Thank you for all the wonderful comments and support on both sites yesterday (crap, I now have two sites).
This is the first time in my life I've ever felt scared of starting a new year, the first time I've ever felt the newness of a new calendar year.
I'm not much for resolutions, mainly because I'm a lazy ass and a fantabulous failure. Resolutions and I just don't seem to get along.
But this year I'm working on a new attitude, enjoying the process. I wrote about it last week and yesterday, but apparently I need to continue to drill it into my head. Enjoy the process, it is okay and everything is fine.
Just call me Stuart Smalley, I'm becoming full of daily affirmations.
I have a whole fabulous list of things today. Basic stuff like laundry, dishes and plan dinner (Beef Hash with Super Mashed Potatoes, I think it may be the next dish on my recipe site; expect about one recipe a week), and a few odd jobs like dust the boys' bedroom ceiling (old houses are fun), take lights off tree and take tree down. I also have my Motivated Moms planner to help me keep on top of the housework (I had it last year and it did help, even though I didn't follow it religiously; I'm working on following it better this year).
But all that is going to have to wait, we have a playdate this afternoon. (See? Enjoying the process.)
In the meantime...
Anyone have some good art project suggestions for all those wrapping paper rolls that would discourage the boys from beating each other with them? Anyone?
