The last week has been busy! So many people to visit and wish Merry Christmas. Celebrate our own traditions. We’re not religious, so for us the reason for the reason is just to continue to spread love and kindness to all we meet. To each their own everybody. I think next year I want to avoid gifts for each other and just focus on gifting those less fortunate than us.
It’s amazing how quickly the time passes the older I get. And time will start moving even faster when we welcome a little into our family someday.
2014 was filled with a lot of love but also the saddest experience we’ve had in awhile. The loss of Sally is something I’m not 100% sure my husband will ever recover from (do you ever recover).
I thought I would have a resolution to share but I’m not 100% committed to just one. I do have things I would like to work on to help make me a better person and grow more. Here are a few and I hope you can help keep me accountable.
1. Continue my fitness journey. I’ve created a great home routine since leaving the gym and I cannot wait to add more equipment.
2. Work on my knitting skills. I’ve started four scarfs and none of them are finished. My mother in law had yarn made for me that can be used to make washcloths. I hope to actually start and finish them.
3. Work on my shopping habit. I’m not committed to the capsule wardrobe but I do want to have better quality clothing. H&M and Forever 21 are great but not for the long run. And since this is something I started this time last year I’ve already discovered I’m more of a basics gal than a trendy gal.
4. Work on saving! I’m a spender and L is the saver. I use to be a great saver but along the way I took a turn for the worse. I’m hoping by getting better at 3 up there saving will naturally follow. I’ve started using cash more often. Keeping all our change in a bin and we saved $130 in a year just with a change….
For now that’s my start to 2015. I’m sure my goals will change and flow and grow as the year progresses but I’m not even down one day yet.
I hope you had a fabulous New Year’s Eve and day. I’m off to finish the rose bowl game with L (go Ducks!). Yes I hate football but I love my home state and supporting our teams.
