Happy New Year!

Did you have big plans to celebrate ringing in the New Year? I NEVER make plans for New Years Eve because I NEVER make it til midnight~lol! Hubby and I stayed home and watched movies and I fell asleep on the couch. Exciting, huh? It may not sound too exciting, but we are both happy to stay home for a quiet night. All my youngin's were at other people's houses until well after midnight. My boys and a friend of theirs have not even been to bed~AT ALL!! Boy, to be young again! I'm getting ready to start some chocolate chip pancakes for them:)

Hubby goes back to work on Monday which means the Holidays will officially be over. I still have my tree up because I got it up kind of late. It's too much work to put it up and then take it right back down. I'll probably do that sometime this week. I have mixed emotions about getting back to 'normal' routine. It has been so nice to be on 'holiday' for the last two weeks with my family. Now, it's time for my daughter to get back to work on homeschooling and for life to resume as usual.

Resolutions? I don't have any! I have learned something about myself. I do MUCH better setting small daily goals than I do trying to set goals for an entire year. I wouldn't remember half of them anyway:) I used to be so schedule oriented and wanted everything planned out just right. Well, life doesn't happen that way and it would always just stress me out! I used to spend HOURS planning the school year and daily schedule only to find within the first two weeks of the homeschool year, that my 'perfect' schedule wasn't so perfect. I do still like to be fairly organized, but I have learned to give myself LOTS of grace! There are just too many variables in life for things to go how I want them to go~especially raising three teens!

Okay, off to make pancakes!

Do you set New Years Resolutions? I pray this year is FULL of blessings for each and every one of you!!


  1. Not really any new years resolutions. But I do hope to make a list of things I'd like to do (more like fun adventure or date idea type stuff). Haven't gotten around to it yet! Too busy working on the new blog! Yeah, I'm not really ready for "real life" yet. Who ever it? I AM looking forward to yoga starting back up soon though :-) Hope your day is a good one!

  2. Hi Kimberly...Happy New Year.
    I love your take on resolutions.
    I LOVE to make them and see how I do along the year.

    A year for me is a great marker of change. After living life with new changes for all the seasons.

    Here's to 2011 being awesome!
