100th Post

It's a year to the month that I started this blog - thanks to my sister, Reagan. Things do change over the course of a year. I started this blog when I was 35, I lived in Arizona and had two kids. I was starting to think about how the coast seemed clear to spend an unprecedented THREE Christmases in the same home. Abigail was in a great school, and Benjamin was making steady progress towards potty training and learning to speak at his level. We had a horrible church schedule ahead of us of 1 - 4pm, and we thought about moving to get away from it.

One year later, we are STILL looking at another year of church from 1 -4pm, but now I live in Utah, with three kids. I spent Christmas in Alpine, and have stopped trying to guess where Christmas 2009 will be. New year, new president, new state, new school, new job, and new child to potty train. ;D I am hopelessly addicted to your comments and hover over Matthew after I post; pestering him with questions like, "Was that funny? Did you like it? What part was were you laughing at? Ohhhh, was that too much there? Should I take that out?" Poor guy. He knows before most of you when I have put up a post because he has often been my reluctant editor.

It has been a year, and as per the title, we have been trying to catch the window; stay on top of this madness, and take it as it comes. Sometimes gracefully, much of the time not. SO, to you - my readers - thanks for stopping by, and cheers! Here's to another 100 in the next year. I hope I've kept you entertained enough to not be considered a waste of your time.

That's SO funny because I do the same thing to Brent except I make him read it out loud so I know exactly which parts he thinks are humorous.
Keep on blogging!

I love your blog! I feel like I know what is going on in your life because I'm reading it. Last night Jake asked me a question, and I thought, "I'll bet Katrina knows the answer to that one"... I'll call you when I remember what the question was. :)

2008 was a crazy year for everyone. Here's hoping for a calmer 2009...

After three different afternoon church times last year (1-4, 3-6, 2-5), we are FINALLY at 8:30-11:30.

Congrats - I love your blog! Keep up the good work. And even if I don't comment often, know that I'm reading and enjoying!

As a newer reader (remember me? think Durham), I say, Keep Going! And may 2009 be just as exciting as 2008.

And I like that picture of you. It's super nice.

Holy Crap, 8 comments already?? SOMEONE IS LOVED!!
And I'm so glad I got you blogging. It's a great way to vent/feel like someone out there knows you're still alive/keep the family & friends in the loop.

Keep on bloggin'! (said in the tone of that creepy lady from ballroom dancing, when she kicks her nasty skinny leg up and says, "keep on DANCIN'"!)

Hey Katrina - -I too follow your blog regularly. I really think you should go more public with it. You know, the whole advertising bit and all. People would get a real kick out of your funny thoughts and ideas.

Anyway, congrats on your 100th post. I sure hope you are in Utah for good. It is where you belong as far as I am concerned. It makes it a lot easier for me to drop and enjoy your family.

Keep writing and on to your 1000th post! Cheers.

Congrats on the 100th post! And we've kept our same church time this year too, but it's the other extreme...8 am. It's nice when we get home, but not when we are getting up. And I too have Landon edit my posts! Funny!

Love you doll face!!! Great picture. Wish we could have partied this week and last for our birthdays together.

Did it again...posted as my Aunt Lori. Sorry. I was in her account working on her son's blog about his accident and forgot to log out! Doh. So, it is ME who wanted to party with you, not my Aunt Lori. Though I bet she would enjoy it.
