Chuck has been on vacation since the 23rd of December. The boys I watch have been home with their Daddy so it has just been the three of us. After a couple of months of feeling completely overwhelmed it has been nice to have some down time. We agreed to make no set plans and to let life just flow. Oh, how nice it has been!
We were able to take time to set some goals for the new year.
There are three categories on our list: financial, home and personal. The plan is to come together every three months and evaluate these goals and see if they need to be tweaked.
I have already started on one of the goals for home. To purge and put every nook and cranny in order. I still have many things to do but I am feeling so much better already. I love it when things are neat and orderly. I think that once I am done I will start all over and go through and purge again. Especially in the office/craft/catch all room and Megan's room.
Stuff is just that stuff. If it isn't bringing you pleasure and being useful there isn't a reason to keep it.
Being the wild and crazy people we aren't we brought in the New Year sound asleep. Just the way I like it! We did celebrate early.
I picked up some hats and noisemakers.
Games were played.
Then we toasted to the New Year.
Megan then went to bed, Chuck watched a movie and I read a book. See, I told you we were wild and crazy! :)
I am looking forward to the time of year when we settle in and slow down for the winter. Just what I need at the moment. 2012 will bring some changes to our home. I am looking forward to the challenges and blessings these changes will bring. As time goes one I will be sharing about this. Happy New Year! May it bring you blessings of love, kindness and happiness!
