The Fat Lady Sang

Christmas is over. We ate, laughed, ate some more, opened gifts, played with gifts, ate, slept, watched movies, ate...
See the pattern?
I took down all of the decorations today. A few years ago, I decided not to roll into the new year with the previous year's decorations still up. It works.
Tomorrow, we'll do our annual New Year's Eve party with the boys. They are too excited about staying up all night! We'll cuddle up and watch the ball drop while munching on finger foods.
In just a few days, the boys will be back in school. The house will be quiet and we'll be back in our routine. The first half of the school year is over and we're looking forward to an even better second half.
I'm excited about all the new year has in store for me and my family.

Open Your Mouth

Wow! It's been over a month since my last post. I guess I've been too busy to write. We survived our Thanksgiving feast and enjoyed lots of family time. Now we're preparing for Christmas. All of the decorations are up and most of the gifts are safely hidden.
It's hard to believe a new year is right around the corner. Next year's life theme will be "Open Your Mouth". A few years ago, I decided to stop writing a list of resolutions. Instead I write a theme. Throughout the year, I try very hard to stick to it in some way. Next year's theme is challenging because I am a very private person. My goal is to step outside of my comfort zone and talk. I'll talk about comfortable and uncomfortable subjects; conventional and unconventional ideas. My hope is that it will be beneficial or inspirational. If Kim Kardashian and Brittany Spears have an audience of listeners, we all stand a chance!
