Happy New Year!

2009

Gotta remember to start writing 2009. That's always my biggest challenge. Of course, I don't write too many checks to have to worry about it much, but that just makes it harder to develop the habit.

I've been reading everyone else's posts where they're looking back at the last year and making resolutions for the new year. I've briefly thought about doing the same thing, but I just can't get motivated. Last year is over. It was a good year, nothing real exciting. We moved to a new home in a different part of town. Mr. at Home started working "at Home". Most of the rest was just normal, living life kind of stuff.

I have no resolutions for next year. Not that there's nothing I need to do to better myself or do better for my family. It just seems that making something an official "resolution" dooms it to failure. I want to find something that's just for me on a more regular basis that just the once a month MOPS. I want to eat better and exercise more. I want to keep my house cleaner and make it more of a calm sanctuary. I want to make it easier to find activities to do around the house rather than just sitting in front of the TV or computer.

We've gotten a good start on the year, actually. I got of bed early and the girls and I hung out. This afternoon we cleaned out the garage, well, Mr. at Home and the girls did most of the cleaning work; I just came in at the end and helped organize things back into the clean garage. We then started a fire in the fire pit and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows before it just got too cold. It was a low-key, fabulous day.

Now to just keep it up!
