I've decided to come back to blogging seeing how this is the year the world is going to end and all, I thought I would get some thoughts down before the 12-12-12 date. I did a poor job of blogging in '11 and just in case I wasn't feeling badly enough about it, I was reminded, regularly, that I wasn't blogging. You know who you are. Yes, I mean you, too.

But I think I really did miss it. I am not sure what happened in 2011 that made me stop. I want to say that I was busy, but that is super lame. I also want to say that I ran out of things to talk about due to the cyclical nature of my life, but Joey managed to poop in a pool and Natalie broke her arm, so right there I have two things that were totally worthy of sharing. The truth is, dare I say it, I was lazy. LAZY! Me! I can't believe it either, so rather that say I was "lazy", let's just say I was cooking. Which, let's be honest, we all know is really what I was doing for most of the year. Am I busy? Sure, but not too busy to blog. Am I tired, of course, but I still stay up too late and wake up too early, so somewhere in there I could have blogged, but I didn't.

Today starts a new year, and if I love nothing else about the hype of New Year, it is that we all have a chance to start fresh, decide who we want to work to become for the next 365 days. I love resolutions. I resolve to do something at least once a day. Last year, I think I resolved to do eleven things... pretty sure I only did three. And by three, I mean two and a half. This year I thought really hard about what is is that I really need to do better. So this morning, while enjoying my coffee, I decided that in 2012 I am going to spend more time loving me. I am convinced that if I follow through on this resolution, it will behoove the entire family. When I fail to meet my own outlandish expectations, our household can have a bit of a black mommy cloud over it. Does this mean that I am going to be a better blogger in 2012? I don't know, but I might cut myself a little more slack if I don't get to it.

Happy 2012, everyone! Keep reading and keep commenting... it helps.

  1. Funny enough I was just telling myself that I need to try and get back to blogging again.....I had a lot of fun with it when I was.....but I guess I could say I was busy too....but lazy is probably a better word....although I def was not sitting around with my feet up eating chips watching the Travel Channel (an addiction, I will admit). So I will try to blog more and get back to doing more theater (if I can), but for tonight.....I will post this comment, because yes.....comments do help!

    oh and more hot yoga in 2012 is another good thing to do to love yourself :) I'm gonna try for at least once a week, but will cut myself some slack too if needed (good advice)

    Happy New Year to the other KD :)
