Year to you and to those you love.
