I'm usually so good at New Year's Resolutions.
After the beautiful chaos and clutter of Christmas, I'm ready to dejunk, detox, and de-whatever else has been making me crazy over the previous year.
But this year was different.
We had just moved into a 1960's fixer-upper and the to-do list was so overwhelming that the new year came and went with nary a resolution being thought about, much less written down.
Then there was the whirlwind trip to the mainland: visits, Chicks, errands, dr. appointments, etc.
Then back to Maui to make up for being an absentee mom: LOTS of cooking and cleaning, seminary, homeschooling, damage control, more remodeling of said fixer-upper.
Phew...just now catching my breath.
Now, about those resolutions...
I have decided that this is the year of simple.
There are just a few things I want to write down so that I have definitive goals in mind.
Before the year ends I want to:
1. Read more books.
2. Hug my kids more.
3. Spend time, not money, on things that matter most.
4. Move every day (my body, not my house.)
5. Treat everyone I meet like they are the most important person in the world.
