Happy New Year! Can you believe 2008 is already over? I feel like I didn't improve myself at all, and I'm blaming it all on failing to make any new year's resolutions last year. So today I'm overcompensating, but not irresponsibly, I hope. Instead of setting goals based on quantity, it's going to be all about quality. So, with that, my resolutions for 2009 are:
  • Worry less -- Hope more
  • Consume less -- Move more
  • Trifle less -- Read more
  • Ignore less -- Give more
  • Demand less -- Pray more
  • Complain less -- Appreciate more
  • Hurry less -- Savor more
  • Talk less -- Listen more
  • Yell less -- Sing more
  • Spend less -- Save more
Are you excited about events in the year to come? I am -- many things! I am especially proud to announce that we'll welcome a new person into our family: Liz and Keith (Ian's sister and brother-in-law) are expecting their first child in July. Woo hoo! They are going to be such great parents.

May many, many good things come to your life.

Christmas looks so nice at your place! Keith and I also tried the real tree this year; thanks to two cats who have demolished the fake tree we had. :)

Baby update: Heart rate yesterday was 156 bpm. It was awesome to hear. However awesome you think it would be to hear such a thing, multiply that by a billion and you've got how cool it was to hear it. :)
