Something's Missing

Well it's official, I AM OLD.  Well 33 to be exact but at this point I don't really want to bother with counting.  I miss being excited about birthdays, turning a year older, celebrating with everyone.  And though I did have a great time celebrating with the fam bam on Saturday night, I more or less think of it as just a great night out rather than a birthday celebration.  It's wierd this getting older thing.  It comes with a ton of wonderful memories and a sense of peace with who I am at this point in my life, but it's also sort of sad.  This is the first year that I did not have a grandmother to call me on my birthday.  And though it was never that big a deal in the past, it was this huge hole in my day this year.  I missed the chat about being another year older and not spending my $40 check all in one place... It really is the little things.  I want to say that no one warns you about that, but we all know that is not true.  It's people say, yet you don't truly understand the meaning till it affects you personally.  I can honestly say this was the second birthday in a row that did not feel as celebratory as it has in the past.  But I am hopeful for next year... Really that is the only way to think about it.

So here's to another year... May it treat me well!

Wow it's been a long time since I sat down on my laptop, and even longer since I actually blogged.  Part of the problem, is that I usually do all my nonsense online stuff on my iPhone or my iPad now.  And it makes it sort of hard to blog from that silly keyboard.  But since I needed to get on this thing for work stuff, I figured I would update the world on our life.

Olivia is going to be 8 months old tomorrow.  Where does the time go?  I still can't believe that she is crawling and pulling up on things and more or less standing with help.  She sleeps through the night now and when she does wake up in the middle of the night, it is such a rare occurrence that I feel sort of annoyed.  How sad is that?!?  Working on my patience is an ongoing process.  At day care Olivia has now moved out of the swing for naps and into the pack and play.  Such a big girl.  She is eating veggies and fruits and loves it all.  She really is such a good baby, we did well.

Paul is doing well.  Work is crazy, but he is slated to get a promotion to VP in June/July, so we are really excited about that.

Work for me is nuts.  In the span of a month three of my closest coworkers have left, the latest only resigning on Friday.  It's been a roller coaster of a ride, but so far I am hanging on.  Not sure how this will all work out, but I guess I am going to just enjoy the ride.

But the best thing that has happened in the last month, we bought a house!  It's in Chino and it has 4 bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.  It is 2700 square feet and has a really good feel throughout. It is still being built and we have a projected close date of May 24th.  I cannot wait!!!!  This will be our home, our first one at that!

So yeah that is what is going on with us... Pictures to follow!
