|NYE at the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans, LA|
Since we had a very, very late night we all slept in this morning. It was 10:30 when I woke up, which is unheard of for me. Both girls didn't get up until after noon and are very cranky today. Our schedule is all mixed up and I foresee Monday is going to be difficult when it's back to school. Clint cooked us a New Year's dinner of roast, cabbage rolls, and black eyed peas. Gotta try for that promised money and luck! I had planned to start packing up Christmas today, but I haven't gotten past moving a few knick nacks off the piano. Maybe later I'll drag in a few totes and start to pack up. Maybe not. There's always tomorrow.... My Mom was one who had Christmas put away by 4pm on December 25. I can't say I blame her! I am so ready to get my house back in order!!
One of my goals every January is to de-clutter. I usually do pretty good for a while then all is lost. This year though, I think I am going to make a schedule and do one room a week. In ten weeks I should have every room done, except for Clint's office (big no-no) and the garage. The garage is on a whole different level. We already had a lot of stuff stored in there, then we had to empty my parents' house. Some things I just could not part with and so many things I didn't know what to do with, so in the garage it went. Totes and boxes and just stuff. Maybe I can make the garage Clint's goal. Ha Ha.
I hope to go back to the gym. I will go back next week, but I am so limited on what I can do right now. The break has been nice and I haven't gained any weight, but I need to get back to my routine. Gym time makes me happy, and lately... well, I need my happy place. It's so frustrating to have the desire to do something and physically I can't. Healthy eating also went out of the window, so I need to get back on track. I should be hearing from my insurance company any day now about the procedure I need on my leg. Once my leg is better I'll be able to resume normal activity. Our Disney trip is looming also, and with the issues I have walking and standing, I can't help but worry about affecting our trip..... Guess I'll cross that bridge when it gets here.
On this last Holdailies post, I leave you with a bang... Here's a small peek at midnight festivities here in Bayou Blue, Louisiana. Thanks to all who stopped by over the last 32 days!!! I enjoyed participating this year and look forward to next!
May 2014 be your year....
