happy new 2011!!

you might have noticed that i hadn't done much blogging in the latter part of 2010......i'm not completely sure why, except that it seemed like everytime i went to write something, it came out sounding angry and bitter.... and i wasn't liking that, not even a little bit.....i've always considered myself a glass-half-full kinda gal, and the fact that i was having trouble even finding anything in the glass was very troubling to me........even worse was the fact that i couldn't really name or define any particular reason for feeling this way.......oh, sure, the usual tribulations of truckdriving were applied.....bad weather, not enough time at home, the holidays coming and no time to get ready, frustrating fleet managers, rough roads that made for little or no sleep some days.........



we were, of course, late getting home for our christmas hometime, but that blow was lightened by the fact that my niece and her kids (thanks, joyce, cj and cayla!!) had cleaned the house and put our tree up for us and had done our grocery shopping.......it was so nice to come home to a well stocked refrigerator!



we managed to get to stay home thru new year's day which was just what i think i needed.....not that i couldn't have used a few more days.....and not that i really got anything that sounds substantial done around the house, but the boost to my morale was immeasurable.....we just enjoyed time with family and friends, time spent just enjoying the lights on the tree......time looking out at new snow......time planning future home times and home projects.....



as of yesterday, we've been back on the road a full week.....my mood is lighter and i'm back in the groove and hoping to be a little better about posting here.....i was gonna say that i was making it a new year's resolution to post everyday but i know me and i know that would achieve nothing except to jinx the whole idea, so here's to 2011......let's see how it goes!!
