It's Sunday . . .

which means tomorrow is back to the old routine. The past 2 weeks have been so nice, great holidays, short weeks at work, lazy time at home with the family, but I guess all good things have to come to an end.

I'm still trying hard to come up with my "word" for this year. There are so many options and I just can't seem to settle on just one. Why is it we feel we can conquer the world just because it's January 1st. I've also toyed with the idea of having a word a month, maybe a smaller time frame can truly keep me accountable and on task for that month and what I want to accomplish. I wish I could start every month with the newness and excitement that comes with January 1st. So, I will decide, soon, on either a word for the year or my 12 words for 2009, do you have a word?

Feels great to have Christmas put away, Daryl is climbing the ladder up to the attic as I type, bye bye for now, see you in about 11 months. I decided that I will get an earlier start to decorating this year, if I have everything BUT the tree done by Thanksgiving I think that will really make the month of December easier and give us more time to enjoy the decorations that we work so hard to get out. Daryl even said yesterday that Christmas should be for 3 months to make it worth all work that goes into getting everything ready! AAAHHHHH, it's taken almost 18 years but I think he is finally starting to get it!!!

Meghan was such a big little helper taking the ornaments off the tree, and asking me a million and one questions about EVERYTHING! It is so fun watching the excitement that she has in everything that she does!

Well, need to go make a list and run to the grocery store for a few things to get us through the week! Happy 2009 everyone.

  1. Isn't it funny how the promise of a new year gets us going, organzing and rethinking things in life? For me, my word is LISTEN. Mostly as a reminder to listen to God in all things, the ways he speaks and how he speaks and when he speaks. I'll also be working on listening more to what's happening around me NOW. The kids, Zac, life as it happens. Being present. Oh, and listening to myself. I've found that when I really listen to myself I feel silly when I raise my voice or speak harshly to the kids. (working on that one!)

    You ought to check out the inspired room ( She's got a post on a different focus for each month. It's not a bad idea, a year is a long time but a month seems much more realistic.

    Hope you had a good Sunday and a great week!
