New year, new resolution!

Hey y'all, Sretna Nova Godina or Happy New Year! I can't even believe that it's now 2011. Are you kidding? It can't be 2011. It seems like yesterday I was in high school trying to retrain my brain to write 1990 and now we've hit 2011 already. Where is the time going and why is it going by so fast?

This year my oldest son Cody turns 19, Joshua will turn 16 and Hannah will be 14, oh yea and lest I forget, like I could, Johnny and I celebrate our 20th anniversary in June. Also we have officially passed our 10 year mark in Croatia. It seems like it was yesterday when we moved over there not sure what to expect. God's sure been good to us. We have seen incredible things happen and have meet some wonderful people. We have a second family in Croatia that means almost as much as out own families.

I can sum up the last year in one little chorus:

Well this is a new year and with new years we tend to make resolutions. This year I am resolving to be a more faithful blogger. I'm ashamed! Broken even! Okay so not really that bad but I really wish I had blogged more in 2010 and I'm gonna do my best to do that in 2011. 

We're gonna be in the states until at least November. We'd like to make it home before the holidays but with our son staying for college I'm not sure if I'll be able to pull myself away before Thanksgiving. We'll see. 

I'm looking forward to catching up with your blogs and seeing what God does in your families in this new year.


  1. Good to "see" you again! Enjoy your furlough and I'm looking forward to more updates. Oh and I agree about the time flying - our kiddos turn 22 this year and 20 and 17...whoa!

  6. Glad to see ya back! Looking forward to hearing about your travels in the U.S. I'll pray for you and leaving Cody behind when ya return to Croatia.

  7. You got it Tori! I am working even more at my Blog Directory and excited about the new life it has had recently! Cleaning up that, and getting to bed by 1am are two of my resolutions. Don;t know if I am going to make it tonight...I have a lot of blogs to go over 100! Hmmm. LOL

  8. Good to hear from you again Tori. that needs to be my goal as well. Thought of you guys the other day when we pull into the driveway in Varazdin. KD saw the van, I wondered if she thought you guys were in it. ): Hope that you have safe travels and good meetings. Visit Wal*mart and Target for me! (:

  9. Tori, you will never believe this but I JUST now discovered there was a 'comments' section on our blog and I had never seen it!! Yikes! I am so embarrassed. So I just had fun reading through 2 years worth of comments...not that many really. But I came across yours and I realized over time I had 'forgotten' about you!! I am SO sorry! I just read your latest blog and I will be praying for you as you travel the furlough trail. Know God will bless you and I trust all your needs are supplied!! I have posted our latest newsletter and more interesting facts about Japanese here and there too. So feel free to check in any time! Safe travels and God bless your new year!
