Wow. Nothing here since July 21st. I'm a bad blogger. But, since is the New Year, why not throw my blog post in with the rest of the bad bloggers who resolve to 'journal more' this year.
I have no resolutions this year. Quite frankly it didn't occur to me to make any because things have been so frantic around here recently. There were a whirlwind of changes in a short period of time and boom...Christmas has passed and now we're into a New Year. (Don't even ask about Thanksgiving....I don't remember it).
The biggest change: my 16 year-old step-daughter moved in with us permanently on December 21st. That brings our census in this house to 6: 2 early 40s adults, 1 teen daughter, 1 2 year-old daughter, and 2 old dogs. (My dogs should write a blog. I bet they could tell some good stories).
So how in the midst of this do I make resolutions? Lose weight? Be more organized? Write a blog entry every day?
Listen, I'm just trying to figure out how to keep everyone fed and in clean clothes.
For now, my resolutions are basic: to be open to new things, to not sweat the small stuff, to spend my time in meaningful ways, and to never let a day go by that my husband and my kids don't know how much I love them and they are my world.
