I recently received an email from WordPress with my Year in Review report. Quite honestly, 2015 was pretty pitiful as far as blog posts went. One of my goals this year is to stay a little more up to date. Of course, it has taken me almost a week to publish my first post of the year, so I may not be off to the best start…
From where I sit right now, this year is looking to be an exciting one for our family. The twins are soon to be 11, Liam will become a teenager (eek!!), and Rob and I will celebrate our 15th anniversary. Soon we will be making the big move down to New Mexico, changing schools, moving into a small house, learning a new area. This fall, my mom, sister, and I will be taking a trip to Hawaii, compliments of my dad. There are so many things to be excited about, so many things to look forward to.
I have started cleaning up the house for the move. As if the kids’ room wasn’t already small enough, they are now sharing it with totes and boxes. Nathan helped me clean their room and we ended up with three donation bags and just as much garbage. It always feels good to minimize and organize. Looks so much better, too. Since Waldo is making the drive with us, there is not too much more inside that I need to do.
Waldo got his new front tires yesterday. He has a fresh oil change, too, so I think he is all ready to roll. He just has to survive one more ‘slightly chilly’ North Dakota January first. 🙂
Life has pretty much returned to normal now that the holidays are over. School is back in session, Rob is back on his normal work schedule. It is cold outside, snow on the ground, about what you would expect this time of year. I think this may be the calm before the storm for us, so best enjoy it while it lasts!
Happy New Year to you and yours! Wishing you your best year yet!
