New Years Day

We’ve said goodbye to our guests. The dishwasher is running for the first time and the second round of dishes are stacked neatly beside the sink waiting for their turn. The dogs are sleeping on the couch in positions that look so awkward, but they’re so out of it, they don’t notice. My eyes have that itchy, I-haven’t-slept-enough kind of ache and we’re just about to fire up the Netflix and settle in for an afternoon of recovery and X-Files. Or maybe Bones. Possibly some Misfits so we can get our fill of inappropriate British humour. ‘Cause that’s the best kind.

2012 was a good enough year, I guess.

What about 2013?
  • I will get more pillows for my couches.
  • I will smother my dogs with hugs and kisses. Maybe I will make them cute sweaters against my husband’s wishes. 
  • I will read 20 books. Or maybe more.
  • I will go camping. I love camping. So much. 
  • I will hang out with friends as much as I can. Maybe I’ll even try to make some new ones this year. Or maybe I’ll try to make the ones I have closer.
  • I will kiss my husband every day.
  • I’ll make myself an afghan. 
  • We will figure out what we’re doing with the house and put whatever plan we decide into action. 
Once I have more energy, perhaps I’ll think of some goals that will actually push and stretch me, goals that will actually be hard but worth it. I don’t make resolutions, but goals I think are a good thing to have. Are you making goals? What are they?
Happy New Year, everyone. I hope you rang in the new year with style and grace and plenty of champagne!

  1. I love your list.. such attainable and realistic goals and ultimately what is most important in life (loving your husband, friends and puppies:)

  2. Garret and I just finished marathoning Bones on Netfliks. Love them! Hope you enjoyed some serious couch time yesterday…we forced the puppy to take snuggle naps with us as we watched TV. most excellent

  3. Those are truly worthwhile goals! I also love camping, gotta make that happen this year. And reading. I've never set a goal in terms of a number of books, but maybe something to try to keep me reading? Oh, and please make those dog sweaters. I've always wanted to buy a little rain coat for our dog, but my husband will not let me spend money on one (even though I'm quite sure our dog would love it!).
