Hello, 2014!

It's hard to believe that another year is here already! Our family had an amazing Christmas, and I've been off work for two weeks. This week, C's daycare was open so I've had some great "me" time and a chance to do long-neglected projects like clean out closets and do a lot of purging {which now has me questioning whether to do yard sale or try consignment}.

Anyhow, right now, like many of you, I am focusing on the year ahead and trying to become a better me. I definitely need to lose the 10 lbs. I've put on in the last year {ugh} , save more money, and all the big, usual resolutions. 

But I want it to be more than that. I want it to extend to ALL aspects of my life. So, copying off some of my fellow bloggers/IG friends, I've decided instead to choose a word for 2014. 


While thinking about my goals, it kept coming back to the fact that I have so much on my plate. I make excuses for eating like crap because of how busy I am, and in turn make excuses not to work out. I make excuses for a messy house rather than getting off my duff, and encouraging my husband to do the same. Unfortunately, while a messy house may be OK, my lack of focus, at times, causes things to fall to the wayside.

This year, I will be focused on, and give 100 percent of my energy, to the task at hand. I will do some sort of exercise every day. I will clean up the kitchen and living room at night. I will be a better wife, mom, and employee.

I'm very excited about 2014. We don't have any huge plans for the year --- it's more of a posturing for some very big plans we have for 2015 --- but it's important as we will be getting things in line for next year.

What are your resolutions or words for 2014?
