EK will be one on Tuesday. Bud and Jake are now 7 weeks old, and we have had them for 3 weeks. My babies are growing up entirely too fast. I have been keeping myself very busy the last week or so, between party planning for the big first birthday, to being on call, and also being an interim marketer for my little home health office.
Also, I've had to work on making my New Year's resolutions. Of course, I'm going to pay off my child's birth and tubes. That seems never ending. And then there's eating out less. I haven't done so well with that so far, but I have plenty of groceries now, and I really need to get back in shape. So, less eating out.
I've been reading a book called "The Happiness Project" by Gretchen Rubin, which talks about a year long project at getting and staying happy. She has the most truthful "12 Commandments for Adults" that I just love. My favorite is "Be nice.... to everyone." I like to think I am a really nice person, and I want everyone to be happy.... so I'm having fun with this happiness project.
The January goal is to get more energy. Apparently I put a lot of energy into worrying about clutter. So far, I've cleaned out my closet, car, bathroom drawers, and EK's drawers to clear my physical clutter! My mental clutter ends up on a to do list. I keep one by my bed, and if I can't sleep for worrying about something, then onto the paper it goes. Also, I've tried to go to bed earlier, rather than rot away in front of Facebook and Pinterest. Oh, and I can't forget to thank my new friend, coffee, for my energy burst each morning. What did I ever do before my Keurig?
While I know that no year will ever top 2011, I'm excited to see where our little life takes us.
