Happy New Year

It's here...the New Year...I hope it is better than last year.  Most of 2012 was great, I only have issues with the last four months, but enough of that.

I am trying to make a fresh start with the new year.  Now, that doesn't mean I won't slide back occasionally, but I will try to do my best to push hard and push forward.

We have a work day tomorrow at school and I am thankful for that.  I would love to should say that I worked on school projects, or organized something, but I did not.  I enjoyed ALL my time with family and friends.  I will spend tomorrow getting ready for my new school year.  In the past I would really try hard to put my family first, but I was guilty of thinking we would have more time to do things we wanted to do--LATER.  I make a very conscience effort to live in the moment now.  Sometimes watching a movie with family or visiting with friends is the most important thing for me to do at that moment.  And I will not feel guilty about it.  Don't get me wrong, there is time when I need to work on school projects, but it will not become the priority.  I am hoping know that I can balance family and work and still find happiness in the middle.

If this wasn't enough, I am going to try a Zumba workout with my sister-in-law tomorrow night.  I am not very coordinated, so I hope I don't break anything...wish me luck!

So, what did you do on your break?  Or will you be trying something new?


  1. Barb...you will LOVE ZUMBA! Don't get caught up in getting everything right! And don't give up after just one class. It takes at least three to begin to really catch on! Start w/you feet and when you feel like you've got those, add your arms. :) Just keep moving, smile, laugh, and have fun!

    1. I did have a lot of fun! Thanks for all the great advice, it helped keep me upright---lol.
