Is it just me?

This is the first year in a few that I am excited to see what happens to us this year.  It can only get better, right?  But on this night before the kids go back to school, and Tim attempts to go back to work, it feels like we are going back into a routine, and it feels so limiting.  I am sure it comes from a bit of fear of how Tim will make out going back after his surgery....and I am sure it comes with a little regret that the lazy mornings with the smell of cooking bacon and coffee mingles with the smell of the Christmas tree in the corner.  Yes, I still have the GD tree standing in the corner.

So while many will be in the same boat tomorrow, trying to get back into a routine and wishing that were just a few more days for break, you can all feel a little better that at least you still don't have to take down your tree, lol.

Am I the only one that goes into a New Year with almost a naive hope that this will be the best year yet?  I am hoping this will be the year that Tim(hubby) becomes pain free, that my kids open my eyes to some new things and show me other things that I have never thought of before, and maybe, just maybe, this is the year that I will make the time for some more writing!  But who knows right?  I think I had similar aspirations last year, but life threw us a few curves this past year, but I have to say we came out a little more worn, but still here, so there is always a positive.

Here's to a new year, new beginnings, hope and all the wishes that we have for a better year!


  1. I've been trying to get into a routine for months now. I can't get it to work. In fact, I still feel like I'm stuck in 2013! I'm trying to make new habits though and push through the new year. Good luck to you!

  2. Ha! I was just thinking how much I was dreading the kids getting back to school. That led me to think about what it will feel the last Christmas before Oldest son leaves for college. It made me realize how much I need to cherish these years! I hope your 2014 is the best one yet!

  3. Thanks Wendy and Krystal. Krystal, we sound we might have a lot in common, stick around, as tomorrow I am posting how much I weigh(once again) as I tackle that issue. Last year started out so great for us, but then once I went off track, I went off badly, and am also still struggling with getting back into a routine, and sticking to my goals!
