This is a pretty significant year for me and my husband. I've mentioned all this over the last year and a half or so, my husband finishes school in May. He'll finally have his degree. Surprisingly enough, it hasn't been too bad with him having lost his job. I did have to go back to work, as difficult as that seemed at the time, it's turned out to be a really great thing for myself. I actually enjoy getting up and having a purpose other than getting Devin ready for school and then plopping my ass in the chair for the remainder of the day to read! Well, and clean. But now, the cleaning chores are split up between us. It's a great feeling to know that I am helping out.
I'm hoping that our good fortune stays with us when my husband begins his search for a job. I have all the faith in the world in him. He's a pretty smart guy, and I know there's something perfect out there for him and he is going to find it! And then of course, I have to find another job. I'm already looking, so who knows, I might have something when Borders closes.
That's our goal for 2010. No resolutions. Just an optimistic outlook that with the right determination the things we need will find their way to us!
And if you didn't notice, I treated myself to a little blog make-over! Thank you, JennJ from Sapphire Designs, for doing such a beautiful job on my Avatar and Header! It is absolutely perfect for me. And a nice way to celebrate the new year.
There are so many good books to read next year. Either books I already have, or books I am eagerly awaiting. But I know I am going to really enjoy my first read to kick off the new year...Book two in Gail Dayton's new magical series, Heart's Blood. I'm really excited about this one, and not just because I drove all over Western NY (I'm only slightly exaggerating :P) trying to get a copy of it yesterday! But I have it and it's top priority!
Blessings to all of you for a happy and healthy and most productive year of good reading!
