Cruising into 2010


I am celebrating the new year by staying home with my kids. We will stay up and watch the ball drop in Times Square, then go straight to bed like the party animals we are. This is a picture of me driving home from work. I think I look happy here, and I certainly am happy now. I am in charge of my own destiny and no longer depend on a husband to deal with problems. I am finding this an empowering experience. I am dealing with problems and not letting them stress me out. I am saving money for my kids' cars so that I will be ready when they turn 16. I am paying off bills and improving my credit. I am refinancing my house and getting a lower interest rate and lower monthly payments. Things are great, and I am planning on 2010 being even better. I hope it will be a great one for you too!

So good to have you blogging again, Julie. I have my hen and chicks covered and hope that it survives this cold spell in Central Florida. I think of you each time I see it. Your post makes me think of "I am woman hear me roar", and with or without a DH, I think it is a good song for women. We need to feel good about ourselves and our abilities. I hope that 2010 is a great year for all of us.
