A week

It's been a week since I posted last. So much for 3 times a week. Oh well!

We had a good, busy week. Audrey got to perform prior to the Mizzou Pink Out gymnastics meet. She was so excited. A bit nervous, but very excited!

Hard to see her and a bit blurry, but she's there ready to go!

Saturday was another busy day, planned and unexpected stuff. Audrey had a make up class in the morning and then an eye appointment after. She will be wearing glasses for reading. She picked out pink glittery frames, for anyone that knows Audrey, I'm sure you are not surprised by that. She decided that after her appointment we should hit Baskin Robbins for a little bit of ice cream. Who was I to argue with her. Afterwards we headed to Micheal's to look at the new Project Life stuff and see what bands they had for her loom band since she's making bands for her classmates for Valentine's Day. While there my best friend called to see if we wanted to meet her and her son for a late lunch at the mall. Audrey is always up for a trip to the mall, so we went home, grabbed Dart and headed to the mall. A trip to Barnes and Noble always occurs when we are at the mall. My kids know I'm a sucker for books.

Sunday was a day of rest and screaming at the tv during the football games. I woke up feeling a bit crummy and decided later it was my body's way of revolting since I was actually cheering for the broncos. Only because my like for Peyton far outweighs my dislike for pretty boy Brady. I am not a fan of either team, but I do like Peyton, just wish he didn't play for the broncos. Was very happy the Seahawks pulled out the win. I am cheering for the Seahawks in the Super Bowl!! I think we might have to stock up on Skittles for the game in hopes of Lynch scoring several times.

Enjoyed an extra day to my weekend! Audrey had gymnastics, but other than that we didn't do much today. Another busy week ahead. Have a site monitor visit for one the studies and several meetings this week. Not looking forward to either really, but oh well. Wednesday Dart and I are going to the Harlem Globetrotters game! I cannot wait. He gets to sit on the bench during pre-game warm ups! This is our date for the month.

Today came with some sad news though. My brother in law's brother passed away today. He was 27 and had 2 young kids. His daughter is Audrey's age and his son is 5 or 6. Audrey and Emma always had fun together, my sister had them over to help her decorate her tree for Christmas and the girls were scheming how to get together again. Tonight when I told Audrey she said she was going to say extra prayers for Emma and send Dakota to watch over her. Aaron wasn't wearing his seat belt and was thrown from the truck. PLEASE always wear your seat belt. His accident was in the same area that my step dad rolled his concrete truck. Thankfully he was wearing his seat belt and managed to come away from the accident fairly unharmed. Had to get 7 stitches in his ear, but that was all.

New Year, New Attempt

I don't think I touched this blog at all in 2013! I'm hoping to change that in 2014! I'm going to blog for me! It will of course have posts about the crazy monsters that live here, Dart, Audrey, and probably our sweet kitty Blue! I hope to post about things we cook, the things I make, the things we do, probably some about work, and ME!!

Speaking of me, that is my word for the year! Taking better care of me, doing more of the things I enjoy, learning new things, challenging myself, and doing what I need to be a better and happier me!!

Like most of the rest of the world I did set some goals for 2014! I tried to set goals of things I really want to do and things I think I can do.

Read 24 books
Be more creative, make more things
Do more with the kids
Blog for me!
Take more pictures
Improve my health
Send and give more handmade cards
Get rid of clutter
Challenge myself daily
Project Life

With the BIG goals I know I need to set smaller goals, so I'm setting goals for each month. My goals for January are:

  • Read 2 books
  • Make at least 10 things
  • Game or movie time once a week. One game time will be tech free!
  • Blog at least 3 times a week
  • Take 5 pics a week
  • Take stairs every morning at work and 1 afternoon a week (I usually park on the 4th floor of the parking garage) Drink at least 3 glasses of water daily Some kind of stretching or strength training 3 times a week
  • Send /give 4 handmade cards Make 5 cards
  • Make organizing list Get rid of 20 things Make daily/weekly cleaning list
  • Sudoku or other type of puzzle nightly
  • Cover page Plan weekly Complete at least 3 weeks from 2013
I'm making pretty good progress on all of them, well except blog 3 times, since I just started, but I have plenty of weeks left this month!
