Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I crashed before the ball dropped last night. :0( Oh well, there's always next year, right? I think we were all still a bit weak from the Christmas stomach flu fiasco for much partying last night. The kids were in bed by 8:30, and I think Dan and I were passed out on the couch by 10:30! I made a pepperoni and a sausage roll, and neither one were gone.

So, onto my resolutions. This year, I would like to FINALLY get my raised beds put in for a permanent organic garden. I'd like to get more active and healthier. (Yes, of course I want to lose a few pounds because I'm fat, but more importantly, I don't want to have a heart attack when I'm 42 like my great-grandma! Heart disease runs rampant in my dad's side of the family, and I will not let myself be a statistic!) I'd like to have fun. We have never been on a family vacation of any kind, and I'd like to finally give that to the kids this year. I'm not talking Disney World (I know our limits), but something, somewhere, somehow.

Also, the Harry Potter Knitting and Crocheting House Cup started today! Yay! I signed up for a few classes, already. I don't want to over extend myself, and some of what I want to work on this month isn't covered in classes, so we'll see how much I end up doing.

Let's get healthier together! A friend of mine somehow got me to agree to run a 1/2 marathon later this year. Dunno how the hell THAT happened, but anyway...

Sounds good to me! I could use some motivation. I always sign up for the National Body Challenge, but last year I didn't do it at all. (Hey, I was pregnant then, I had an excuse, right? lol)
