And, it WILL be a Happy New Year! I insist.
I started thinking about my resolutions/goals for the new year and I realized that I stopped making lists sometime this past year. I'm truly a list maker and I find that I really accomplish things when I write them down, but when I don't I'm at sixes and sevens all day -- going from one thing to another and never getting anything done or always having that feeling that I should have done something and I don't remember what it was! So, yesterday I made a short list of things I needed to get done:
I don't have humidifiers on my furnaces, so have room/house ones that need to be refilled constantly -- and yesterday I blew that job off! I did, however fill them after church today, so I can still cross that off the list. I did take down Christmas yesterday -- but I didn't put up a lot of Christmas, so here's the stuff I took down:
That'll be another resolution on the list -- sort all the bins and put them away -- a little at a time. I'm not going to make myself crazy this year trying to do everything and accomplishing nothing.
This new year - 2012 - is going to be a good one because I'm going to give myself permission to take the time to smell the flowers. I want to spend more quality time with my grandkids and if the house gets dirty, it'll keep til I get around to it!
Good friends, Squire and Cindy took me out for dinner last night -- lovely meal, good glass of wine and great friends. And, we were home by 7 pm! My kind of New Year's Eve celebration!
My church family -- a great bunch of people that really care about me, as I do them.
