So how was everyone's New Years celebrations? We actually made it to midnight...had our sip of champagne and went straight to bed. LOL. But what was important...? I did what I set out to do. Easy-peasy you say? Not for me. But it started out my new year exactly like I wanted. I followed through with my first goal of the year. We had a variety of appetizers and sat around with little man and played games with him. Our oldest went to a church lock-in with friends and had a great time.

I love this time of year. Fresh and full of motivation. My writing buddies are all focused and determined which fuels my fire. I'm hearing the word determination alot. I was able to catch up on some of my crits, but not all. At least I put forth a valiant effort and didn't just give up. I even worked yesterday while everyone was laying around being lazy.

With that said...I'm off to butcher and rebuild my chapter. Have a productive day!!

Good for you, girl! You'll also find if you cut out the junk and eat more fruit and veggies, you'll have more energy to do what you need to do. I'm down 12 pounds so far.

So glad to hear about D going to the lock-in. Hallelujah!

LJ and I had the same kind of bringing in the new year--with the kids. And we watched reruns of the Shrek movies up until the ball was dropped. It is funny how we did so many things alike- my two boys went to a church lock in last Friday night. Happy New Year!

Chicki ~ You go, girl! We've gotten better about not buying junk food. Little man knows now that if he wants snacks to ask for yogurt or apples.

Val ~ We've stayed home for several years now. It's just not worth risking drinking and driving or dealing with drunk idiots. We usually have a few friends over but this year everyone was out of town. It was so nice this year...laid back and easy!
