Happy New Year

We are a few days into 2013 and so far so good. I've gotten to spend this time with Josh, James my parents and in laws, all of whom I hope to spend a lot of time with the rest of the year. I also hope to spend time with miss Molly, who is taking an early retirement to Florida and living with my parents as we put our place in Virginia on the market. We aren't even home yet and I miss her.

After some take out Chinese, we were waiting for the ball to drop when James woke up at 11:56. I spent the magical moment of the clock striking 12 nursing him, which can honestly summarize how I spent most of 2012. So although anti-climatic, it seemed fitting.

As we are on the last leg of our trip home, I can't help to think how I need a break after our 'vacation'. Being away from the normalcy of home and our schedule has lead to sleepless days and nights for both me and my little mr. I haven't gotten a full nights sleep in 2+ weeks and its wearing in me. I did sneak a few naps in towards the end of the trip and in the car which is good.

I wasn't able to easily access 'normal' coffee while away either, so I'm looking forward to returning to my donut shop k cups tomorrow.

It seems more popular this year to not make resolutions than to make them. Since I don't think I've achieved any I've ever set out for myself, this seems just about right. Some of my friends wrote eloquent posts on just being them selfs, wanting calm and less 'stuff' clouding their lives. That all sounds good to me!

Simple, calm and time to enjoy our family sounds like what I'm looking for, too. Now with all the clutter that is filling our car, our calendar and my head I have to sit back and think - I'm not really doing anything to make that happen. So even though I'm going to join the popular crowd and not make any resolutions this year, I do want to take a little more time to really think about and plan how I want to spend my life.

Wishing you and yours the very best in 2013!
