Hello 2014.

nyearPleased to meet you. I can not wait to get back to the gym and that is real. One place I know I won’t be returning to any time soon would be the red dot. It’s not so much that there was a breach, but every day there is a new story or angle or something. I do not like that, so I won’t be shopping there. I’m looking forward to more kid stuff and getting the opportunity to see some of my Louisiana people, and I found some interesting books to read and craft techniques so who knows where those things can lead. Good places I hope.

Happy New Year!

2012 for me began the same way that 2011 ended – with family. All of the kids stayed up until midnight last night, which made for an interesting time getting the youngest ones to bed. I usually don’t make an exception for their bedtime on the weekend, and now I see the wisdom of that choice. We all wore hats and had horns and noisemakers to welcome the year with style. The sun greeted me this morning on my way to church.

5, 4, 3, 2, 1!!!!

I am not a big resolution maker, but I have a couple of irons in the fire for the new year and I’m pretty excited about them. I hope all of you have (or had – if you get around to reading this on the other side of things) a joyous and blessed 2011.
