book worm

Today was a day that marked a right of passage for any book reader. Miss M signed for her very own library card. She was so excited that she called me herself just to let me know her good news and I was so excited for her my voice elevated enough that my entire office heard me...heehee oops.

Reading is definitely something that we treasure in our home. Both Joe and I came from a family of readers so it's only natural that our onion (still hoping someday to pluralize that *sigh*) shares the love of books as well. Sure she can't read them entirely by herself but she can read "and", "the" and "at". Getting there.

I've got my own book I'm working on right now but it's not nearly as fun to read as these. But when are computer textbooks ever "fun" to read other than inducing sleep? Here's to getting my nerd on!

my one little word for the year

For the past 3 years I have participated with Ali Edwards One Little Word project where you select one word for the year where you strive to live your word. This year my word chose me, actually it more or less drop kicked me. Reclaim. Living my word last year was a challenge. Sometimes I was doing it and other times I was dropping things left and right but wasn't going to let it get to me so I kept getting back up and worked even harder at it.
This year’s word is about picking up those pieces that I’ve dropped and reclaiming myself, who I amwho I want to be and just simply doing it. . My poor blog was one of the things I dropped, along with some if my creative mojo but now that it is a new year and one of my goals for 2012 is to blog more even if no one reads it.  It’s great outlet for documenting my amazy crazy life and with a new situation and everything now is basically balanced I can reclaim what I have lost.
So here’s to a great year with many new adventures on the horizon!
