Its glow warmed me once again while lounging on my couch in front of the TV, sipping hot chocolate accented with a candy cane. With the family sleep, I was glad to have the day behind me. My boy, James Charles, had a rough, tantrum-filled day. His sister Audrey seemed to be (I can only guess at this point) irritated by teething. They got sleepy in the nick of time, when I thought I couldn't take it anymore. My husband must have felt the same way; he crashed as soon as our kids' bedtime routine was over. So finally, having a moment to breathe, I decided to relax and think about the year ahead.
I'm not huge on New Year's resolutions anymore, because I'm frequently coming up with goals to improve my life. But there are definitely some things that I need to tackle now to make life easier and more fulfilling. At the top of my looooooong list is:
- Becoming more organized
- Asking for and getting help with the kids when I need it
- Continuing my quest to improve eating and exercise habits (so it can lead to more weight loss yay)
- And most importantly, STOP PROCRASTINATING!
For the next few days I'll outline how I plan to accomplish these goals. I'd also like to hear from you about your hopes for this year. Let's cheer each other on! In the meantime, I'm getting a head-start on one of my goals. I just caught myself on the verge of procrastinating. That Christmas tree and the decorations really need to be put away.
