Happy New Year!!

Just wanted to wish everyone a VERY Happy New Year! Last night, we had to skip a party with friends because our little ones came down with a pretty bad cold. Today, we are missing my mother’s NYD party which I am bummed about because I always love to see my cousins.

But it is what it is.

I started to play a little XBOX again and bought a few games. The kids get a KICK out of it and I even let them fight when I know the battle is easy. So, believe it or not, we are having a great time indoors. I keep cracking open windows to air out the germs and Bill keeps closing them because he doesn’t believe it will help. You have to see the two of us – we’re like a comedy team.


Last week, despite Christmas Eve and Christmas I actually ended up losing a half a pound which isn’t a lot but I went in thinking I was going to GAIN. So, when I heard that I actually lost (even a little) it blew my mind. Felt pretty good about that.

Today, I am on a mission to finally clean my house and get it in some kind of order. We’ve been living in this toy limbo for at least a week. There’s something in every room and it makes me cr-azy. So, today will be the day I put an end to that. The holidays are officially over. It’s back to the grind.

Do you have any New Year’s resolutions? A lot of people are big at making promises to themselves today. Was curious to hear if you had any.

Maybe visiting Egypt this summer will be mine. 🙂
