This is a blog challenge by my friend Kelly. I always look forward to February for a couple reasons.
First, Bridget's birthday is this month and we have always had a big party for her. I don't really plan on it being a big party, but by the time all the family is invited, it turns out to be a lot of people. She is turning six this year. First grade next Fall. It is exciting and frightening at the same time. My time for sheltering her is over. I kept her at the Montessori school for Kindergarten because I love their program and also because I just didn't want to sent her off to elementary yet.
Second, I just hate January. It is cold, this year even worse than others. We are coming off the Christmas high and have to wait another whole year for that again. Eck! Just a boring, cold month! February brings us closer to Spring!
This year we have something really exciting and new to look forward to. We are moving! The time has come and I am ready! We don't have it final where we are going, but we are going. There are a couple driving factors for this move. One, we are financially able to, YEAH! Two, we live in the boundaries of an elementary school that I will not send Bridget to. So we either move, or I am going to have to find a "valid district reason" for transferring her. I'm so excited about this. I am tired of living here and wasting our money on this house. The noise from the highway is just horrible. We went from living in an ultra quiet little city (not that I liked it there, but it was quiet) to having a major highway practically in our back yard. It was not well thought out and we have regretted it daily since. Monday we are going to make some serious, grown-up decisions!
Next week I am going to start major purging of our stuff--okay, mostly my stuff, but it's out of here. Craig's list is will become a good friend. I'm going to start packing, so I'm on the look out for good boxes.
