Simplify - Part 2

I am not going to change my word for the year. My reasons?

Well, first off -- I really didn't simplify my life this past year. Call it a New Year's Resolution gone bad. Call it my inability to live up to my word.

Call it me being too cheap to go out and buy a new decoration. Remember?



I actually like it. And, I don't think it's a bad way to live for the rest of my days, really. And, since I can be practical and cheap at the same time, I'm sticking with it.

Simplify.

We've had a fun couple of days since Christmas. Mark and I enjoyed a great mini-getaway. His blog has all the details. . . well, some of them.

We have pictures, too. But, as I pointed out to him -- our pictures are of other stuff and not each other. We don't take many pictures of each other, our of ourselves.

New Year's Eve was spent here at our house with Lori's family and my parents. We laughed until we hurt. Daniel seems to be enjoying his gift (from us) of "The Office" trivia game. I won the first time. HA!! I think Chris won the 2nd game -- but honestly, we laughed so hard through it, I don't remember. And yes, that IS what she said!

I can also say (now) that I made Lori & Chris AND Steve & Bettie rag quilts for their Christmas presents. I think I have pictures of both of them opening their gifts. When I find those pics, I'll post them.

I gave my mom a quilted table runner (nearly finished). I have to finish the machine quilting on the border, and attach the binding. Then, I'll give it to her to actually USE.

I'm sure there's more to say and share. But, for now, I'm going to try to enjoy this last day at home with both kids. The key word in that sentence is "TRY" because they're fighting, fussing, and generally bugging the crap out of each other. That's right, Monday will NOT be here soon enough.

So, there it is -- my first post of 2009. I promise more pictures in the future. I promise more consistent posts. And, most of all, I promise to continue to walk you through my insane life as I do my best to simplify it!

I didn't know you the full year beofre, but I'll bet you lived up to your resolution more than you gave yourself credit for.

Don't be so hard on yourself!

I think we all need to simplify...Life has become too complicated...and too fast.
