yet another New Year post and other random stuff...
Here's a pic me and the kids with my mom and dad for Christmas dinner.
I'm not sure where my bro was ... hubby is the super duper photographer.
Have I told you how much I love the new year?
I feel the same way when I get a new book or make a new friend. It's all shiny and new and anything is possible. Because it's a new year I can loose 20 lbs, or make a new great habit or learn a new language or because fabulously rich. ha ha. Of course these things aren't going to happen and if I'm truthful I don't even want them too but it's just the possibility of it all. It's like leaving for a holiday, getting up early and getting into the car. I'm all tingly with the expectation of it all:)
I love it! Obviously I'm one of those cup is half full people so please bare with me!
What brought all this delayed happiness on you ask? Well, I feel like our real 2008 is finally starting. Hubby and I try to go out on New Years Eve and write down our family and personal goals for the year, have some yummy food and some great uninterrupted talk (with 4 kids this is harder to come by they you might think). Since we moved here, nearer to family, my holiday has become less about Kev and I as a couple and more about me focusing on our company and hosting various events. I love it but it leaves very little time for planning and talking. We also don't spend the evening alone anymore. We're adjusting our traditions so....
Today we went out for sushi at lunch and did our pow wow ... and my mom and dad finally left to go home. As much as I love my mom and dad, it's great to be just us again after two weeks of company and events. Here's hoping we can get the kids back into the habit of going to bed and getting up at regular times....okay and myself too!
One of my personal goals this year to to run at least 2 - 10 km races. I've managed in all the craziness to maintain my running schedule so of that I'm very proud.
What are your New Year traditions? Do you set goals?
I hate the whole resolution thing. I was never good at keeping them and find goals much friendlier. I'm sure it's just semantics; please don't burst my bubble!
