The First Post of 2015!



I'm sure this isn't just dawning on you like it is me, but I'm having to just pause for a moment and consider the fact that it's been 15 years since we rang in the new millennium. Just ponder that for a quick second.

Okay, moving on.

This morning, Grant and I were discussing our goals for the year. He told me that he has decided that 2015 is going to be the year that he is going to care less. "Funny" I replied, "2015 is going to be the year that I am going to care more."

It's just so us. I am always nonchalant and I don't pay attention to details. He is full of worry and what-ifs and if something can be done in 5 minutes he's going to do it in 30 because he likes to make things complicated. So, I'm caring more this year and he's caring less. Essentially, we will be canceling each other out.  C'est la vie!

So, what have I done today? I've gotten some stuff done! I am a firm believer that you only get ONE January 1st a year, and it's of the utmost importance that I use it wisely. It's a fresh page, a clean slate, a new year and a new day. If I don't spend a few hours being incredibly productive today, the whole year is shot. So, today, I cleaned out bathroom drawers, reorganized some counter space, took down Christmas decor and straightened up our room.

About 20 minutes before I took this picture, there were clothes all over the floor, papers on my nightstand, a few bottles of water, and the bed was unmade. Also, while I've been cleaning, Ellie was reading books on the bed, so there were a few or 15 books scattered about. Here's the result of 20 minutes of getting it done:

Ahhhhhh. That feels better, y'all.

Now to get the kitchen accomplished and the living room back in order now that the tree is gone! It's time to make a dent in that to do list.

Happy New Year, friends. I'm so thankful for all of you readers and I am blown away that people still read this thing after all these years. Thanks for walking through life with me and encouraging me and sticking with me. To be honest, 2015 will bring lots of changes for our little family, so stay tuned for all of that and the anxiety/panic attacks that will likely coincide with each of these changes. I'll probably need to be medicated at some point, so I'll let you know when we're getting to that level of stress.

Here's to a great year!
