January 2014

Well, hey there.  How's your 2014 going thus far?

Lemme just brush the cobwebs off this old blog here and dive in...

Christmas happened in a flash.  A lot of  Too much money was spent.  A lot of Too much food was bought and consumed.  Too much, too much, too much.  *sigh*  Isn't that how it always seems to go?

But look, here's a family pic!


However, this is actually a more accurate representation:

 
Post-Christmas letdown is hard.  It's even harder when your first two days of Back to School, Kids! turns into TWO MORE SNOW DAYS.  I honestly lost track of the days of the week.  Wait, did I shower today?  Have I even brushed my teeth?  If I have to yell one more time, I'm going to lose my mind!

Fun times.

And now here we are, in January 2014.  A shiny new year.  A time for new beginnings.  A time for new habits, a new leaf to be turned over, a new page in the book of life.

(Blech.)

HOWEVER, I'm buying in.  Jumping on the bandwagon.  Questing for self-improvement in 2014.

My 2014 Word for the Year?

MINDFUL

Oftentimes, I act without thinking.  I say things without thinking.  I eat without thinking.

In all that I do, I want to try to be more mindful.  In my interactions with others.  Especially my Hubby and children. With my eating.  With my exercise.  With what I choose to do with my time.

 
Let's do this!

(Wait, what's your 2014 Word?)
