Hope you had a relaxing weekend recovering from all the holiday fun! I’m always torn with what to do in these days between Christmas and New Years. Do I take all the Christmas stuff down, or just let it linger? How can decorations I loved so much at the beginning of December be so suddenly annoying? And should I clean out the playroom to make room for all the new toys, or just let it all pile up for a few days?
Three little boys times very generous grandparents, aunts and uncles times Christmas equals a house full of Legos, Hot Wheels, and Magformers!
And what about deciding on New Years resolutions? Do I truly want to commit to some sort of regular exercise (I really want to be a runner, but I’m so not a runner). I could try to read a certain number of books from a variety of genres? Maybe some sort of self-inflicted social media limitation? I’ve never been one to speak my resolutions out loud because I’m way too afraid of displaying my shortcomings publically.
I’m thinking maybe this year, I’ll write down quarterly goals for myself. Not looking to the whole year, but small achievable short term goals that might add up to something great at the end of the year. Still mulling that over…
In the meantime, I’d like to celebrate the end of 2013 by sharing my most popular recipes (based on your page views). Thanks for all the encouragement along the way. Looking forward to a great year of deliciously simple recipes in 2014!
