Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

Well, the holidays are over. I just dropped a tearful Charlotte off at daycare. I have spent the last 14 days with her and it has been wonderful. (ok, and a little tiring) Judd was off of work for a good portion of that time as well. We haven't spent that much time with her since she was 3 months old and it was wonderful to be together. Judd asked me the other night, "Do you really think you could be a stay at home mom?" I didn't have to think about it, yes I could in a heartbeat.

We even got a few things accomplished around the house. We finally decided on and ordered our new couch. We hung curtains in the living room yesterday! Our house is starting to look more "grown up" by the day. Yesterday we decided that 2009 was going to be the year of the house. Maybe a kitchen renovation is in the future??

I don't have any big resolutions this year. Of course I would like to get this flab around my midsection to go away, but I'm not going to put that on myself. If it happens, it happens. I would like to learn to be more patient, especially with Charlotte and Judd. I would like to continue to only say "yes" to the things I can handle - not get too overwhelmed. I would like to continue to develop my photography skills...maybe even try to take a client or two eventually? I would like to continue to blog, at least 4 posts a week.

Who knows what else 2009 will bring!

Good luck with your semi-resolutions! They all sound good to me and can't wait to see the developments in the year of the house!

We can share house stories, because this is going to be a year for our house too. I'd love to drop the midsection as well. After Zachary, I had lost all the weight, but never went back to my original size. So when I got pregnant with Liam, I started out a size bigger, and haven't quite gone back yet (I'm in between right now - old size is a smidge snug, size bigger is often baggy). I'm thinking Mario Kart may be taking a back seat to the Wii Fit in the next few months...Good luck - keep us posted!
