Happy New Year

Here I am!  I'm here to wish you a very Happy New Year! 

Again, I am so sorry I've been out of it for December. I get sidetracked and pulled in a million directions during December that I tend to lose myself. 

How was your holiday break?  

Mine would have been a lot better if hubs and I didn't have this flu-like bug. We both ended up with bronchitis. I'm finally feeling more like myself; he's on his way to feeling more human.  It seems everyone I spoke with during the last week was sick on Christmas or during the week. 

This bug kickedmyass. Sorry, but it's true.  I slept a lot during the last week!  We stayed in our pajamas. We did just about nothing. It was horrible and wonderful all wrapped up in one. Now that I'm feeling better, I want to get all the house projects done that we were going to work on while hubs was home (mostly organizing) as well as do some fun stuff. Rome was not built in a day. 

So, what about 2013?  Well, New Year's is over-rated in my humble opinion.  I gave up on resolutions years ago because my only resolution has been to lose weight and you know how well that's worked out for me! Last year I made a few goals for myself, a sort of bucket list. Some of it went well while other parts went by the wayside.  I thought that I would try something like that again this year. 

That all being said, what are my goals and aspirations for 2013?
Well, I need a bit more time to really think about it. One would think I would have done that while laying on the couch sick last week. Oh well. 

2013 Bucketlist
  1. The gym is holding a biggest loser competition. I was "bullied" into joining. My goal is to not give up and do the best that I can do. I'm not sure yet of the rules and regulations but I plan to use every last bit of help that I can get. 
  2. Stop using the credit card (again). We went nearly 2 years without touching the darn thing! We just need to get through the next few weeks and then I can put the thing away and (hopefully) won't need to touch it again for a very, very long time. 
  3. Scrapbook. I would like to spend more time in my scraproom. I have a nice space with lots of supplies and tools. The only thing stopping me from enjoying the space is me. For some reason I make myself feel guilty for taking some me time. So silly too because 1/2 of the time I'm avoiding the feeling guilty thing for spending time on myself, I'm on the stupid computer. Hello!  What's the difference. 
Alright, that's all I have for right now. I'll continue to work on it over the next few days. I mainly wanted to pop in to let you know that I haven't fallen off the planet and to wish you a Happy New Year!!! 


  1. Glad you're feeling better! Wishing you a healthy 2013 :)

    1. Thank you! And I hope you have a happy and healthy 2013

  2. Happy New Year Jenn! Well, maybe it is *your* year to be the biggest loser! Take the challenge in a fun competitive spirit--kick a$$, you know? No one can outdo you! Nice girls *can* be competitive! Actually, we nice girls can just womp others, but we will be kind and supportive when we win. :D

    As you know, I have a lot of faith in you. I really believe this is your year to--Just do it!--as Nike says. You are very deserving of a good life. I really believe that your mindset is in a great place for you to be a girl monster in the gym and for weight. So...let me see what you got. That's a challenge and I'm very serious. :D

    1. You brought a tear to my eye Marion! Thanks for that!
      I'm feeling like a failure because I am up on the scale for December. I know I was sick and ate a lot of comfort food during the last week or two. I should have been stronger but I can't beat myself up! I'm moving on.

      Thanks so much for your support!!!! It means a lot to me!
