Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! :)
I hope this message finds you well, and that you had an enjoyable holiday :).

This is going to be quite rambly! Sorry about that! ;)

I will be celebrating the holidays a bit longer, as taking my trees and decorations down makes me sad. I don't even want to think about it...so they're all staying up for the time being.

So, I'm sort of doing resolutions this year?

We started cleaning and organizing our house the day after Christmas, getting some new shelving put in in the laundry room, putting pictures and other shelves up around the house, and organizing the wrapping paper/laundry drying room with more shelves again. :)  The house looks MUCH better and more organized. LOVE.

I got a cool, small notebook for Christmas in my stocking...I'm going to make notes daily (I hope) to remind me of things I need/want to do, and maybe ideas for other things, as well!

I want to be a better, kinder person.

I want to not care so much about things that truly don't matter (even if others think they are important at the time...not REAL important things!), and let things roll off my back.

I want to not take things so personally.

I want to focus more on my family and myself, spending more time with the people I care about, and spending more time on things that are important to me.

I want to get back into shape! :)  I kind of fell off the wagon the week of the show (which always happens), and with all the Christmas goodies? I've gained a few pounds. We've been pretty good at continuing out work outs over break, so we'll just have to step up our game a bit :).  I'm not too worried!

Tonight was "Melt Night," or making sandwiches like you'd find at the Melt in Cleveland, OH.

I've had so much fun just hanging out with family and friends and my kitties over break...I have the post-holiday blues!
I'm going to just celebrate a bit longer (as previously mentioned), but also listen to Christmas music and watch Christmas movies as long as I want :).  It's one of the perks of being a grown up! ;)

Well, if you are headed back to work tomorrow, as I am, best of luck to you in the new year!
May you all have a happy and healthy 2013!
