and do a tribute to 2008

I started the year with dreams of the baby growing in me. I dreamed of a sweet blue-eyed girl with raven hair. Alas, I did not get my girl, but nothing pales the love I have for my son. Though I did luck out and got the blue eyes and raven hair :wink:. At exactly the middle of year, our little family grew one more. Brayden is everything I could have asked for in a baby, and DH and I love laughing and playing with him more and more everyday! Who knew being a mom would be so rewarding?!?

As for my weight goal, I still have quite a ways to go, and I have fallen off the wagon twice so far for the holidays. I am darn proud of my 20lb loss, and hope to lose more in the days to come. DH is doing great with his 15lb loss as well!

I have lost touch with my best friends over this year, but I saw that coming. I am not into talking guys and going out anymore. I did, however, gain some of the greatest online friends a gal could ask for!!

I see this coming up year as one of new memories, new obstacles, and beautiful adventure of the unknown.




Every wife has it. It is absolutely incurable, but maintainable. It is Annoying Husband Syndrome. I acquired this illness the second I sounded the words "I do." Don't get me wrong, I love my husband. It is the times like today, in which we were stuck in traffic for one hour, that it flares up and threatens to overtake my sanity. Caleb is the type that cannot sit still. He must be moving or performing a task at all times, so in situations like traffic he goes berserk.

After arriving at the in-laws he asked what me problem was, and I confessed of my illness. He didn't think it was funny, but I caught my MIL's eye and at that moment I realized that she too had been living with AHS for quite some time.

I would first like to introduce myself to the blogging world.

My name is Deidre, and I created this blog in an effort to release my thoughts to the world and to allow myself a place to be free. My DH (Caleb) is uber supportive of all my most recent endeavors no matter how crazy they are and tries to accept me as I am even if it is tough at times. We are parents to a beautiful baby boy (Brayden) who lights up my world with every new thing he is learning. I must say that motherhood is not as easy as I thought it would be, and raising a 4month old is becoming more and more interesting to say the least.

I am eclectic and tend to overexaggerate. Though I try not to be, I am habitually late and have an awful sense of time. I am a Virgo, which explains alot. The word Spunky pretty much sums up my character.

I forsee this blog being very theraputic, and I hope those that read it will enjoy it.
