First day of the new year. Feels the same ... and yet ...
Feeling grateful. I feel thank you's are due all around, but especially to my darling husband (really earns the DH designation!) who has stepped up and cared for us all, even while working extra hard himself. He's been trying to cover everything I normally do around here that has become too hard to reach, and still showering me with love on top of it all.
The Peanut and The Pumpkin have also stepped up and taken on more responsibility, and being generally more helpful around the house. They're growing up despite regular protestations, and I like what they're becoming.
Friends have been indispensable, especially these last few weeks. I made it through to the end of 2011, and begin 2012, with a little help from my friends.
And now, tonight, I am also grateful that the NBA/owners tiff has been worked out in time for some semblance of a season. This girl needs her Bulls to get through the long, cold winter ahead! ;)
Here's to a healthy, productive 2012!
