The start of something grand.

Is it? I don't know, it could be. Why not?

Let's just expect this new venture to be a wonderful thing, shall we? I'm going to pray for a great year for the Pipe Lifers ... speak it into being, even. I believe positive (often) begets positive, so that's the route I'm taking.

It is back to ... well, "whatever" today. School, work ... our old familiar roles. I've sent the kids off to school and Steve off to a new job. The house is so quiet the dog and I don't know what to do with ourselves. I'm not sure if I'm ecstatic or lonely. A little bit of both, probably.

Despite the concern over lack of a regular paycheck for a while, it's been so great having Steve here by my side these past few weeks. We really needed that time to recharge. Today he's headed to Pennsylvania for his new job and I'm not sure when I will see him again. Hopefully we'll know much more about what the job entails and what his schedule will be after he meets with a supervisor tomorrow. (And for those keeping track, my brother is going to work for the same company, so they're traveling together today. Fired together, hired together. I'm tellin' ya', they're a force to be reckoned with.)

I'm excited. I have a feeling there are great things in store for us this year, and this is just the beginning.

Now, if I could just fight off this cold that seems to be settling in my head I'd be all set. I've got too much to accomplish to start the year off by getting sick. Germs be gone!


  1. Hmm, great question. As I've thought about the year ahead three things keep popping into my head: consistency, security, and freedom. What does it all mean? I'M NOT SURE! Yet.

    I told Steve the other day I have a great feeling about this new job of his ... that he will either really excel with this company, or it will be a stepping stone to something/somewhere he is happy with, and happy to invest some time in.

    And for me? I could write forever about what I think it means for me. :) But I do see myself focusing more on ME this year ... not just what I feel I'm "supposed" to be doing for my kids, my family, my home, the world, blah blah blah. I'm going to be doing a lot of writing in the days ahead - partly to hash all this out for myself because after a while I feel like I'm talking in circles. :D I'm just excited!
