I was always told that whatever you spend your time doing on the first day of the year, is how you spend the rest of the year.

This is not a good sign.

I changed at least 4 poopy diapers.

I cleaned the living room.

I tried to take a nap, but was interrupted consistently by Gunner's children.

I washed three loads of dishes.

I walked the dog in frigid temperatures where my nose hairs were freezing.

On the other hand....

I have three healthy children even if they are a little rough around the edges some days.

I have a husband that loves me more than anything else in the world.

I am healthy, love to workout, and have big plans for this year.

Gunner will be home this year, and we will bid the Army goodbye.  That's good and bad in a way.

Deployments will come to an end for us.  (knock on wood)

Even if I still can't find my camera battery charger, I can afford to buy a new one.

The list goes on, so hopefully 2011 will turn out much better than 2010!

I don't believe the preview notion. Most people are still in holiday mood out of town or with family visiting. It takes a bit to get organized and get going. It's all about the attitude. Happy New Year!

"mood" was supposed to be "mode"

Re. 4 poopy diaper's, it's a good thing that there are only 4 of you living there.

I am glad you can see some things to be grateful for. If the rest of the year will be spent doing what I did on day 1....well, lets just say there will be a lot of nothing getting done other than laundry and gaining two pounds a day even when exercising. Hmpf!

Seriously, I am not sure if I shared this with you, but check out a place called Good List Daily. I post there (used to be daily, but know whenever I feel I need to remember to be grateful.)

Have a great year, the time you have been waiting for is drawing near!!!! Aren't you excited??
