Goals and updates

Miss Jenna got her report card this past week and I am very proud of her! While she got As and 2 Bs for the nine weeks grades, her semester grades (the ones that really count) are all straight As! You go girl! That was for classes like French, Advance Geometry and Advanced English! This semester she is really going to have to work hard as she has a piano class and biology.... geometry is done for the year and so is her history class.... But, I know she can do it!

Braeden is adding words like mad. He is talking all the time, I just don't always understand what he is saying. But, it is obvious that it IS a word, just a little garbled. And many words are clear as a bell! This is really amazing progress for him. I think that he is close to where he needs to be as far as adding words. He still will need speech for some time to help with pronunciation. And he needs to work on using words in sentences and not just as single words.... but the difference between now and even 6 months ago is just crazy. It makes me want to bawl like a baby.

Malachai is almost two. 'Nuff said.....

I am trying to work on my writing skills and build up my ability to write timely and subject specific articles. I seem to have a problem with writing things that are either too general or on subjects that are over saturated on line. My goals for the next month or so are to learn to write more focused and timely articles...... any ideas for subjects you would like to see articles written about?

I still love my hair. And I am about to start working out at a gym. Maybe I can start to love my body more soon. One of my personal goals for this year is to get in shape. Mentally and physically. I am soooooooo tired of worrying about my blood pressure and having stomach problems. The weight loss would help with both of those. Quitting smoking would help with everything as well. I think that, mentally, I am almost at the point where I will be able to successfully quit. I hope.

ANother goal for this year for me is to write more here on the blog. I was doing so well for a while..... now I seem to never find the time to write here or to read others blog posts. I feel out of touch with everyone! I need to start writing poetry again and this is a good forum for that. So, look forward to angst ridden poetry and blog posts about potty training soon! I know! It's exciting! Try to contain yourselves.....

Mwuah! Thats for anyone who is actually reading this!

Sounds like things are rolling right along for you guys!

That's awesome about Jenna's grades and Braeden's speech. JT had severe speech and it took us 3 years of a lot of speech therapy BUT he's now right where he should be. And as for Malachai, I hear you loud and clear! That's pretty much how I would sum up Alex for his entire toddler years. People would ask and I'd say "he's two, do I need to say any more?"

Those are great things to work on, who wouldn't want to be healthier mentally, physically, emotionally, socially, sexually...I could go on forever...I'm sure that would sum up my goals for '09. Although I did sign up for Facebook to try and keep up with my family who have abandoned blogging for FB'ing. I felt so out of the loop!


Have a great weekend!

So glad your kids are doing well. I hope you will take care of yourself, espcially your health. I think in the coming weeks people will be interested in the incoming administration, human rights and legislative process. Of course, I could be wrong!

I talk to you all the time but reading your blog really fills me in on what is going on in your family life. We don't always have time to chat about all that stuff. Especially when miss Jenna is wanting to talk (vent) with me. So, keep on blogging, I enjoy it. Many praises go out to Jenna. I am so proud of her. AND Braeden. What can I say about Mal, can't wait to play with all of them..
