Happy New Year dear bloggers! I love the feeling of new, fresh, and starting again.
I am NOT one for resolutions of major proportions, but I am one for setting goals, some again and again, and some fresh and sparkly.
I like to start the new year with a clean slate, so to speak, and today one thing to help that along was taking down, packing up and putting away the Christmas decorations. It was a big chore, but with all 5 of us pitching in, we talked about how this holiday was,and how we had a good time. I discarded a few old pieces that we didn’t even put out this year. We then moved furniture, dusted, vacuumed and now my home feels cleaner, larger and back in order.
I’m also starting with a home cooked southern meal, chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, and black eyed peas……….yummmm…………..eating right can start tomorrow!!
A blog a read, Janel at Dandelion Dayz , said she likes to begin each year with a word……… A word to represent the year,something to set the tone for the year, something to aspire to. I really like that idea, and I’m trying to decide what work I’d like for my very own this year. Janel is posting hers on Monday January 4th, so I’m going to shoot for that day too.
What I want most from 2010 is myself back, the person that was happier and calmer and more fun. I’m working on it, and things take time, but I know that admitting you have a problem is step one in getting help.
So new year, new opportunities, and new adventures……………looking forward to sharing them with you!!
An update on my Dad. Yesterday was a good day, cognitively he was better and it was looking like he would be moved to re-hab as early has tomorrow. However today has been frustrating. Dad did not recognize my brother first thing today, he didn’t sleep well, his words were garbled, and then he tries to cover that all up by not talking. They’ve just done another CT scan to check for more bleeds, no news yet. My mom is very scared, as I guess we all are.
