Well, it's 2013 now. And it doesn't feel much different than yesterday. Last night I didn't even try to stay up late. I went to bed at 10. Fell asleep soon after and then slept in today. So if my New Year's Resolution was to sleep a lot, I would have been on top of my game!
But I don't make New Year's Resolutions only because I'm perfect just the way I am. Hardy-har-har.
I did start thinking about my goals for 2013. I should have them pounded out in the next couple of days. I did this last year and I loved seeing what I was accomplishing. Even when there were days that I felt I did nothing at all, I knew in the grand scheme of things, I was making progress.
I see some people are choosing words for 2013. I thought that was a great idea until I couldn't come up with a word. Gratitude? Organize? Wonder? Simple? They all sounded great until I realize that I would have to actually put them to work. Which would be like making goals. And see the paragraph above for that.
So for me today was just another day. I cleaned out Julie's room. I know have a big mound of stuff to take to the thift store. I put together Tot School work for tomorrow. And I went to the store and bought some milk. I lead a very exciting life.
The highlight of my day was finding my 1000 Gift journal that I had lost a couple of weeks ago. Which it is now obvious that I fell off the wagon on listing gifts. So I'm starting back up. It's so neat to see what I had written this past year.

Jax packed a bag to entertain himself while we were running errands and even packed Julie some toys!

None of these were earth shattering. But it was neat to read through them. I ended up with #294 so I didn't fail completely. My journal is back on my kitchen counter tonight. Ready to count more gifts.
#295 Welcome 2013.
