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.
