Happy New Year!

How was every one's first day of 2008? I hope your year is starting off well. The Schmitty house was finally put back together after the holiday festivities. The trees are down (we have our regular tree and a small one for the kids), the ornaments and decorations are packed away, the Christmas dishes are covered in bubble wrap and put away, the new toys have been added to the playroom, the house has been dusted and vacuumed, and I even cleaned out the refrigerator. And thank goodness I did because I found some leftover shrimp scampi from Christmas Eve. Imagine me when I opened that Tupperware container! WHOA NELLIE!

Don't you love how the house looks so shiny and new when all of the decorations are down? It's so nice, well until the kids come through like the tornadoes they are.

So, the big question. How many of you have made a list? You know, of all of your New Year's resolutions. I, honestly, did not make a list this year. Yes, I know, the QUEEN of lists did.NOT.make a list?! The horror! But I figured why make a list? I feel like a failure if I don't follow it. So instead I have decided to just improve my life in ways that need improving. I will do my best to make better what I would like better. I can't go wrong there, can I?

I tend to make day-to-day lists rather than big-picture lists.
The only thing on my list right now is to take down the Christmas decorations ;)

Happy New Year!

I didn't keep to many of last years resolutions. Your idea is much more realistic!

I did make a list.. yep. First time in a while.

It's just a list of personal things I want to change in my life in order to be a better mom, wife, sister and friend. Hopefully I won't let myself or the people I love down! LOL!

My only resolution this year is to have a healthy baby. Seems like I am half way to it now.

When I finally pulled out my treadmill the other day (after months away from it). I found an old cup, which at one point had contained milk. Ew.
