Fresh start

What is it about the feeling of a fresh start?  I just think that a new year is like endless possibilities.  It's like a Monday, but way better for starting new.   It's like a free pass to be brave.
Nope, can't do it today, have to wait til the new year.
It's so funny, but true.  It gives us a pass to wait and keep slacking or just doing the same old thing...until the new year!   Bring it on.  It's the new year.  I've all of the sudden figured things out!

What are you going to do differently this year?  Maybe I'll learn how to keep my house clean.  Or maybe I'll stick to planning a menu for the week.  I think mine are all called being an adult.  Not sure I'm ready yet.  Maybe I'll figure out how to drink 760 oz of water.  Or maybe I'll stop smiling when I vacuum up a lego or barbie shoe.

 I don't like to commit to resolutions.  I like to test the waters of different things.  Thinks I keep trying to do, but just do kinda halfish.  Maybe I'll make a cleaning schedule.  Or I could just dig up the one from last year.   I'm not going to be hard on myself.  There are bigger fish to fry in this world.  (Fish, I'll add that to the "menu").  Cereal is a meal you know.

I think to-do lists are good for me.  They are kind of like a daily resolution.  Sometimes a resolution that is still there the next day.  Just with a different day of the week at the top of the list.
My favorite thing to do is think of something that I've done, like drink my coffee, then add it to my to-do list, and be able to cross it off.  Bam.  Take that to-do list.  You know you do it.  Right?

So, what we've learned is that I need to grow up, figure myself out, focus, stick to one task, take care of my family, run a small business, get rid of negativity around me, treasure the good stuff, etc.  The list goes on and on.  I hope that you will enjoy my little attempt to blogging this year.  More consistantly.  I try it often.  I wonder if people are out there reading it?  I know a couple are.  So, if you are one of those couple, thanks!  Because this might be a complete and utter hot mess.

But we can add that to our to-do lists!  Utter hot mess blog, check! ;)
