Year in Review

2013 has been a good year.  I learned some lessons:

1.  I can’t do everything.  I hate this one.  But it is near impossible to truly care for anyone or anything well when I need to care for my two little ones so intensely.  Leaving campus ministry has been such a good decision for me personally and for our family but I still continue to struggle with recognizing the whole ‘only 24 hours in a day’ thing.

2.  I take things out on my husband.  A lot.  This is no bueno.  I have a great husband and have been trying to not allow him to be the target of my emotional messes.

I have had some highs:

1.  Living in our home.  I really love our house and continue to feel blessed that we get to live here.

2.  I had close to 5,000 people visit my blog because of my Miley Cyrus post.  This seems hilarious to me for some reason and is the closest to viral I will ever be.  Hey, I’ll take it!

3.  Leading a bible study for women at church.  I was really nervous about this one because I was going to do things a little differently then they had been done in the past, but it has been a joy for me to do something I love with women I love.

I don’t really do New Years Resolutions.  Its too big picture or something, and overwhelms me.  I like taking things a day at a time 🙂  But if you pressed me I would say something about organization and self-care and possibly beating my half-marathon time for 2014.

Tonight we are having a couple of friends over for dinner.  We had hoped to have more people over but I am thankful for a quiet night ahead of us.  I am not the Hostess with the Mostess.  I am the hostess with a two year old and four year old and am looking forward to sleeping strait through the clock turning midnight and waking up to a new year in the morning.  And if we miss a champagne toast tonight, there are always mimosas to be had, right? 

¡Feliz año nuevo!
