Happy 2014!

Happy New Year everyone!  It's time to get back to's been awhile!

Most of this is self-explanatory, so I won't bore anyone with details.  As any Spartan fan knows, you really don't expect things to go your way.  This year, though, despite a rough start, Sparty had a great season and even pulled off a win in the Rose Bowl!  Go Green, Go White!!!!

I grew up on a farm and my grandparents had a bakery.  I literally grew up working and am not very good at balancing life and work.  My mom works constantly and I know how I feel about that.   I need to keep reminding myself of how I feel about my mom so that my kids don't feel that way about me.  I want better for them!

This year my entire family took a Disney Cruise for Christmas!  I could literally go on about the cruise for weeks (don't worry, I won't!).  Suffice it to say, it was "magical" (sorry for the cliche!).  Even the oldest among the kids (a seventeen year-old and two sixteen year-olds) had fun!  Disney really does it right.  If you ever get the chance to cruise with Disney, do it!

Here's to a healthy, happy new year!

  3. As a friend, I just have to say that I was always amazed at how you were able to balance school work, grad school up until a few years ago, and your kids who seemed to be involved in EVERYTHING! Don't beat yourself are doing a GREAT job:)

    Now, you just need to spend more time with me and everything will be super great! Love you!
