Holy Crappers! It sure has been a long time since I have been a bloggin'. Funny how that happens. We all go through spurts. Blogging has always been an outlet for me to to connect with friends, share fun stuff in my life and channel being a mom into something "adult". You know, you can only win at Candy land so many times before you go a little loony and start eating the candy land pieces. Writing a post and getting feedback from other adults is fabulous and makes me feel like a big grown up.
So, here we are on the first day of 2013. Also known as my 34th Birthday. Yes, friends I am old. Yes folks, I am cool with that. I have a great husband and great kids and a pretty darn swell life. Sure, we have our ups and downs. But, overall my life is going pretty darn good. And 2013 is only going to get better. WE have the power to control our life. Even when bad things happen and are out of our control, we have the power to decide how to cope and make it our own. Always keep that in mind through life.
I am not setting resolutions this year. But I am setting a goal. And this goal is to remember to be an adult. We always hear how we should be "more childlike" and have fun with life and live in the moment and yada yada yada. Well, I have that part down. I love thinking like a kid and doing things for and with my kids on their level. I love capturing the fun of the day with them. BUT, this year I plan to add in some fun for me. I need to remember to let my kids go play on their own and then take half an hour to enjoy a book for ME, to write a blog post for ME, to send my kids to a sitter and spend a few hours a lone with my husband. This part of life is just as important and seeing butterflies and making sure my kids laugh as smile as we chase them.
And that is it. One overall goal that can interject itself into all aspects of my world. I am going to take adult time this year. For real. And love every second of it.
