How is it already a week into 2012? Like many of you, the chaos of the holidays is finally subsiding and I’m hoping that we can get back into our regular routine this week, and that includes more blogging by yours truly! The girls are keeping me on my toes – Rowan learned how to pull up to a stand on New Year’s Day and she’s trying her hardest to walk but lacks the balance to do it, so there are lots of bumps and near-misses around here. She’s almost 10 months old and I’m starting to think about her first birthday already!
We took Ashlyn to see her very first movie in the theater yesterday – Beauty and the Beast and the only way to describe it was “magical”. She loved every moment of it, including the popcorn, of course, and the TANGLED EVER AFTER short film at the beginning was a highlight:
I try not to make too many resolutions but I have 3 in mind for this year:
- the usual ‘make exercise a priorty';
- meal plan – this year I mean it! I want to use my slowcooker a lot more and be more adventurous. I have a collection of cookbooks and I want to make good use of them;
- get and stay organized! I’m usually pretty good, it’s the Virgo in me, but with 2 young girls I find the clutter gets away from me. I want to get on top of the little things that clutter up my house and start doing small cleans every day instead of a larger, but easy to get postponed, clean on weekends.
How’s 2012 treating you so far? Any resolutions made, and any broken yet? Better yet, any tips on how to achieve my resolutions? I can use all of the help I can get!
