happy new year!

just in case you guys were wondering what the hell happened to me...

our recent "homelessness" and the busy holidays has resulted in me not wanting to blog much lately. surprisingly i've been in a decent mood, considering how upside down our lives have become.

i have to keep reminding myself that i should be grateful for having a family that repeatedly does so much for us, a husband that loves me, a beautiful & healthy son to snuggle, and good friends to laugh with...and not dwell so much on the fact that we sold our house for a potential job that we still don't know if it's going to work out. i just crave the stability of my old, albeit boring, daily routine. lately my days and nights have no rhyme or reason. poor hudson. on the positive side, he's getting really close to his grandparents and cousins!

there's only a few hours before this year ends...

i have always been an optimist, seeing the world thru rose-colored glasses...

i think 2008 will bring great things.

happy new year everyone! wish you all love and laughter!

monkey see...monkey do...

We've made a few Starbucks runs during the madness of packing...
everyone needs a sip of perfectly brewed java during times of stress, right?

(maybe this is why Hudson is such a poor napper...?!?)

** in case anyone is thinking of calling Family Services on was only one shot espresso...not two... **

birth order and junk mail

1. my gramma used to say that two "babies" of the family (i say babies meaning "last born") make the worst couple because they are both... well...babyish. you know...the whole birth order thing...the youngest child is supposedly a little less ambitious, a little more immature, wants others to take responsibility, wants others to do things for them...blah blah blah. rob and i are both the babies of our families. and well...

we are moving out of our house in less than two weeks...

and i think we're both waiting for the other one to pack and get the house ready to move out.

2. we got 38 different flyers in the mail. i know it's christmas...but seriously...i counted...for real i counted...i'm not exaggerating...we got 38 DIFFERENT flyers in our mailbox...38 different retail stores! i didn't even think there were 38 different retail stores in the Ottawa area. call it procrastination from packing, but i HAD to count the pile because it was THAT big. this wasn't an accumulation of junk mail over the week. this was delivered all at once!

3. considering we don't have a forwarding address yet...i wonder how santa is going to know where to deliver our gifts?!? (excuse birth order is coming out).

Celebrating Hudson

Rob's cousin Robyn made us a photo video "Celebrating Hudson". It's amazing. I can't even imagine how long it took her to complete. It was an unexpected gift and we love it. You can find it under my "links". I'm warning you in advance that it's long...but Hudson's cute enough to warrent it!

I also included some of the blogs I check out daily. They're worth checking out...funny girls with cute kids.
