Happy New Year!!!

After a 10 day vacation from my desk job I am happy to be back into the swing of things… ie: a schedule!   I don’t flourish well when I’m left to flounder about for more than a few days.  But man, it was nice!!

We had a wonderful holiday vacation and indulged ourselves in family, fun and festivities.

It’s January 3rd and we have already celebrated our oldest child turning 18.   I just can’t believe it.   If you follow my Instagram you will see a picture of him in his JROTC uniform.  He looks so grown up…. so mature, so ready for his adult life to begin. I am SO PROUD OF HIM!!!

This year two of our kids will graduate from high school and two are turning 16.  Life just keeps going…. no matter what!

And now it’s back to our previously scheduled programing…. life, the 9-5, the rat race.
How about this year let’s try to do more than just do more?
Let’s try to do more meaningful, quality vs quantity, whole hearted 100% genuine selflessness.
Create joy in your life by creating joy in someone else’s.

Keep it simple, sister

imageIt is so easy to get overwhelmed.

Daily distractions can derail your goals in a heartbeat.

Two days later you realize instead of taking steps toward your goal you’ve taken steps backwards.

Writing things down has been my “go-to” goal planning system.

Do I always follow it?  Heck no, I’m a human.  I make mistakes.  I get distracted by the pretty things that flutter into my head.  Just take a look at the 5 -10 window tabs I have open at any given time.  haha, Seriously.  It is ADD at its’ worst.

Anyone that knows me knows I love a good list.  I make lists for the grocery store, vacations, yard work, daily to-do, kids homework, housework, bills… it’s’ kinda weird. But it helps me get things done!

True story: I was pregnant with my second son and working full time.  I had a list of things that needed to be completed by a certain deadline, knowing his due date was fastly approaching.  The day I crossed off the final time-sensitive project, guess what happened….. I went into labor the night!!  Within 5 hours he was swaddled and the grandparents were cooing over him.  I truly believe crossing that final task off my list gave me the satisfaction I had completed my responsibilities to my position and I could move on the my next priority – my son.

In an effort to share useful information along with my randomness here ya go:  I love the following posts from Pinterest, I hope you do too!
