I know! Can you even believe it? The FOURTH day into the new year and I have not blogged yet?? What the H? The truth is, I have been busy busy. And sick. I've had a terrible cold since Christmas day. And I am still trying to catch up on the mess that the holidays left behind. There are decorations everywhere. Gifts we received have still not been put away. And the kids' rooms. Oh. Dear. Lord. Let's just say if CPS came knocking, my babies would be in foster care. Come to think of it, I haven't seen the little one in a while.....
Anyhoots, how were your holidays? Yeah? Good? Did you make any resolutions for the new year? I am still deciding on mine. There are the usuals: lose weight, get organized, be more patient with the kids, develop a British accent. You know, the same stuff every year. This year I really want to finish the things I start. I love that sense of accomplishment, that feeling of pride when you do what you say you will. I want to follow through.
I'm a little nervous about what this year will bring. Last year was not the worst year, but there were some moments I could have done without. I've talked to a lot of people who have said last year was the best of their lives. I would love to have a year like that. But I am definitely thankful for the year I had, it could have been so much worse. God has blessed me and my family. We are lucky.
One of the best things I did last year was start this blog. I have met so many amazing people and made actual friendships I never would have had without this. I am thankful for all the people who stop by and take up their precious time reading my word vomit when I am sure they have so many more important things to do. I appreciate you, and I appreciate this space I have created to sort out my thoughts, complain about what bugs me and celebrate the millions of happy moments I am blessed with in life. This is a good thing. And I am looking forward to sharing the uncertainty of a new year with all of you.
Happy New Year!!
