A new year

I'm not 40 anymore.  I'm 41.  I didn't accomplish any of the things I wanted to this past year, but I did make it through.  It was a tough year in so many ways.  I'm glad it's over.  On to bigger & better things!!

Plans for the year?  I don't have many.  I want to reconnect with old friends.  I want to work on being healthy & fit and and for my family to be healthy & fit.  I want to go to a spa trip with girlfriends.  I want to be a more positive person even when life throws challenges at me.  I want to connect better with my husband, make our relationship even better.  I want to step out of my comfort zone more, when I have good things have happened!  I want to remember that I am capable of more than I think I am!

Livvi, Jax & I are having a stay home day today.  We all have coughs and I can barely talk.  I could've pushed through, but I don't want to.  I'm taking today to do laundry, clean, grocery shop & maybe do some Christmas shopping.  All the things I have no time to do.  

I keep toying with the idea of quitting my job. There are things I really, really like about it.  Like, making money, the people I work with, the kids I work with, being with Jaxie during the day.  And of course things I don't like about it, the time it consumes, the fact that I have no time to do anything, being sick all the time and  getting up early!  It's not as if we would miss the money I make cause I don't make that much!  I think I need to go to part time in the new year.  I need to be able to do activities with the kids after school and work out myself!  I need to be able to keep up with all the housework too!

Speaking of which, I'd better not waste the day & get off my new laptop & get moving!
