Whew

The holidays are officially over. And I'm ready for normalcy. Except, really, holiday-like events just keep on going for me. January will be filled with wedding showers and, not to mention, my BIRTHDAY week. :) And then going right into a wedding and honeymoon in February. I suppose I can put off normalcy for a little while longer.

However, all this madness has been throwing my routine off majorly. I can't get out of bed in the mornings because I'm up too late doing 'wedding stuff' or I'm just lazy. And when my morning routine suffers...the whole day seems to. I also have a month to de-clutter and organize and rearrange and move all of Devin's stuff in.

This leads me to a couple resolutions of sorts (it's the time of year people do that, right?)...

1. Do not put off for tomorrow what could be (and needs to be) done today. I feel this is the only way I will not be scrambling around and a stressed mess at the end of this month.

2. Get back to my rule of being out of bed about 2 hours before I need to start work or leave the house. This allows plenty of time to read, journal, chill, work out...all the things that when not done in that time slot, won't get done at all. And no email/blogs/pinterest before all those things.

And for fun...Dev & I at our first wedding shower...


Also, anyone have any interesting new year resolutions you care to share?

Em, Love the pic!! As always. I think your out of bed 2 hours before leaving the house resolution is a great one - I probably should have one about getting up an hour before Clive wakes up....I'll have to think on that. But one thing I've 'resolved' to do is admire Jesus more in 2012...starting a list of things I love about him.

Wow, he's a keeper for sure!
I am also getting back on track with getting out of bed when I need to...1.5 hours before the kiddos!
And since An mentions, potty-training, that should definitely be on my list too...yuck.
