We finished school on December 23rd. Though at the time, it felt like a huge struggle to teach that close to Christmas, I am thankful now as we go back to school tomorrow. Having the bulk of the vacation after Christmas allowed me lots of time to rest and relax, as well as to do a few things around the house.
Christmas was great. My best gift was an iPad from my Mom and Dad! I am so spoiled! But the best was giving. I always love giving more than I love getting. I will post about the gifts we gave our Mom and Dad later.
And the best was just spending time with our Mom and Dad and other family (including our second family). We literally did not do a thing other than eat and drink wine and relax, and it was just perfect. Exactly what we needed. I am feeling totally rejuvenated now.
For our New Year's resolution, though, Selby and I made a co-resolution: Be Less Lazy. This resolution means lots of stuff, but for now it's mostly taken the form of us getting our house in order.
Over the last few days, Selby and I have tackled a bunch of jobs that have needed tackling, and it's felt really good. Over the next few days, I'll post about some of them. Oh, and Being Less Lazy also applies to this blog: I hope to post more because my lack of posting is really just about being lazy. I have things to say, so I just need to put in the effort and do it!
Here's the first thing: Make a List!
I just took an extra Ikea frame we had and put a piece of glittery black paper in it. Then I wrote on it with wet erase markers.
Having a list is good because it's right there for you to see what needs to be done. And it sure feels good to cross something off, doesn't it?!
