Like most of you mamas, I slept 4.5 hours Christmas Eve night. I kept myself fortified yesterday with coffee and mocha punch. I also took a 15 minute nap later in the afternoon. We had a delightful Christmas Day---my parents came Thursday night. They spent the night and spent most of yesterday with us. It was such a blessing having them here! My mama and daddy helped me so much in the kitchen preparing our special Christmas dinner. I usually don't have our special meal ready until 4:00 or so, but yesterday since I had so much help, we ate before 2:00!
So I slept late this morning, and I have so much to do (clean-up from the Christmas fun) that I don't really know where to begin! I am also already thinking forward to the new year next week and all the goals I want to set for myself. I love January 1 with its blank slate. I like to make New Year's resolutions and goals for myself. In fact, I have so many areas that I intend to work on and improve that I told Jimmy that he may not even know me any more. :)
I jotted down a few areas that I intend to set goals for myself. I wish I had a day to be alone and just think and write plans, goals, ideas, etc. I would love to read Pinterest for hours to learn new ideas for meeting my goals, but the reality is none of that is going to happen. So, I will work with what time I have. A little bit here and there while cleaning up our December/Christmas Day festivities.
Here are the areas I intend to work on. I hope to blog specific ideas and plans as I make them.
Feel free to share any ideas you may have as well.
- Bible Study
- Healthy Eating
- Planner/Homemaking Binder
- General cleaning out
- Office Items (Bills, Filing, Budget, etc.)
And here are my precious children!
