Where does the time go?

I'm 29 on the 29th. Today is the last time I'll ever be able to say that. Today is the last day I'll ever be twenty-something. Tomorrow, I turn 30.

I'm really surprised at how much this is bothering me. I do love my life the way it is right now . . . still, maybe I thought I'd have more by now. At the very least, I thought I would have clear goals. Ironically, the older I get, the less clear my goals seem to be.

Tomorrow night, my husband is going to take the two older children out to play after supper for a couple of hours so that I can reflect on my goals for the next year. Because, of course, in order to reach them, I need to define them.

Do You Blog?

The question came up on a local board I'm on. My answer, if I post it, will be: not very well.

I don't keep up with it, and am not really sure why . . . I'm certainly not at a loss for things to say on that particular board, but perhaps I generally need prompts to get the wheels turning?

I do want to keep up with it. Really, I do. Especially with our homeschool year starting in a week and a half. And I suppose I could say that I'm entering a new phase of my life right away . . . tomorrow is my 30th birthday. Maybe I'll get better at this then.

Welcome Anja Helena!!

Yes, we'll try to keep the blog again . . . not so good at the recording LOL

We welcomed our newest member of the family on May 24, 2008 - Anja Helena. She was born after a 20 minute labour in the (dry) bathtub of all places - a planned UC homebirth, but I wasn't planning on birthing her in the tub!!
