As the year comes to a close

Today is December 31st, 2010. As 2010 comes to a close I think about this past year and the year to come. This year has had it's ups and downs as does any year. Over all it's been a good year and we had a nice surprise finding out we're having our 6th baby :). I think I am more worried than excited about what 2011 has in store for us. We move, my husband goes back to sea duty and we'll be having another baby and our current vehicle is too small. Moving and going back to sea duty is something I'm honestly not looking forward to. I'm almost a little scared to do the whole sea duty thing again. We'll have 6 children and my husband wont be around much. It's hard doing it on my own. We're hoping to get orders to CT, so I can at least be near family. I would definitely look forward to that. That's another scary thing though, we don't have orders yet and we still don't know where we'll be moving to this summer. We need to try to sell the house and the sooner we have orders the sooner we can plan. This is one of the things I really dislike about this lifestyle.

With that said, I'm hopeful. I'm hopeful this will be a good year and things will get better for us in one way or another. I'm hopeful we'll get the orders we're wanting and I'm hopeful something good will happen for us as far as our vehicle situation goes. I'm very much looking forward to welcoming a new baby :). I'm looking forward to watching my children grow and learn and I'm looking forward to the new adventures we have to come. Maybe this will be our year.

I don't make resolutions, but I do have some goals. I want to be more optimistic. I want to be an even better mother, wife and homeschooler. I want to take more time to see the good in people and I'd really like to find a way to help us with our financial situation.

Happy New Year Everyone. Take care of yourselves, be thoughtful of others and give as much love as you can :).

Hey, I just kind of stumbled upon your blog. We just left Groton, CT in January. We were there almost five years and have four little kids. It is a great area to raise a family! Now that we have moved I truly miss all the state parks, recreation activities, and base services.
