Happy New Year!

WOW!! 2010... What could this new year bring.

Last year brought Molly. I never thought I would get to have three kids. I never would have if I didn't donate my kidney to my dads brother. I would not have donated my kidney if my dad had never passed away from Cancer and left us to miss him everyday. Hopefully this year it won't hurt so much. Because dad died I got to reconnect with his brother who we then found out needed a kidney. Even more amazing is that Molly's due date was Feb., 24th 2009. Exactly 2 years to the day that my dad died. I know, crazy. I think that is part of the reason why I feel so lucky to have her. She is truly a gift.
I know, I know my other two are also fantastic gift. But I really feel like my dad was sending us her to help us deal with him being gone.

I have my first follower!! Its my sister but it still felt really cool seeing a 1 instead of a 0. Congrats Ann Marie on being my first! :-) Come on Sam you know you want to too! Maybe 2010 will bringing me some followers. I got lost in a web of blogs tonight. I just kept following links to different blogs until I finally had to to say enough is enough. For now. A few really cool things I learned from other blogs tonight:

From the blog the Middlest sister she made pillows out of her brother in law shirts who had passed away. I thought this was an amazing idea for those thing you can not part from but don't want to just keep them in a closet.

From The blog Two Shades of Pink she taught me that you can clean your microwave by putting water in a microwave safe bowl and putting it into you microwave for about 4-6 minutes. And wha-la clean microwave!! Magic! Everything is softened up and all I have to do is wipe it clean.

Thank you ladies! Theses are two things that have greatly improved my life! Hopefully I am not doing anything illegal repeating theses ideas. Sorry if I have.

There are so many fantastic ideas out there!! My goal this year is to find a new one everyday! 365 ideas? How Julie & Julia of me. Just not as cool and knowing me it will last about two weeks. Does the above ideas count as two or 0 since it is still 2009?

The fire works have started and are in full swing out side. Please my sweet kiddos sleep through all of the craziness. I have already had someone stop by to let me know my garage door was open. Every night when Doug leaves for work the kiddos like to wave him off as he turns on his lights from his police car. Then we close the door and we go on our way running around with our head cut off leaving the garage door open, again. Thankfully we have great neighbors. This particular neighbor was driving his 4 year old around (it was 10ish) because he couldn't sleep through all of the fireworks and wanted to go see them. What a good dad.
I am again with out my love on New Years Eve. Hopefully one year he won't work nights and we can try to stay up to midnight, together.

In just one short hour is a new year and a new day. Thank God I need a do over.
