Hello January....Hello 2014!10:50 PM
A blank slate, a completely white book just waiting to be written.
I used to hate the end of the year and the beginning of a new one, because I always felt like I didn't know what was around the corner and I worried about what was to come. Ridiculous!
The past few years I have chosen to concentrate on the bright side of things, to think about the fact that it's a whole new unwritten chapter that I get the privilege to pen. What is more exciting than that?
Will there be things that are out of my control? Absolutely, but for the most part it's up to me to make it the best year possible.
I started today on a quiet note. Hung around the house, puttered around a little here and there, got all the holiday decorations put away and things cleaned up.
Hubby and I also reorganized our bedroom and moved some things around.
Dinner was supposed to be beef stew but the men got a sudden craving for burgers, so that is what we had instead. The stew will be for tomorrow night, at least I don't have to worry about making dinner right?
It's now almost 11pm but I am still plugging away on the computer, working on the new menu plan and grocery list so I can go shopping tomorrow.
The hubster and I will be making a quick trip to base for some errands, some groceries and I'm hoping, a hair cut for myself. I've let my hair grow super long but honestly, between you and me, I don't like it.....I think my long hair days are over and I'm ready to go back to my spunky bob.
So yeah, this is how I spent my first day of 2014, looking forward to the future and not worrying about things I have no control over.
How did YOU spend yours?
