I know it’s cliche…but there is something refreshing about a New Year. It’s a time to look back on what occurred over the past year, what changes you want in your life, and how to make dreams a reality. It’s also a time to let go of things that have been dragging you down, and pick up things that will help lift your spirits.
Even the little things feel like a fresh start. A new planner, tucked away in a new handbag. In the past, I have always used a new planner for maybe a month. And every year, I say this is the year I will be organized and use it all the time. But 2017, I will use it :).
I used Christmas break to organize closets, cabinets and dressers. I also acknowledge that the toy organization is a worthless battle, and mainly left it as is.
Our little family officially has a foster care license in hand. A room ready. And an anxious 7 year old.
HJ and I are spending more time playing, and less time glued to a screen. At home, the laptop has only been used to print off coloring pages.
I am ready for the excitement that a new year brings.
