I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and fun New Years!
We had a great Christmas Break. I was able to be off for almost a week and 1/2 from work. It was a much needed break. We did a lot of traveling but we did get to spend our first Christmas morning at our own home. In the past we have been at my mom's or my in-laws on Christmas Day. But since we had Brayson, we have decided to have Christmas morning at our own home. And it was very nice and relaxing!
I turned the big 4-0 on the 29th! Not as traumatic as turning 30. I have actually looked foward to turning 40. Kinda weird. We went to New Orleans for my birthday without Brayson. It was my first time totally away from him. We missed him but it was a much needed break. We did a lot of walking, ate beignets, seafood, and po-boys from Mothers. Yum! I hope to post some pics later. I broke our camera over the break so we had to buy a new one before we went to NOLA and we have not uploaded the new software on our computer yet.
So it is a New Year and we all have new resolutions. This year I decided to have only one resolution: To spend time with the Lord everyday. This is the most important thing I can do this year.
This falls in inline with my word for 2011. Simplify!
Simplify - to make less complex or complicated; make plainer or easier
I want my life to be less complex or complicated. I want to make it plainer or easier where it is in my power to do so.
So that is where my one resolution fits. No list of things I can't keep up with or can't remember. Just a simple one where if I complete it, the year will be a success no matter what else happens.
Now I do have other goals. Each month I want to have a theme. This month is organization. Each theme will work with my word for 2011. I want to work on organizing my home so we can simply live and not be so suffocated by it. I know I probably won't have everything organized by the end of the month but it is a start. And by having it is a theme for the month, it is not overwhelming. I will get what I can done and move on from there.
So what is your resolution(s), goals, word for the year?
