We had a babysitter for ALL night. Plans for dinner and a movie, and then a fun dance party from 1opm - ??? All the makings of a great NYEve. Then... we ALL got sick. The boys crashed by 9pm. Blake was in and out... but mostly out. So at 12 (the nyquil wasn't going to get the best of me yet) I sat there on the couch, watched the ball drop, promised to never spend another year like this again, then passed out (sniff, sniff). It's been a rough 4 days at the Hart house, but I think I (well, we) are finally on the mend!!! What a way to bring in the New Year. One year (our first in NC) I rung in the New Year with Blake's Dad watching Maid in Manhattan.... I can't complain... Butch was/is great company, but I did have higher hopes for this year... oh well... I'm over it!!
So, on that note, I love a fresh start... Mondays, a new month... a New Year!! There's some sort of motivation to starting over (this will be the year I loose 10lbs, get organized, get on top of my game, start that new class, hit record business highs etc, etc...) So while I hope for all those things, I really just hope I can live in the moment, be a little more patient, not get so overwhelmed and yeah... definitely loose 10lbs :) I did read however (going back to not getting overwhelmed) that if you tackle projects in smaller increments it helps reduce stress, i.e.: I don't have time to clean the entire house but I can get this one room. Seriously... I stress over my house. Which is crazy b/c I'm going to clean it and it's only going to get dirty again and I'm only going to clean it again.... I'm off topic!!!! Anyway, happy new year to ALL and to all a good night. Better get to bed. Resolution #16: Go to bed before midnight.... 11:54 still counts.
