Happy New Year

I cannot believe 2008 is over already! We have been living in Katy for a whole year. It is amazing how time flies once you are grown up. This past year was a lot of good and not so good.

When 2008 first started out I was miserable. Adam was always gone for work and I knew no one. I missed home terribly and thought we made the biggest mistake ever by moving here. To top that off my kids couldn't go to school! Worst of all I was certain my boys would have been adopted before the years end. Well, the year is over and not much progress has been made on their case. It really depresses me to think that a whole year has passed and we are no further than we were this time last year.

A few good things happened this year too. The twins birth father signed his rights over. After a few months of living here I really fell in love with the area. I love the convenience of living near everything and the people here are so nice. I started making friends and doing more. My friends have really started to feel like family and makes this truely feel like home. Adam went back to work for Delta and now spends a lot more time at home with us. It is so good having him around again!

I have high hopes for 2009. I really hope that this is the year we will finally adopt our boys and legally be a family. I am always starting and then quiting diets. This time I am determined to stick to it. I want to feel good about myself again. I want to be a better mommy to my boys. They are the most amazing kids. I still can't believe how lucky I am to have them in my life. I feel like a lot of times I don't show them how much they mean to me. I want to spend more quality time with them and try not to nag about the little things and remember that they are just kids. My boys WILL start school this year and I know that will be good for them and for me. I also want to get them involved in sports because I know it is something they will love! I want to make a budget and stick to it. Most of all I just want to make myself and my family happy.


  1. I am so happy for you! I am so glad and so fortunate for having you in my life. You are a awesome friend. Thank you for everything and for being there for me when I really needed someone. I will be praying that the twins get adopted this year. You are a beautiful person Heather and as long as you put your mind to it you can achieve anything. And those boys are amazing. You are very lucky mommy. You guys deserve to be happy girl and I look at you guys see happiness. Focus on the positives and work on achieveing your goals and you guys will be great! Love you girl!

  2. I don't know why, but the monster jam entry keeps on loading before this one, and I missed it!
    Well, I saw it now and this year will be a good year. Like we were talking about on the phone earlier (and I had no idea that you wrote this entry), it feels good to finally feel like home is "home." I'm glad you found it and good luck with the diet.... I will be joining you by the end of this month :)
