Well I am now to that depressing part of Christmas vacation where I realize reality is about to hit and I am going to STRUGGLE. This break was sooooooooo nice. I stayed up too late, slept in too much, ate too much, exercised too little, spent too much money, watched a lot of TV, visited family and friends, took too many naps, read a little and even was super productive as far as accomplishing things. Pretty much it was freaking awesome. I finished three sewing projects, got my hair done, got Moki her vaccinations, grocery shopped, saw 4 movies, cleaned my house, put away Christmas. These things would not normally be noteworthy but during basketball season that is quite the list of accomplishments.
New Years Eve was a riot. I was feeling like a bum because I didn't have any big plans. But in the end it was a great night for me. Dinner with family and then games. We were Anthony's back up plan...or so he said all. day. long. As the night was coming to a close and he started showing some of my cousins daughters his dance moves that work 100% of the time (according to him) it became very obvious why he was spending the evening with us.
This week was really about enjoying my break and accomplishing lots of little things.Anthony and I hiked on the Alpine Loop road. Since it hasn't snowed in awhile I knew it would not be good snowshoeing so we just walked. It was a really nice day.
Moki and I also ran/walked on the Bonneville shoreline trail. There is a 3 mile section we like to do.
There was of course lots and lots of basketball. The main Gym at Mountain View is the length of one extra long court and then the width of a normal court. It goes on and on forever. So glad the players are running those long sprints and not me. I would probably die.
I loved this quilt my grandma Brown made. It matches my Christmas decor perfectly. All the presents I recieved this year were perfect for me and I am so grateful to those that gave them.
One night I was tying a baby quilt and Moki would not leave me alone. First she was laying on it and then trying to eat it. Not helpful.
I am excited for the New Year. This last year I had a couple of health challenges. The doctor and I finally got them worked out and I feel so much better. I am so excited to start this year. I actually designed a card on Shutterfly I was going to print and send off for New Years and then didn't. I loved the back of the card.
"Smile every chance you get. Not because life has been easy, perfect, or exactly as you had anticipated, but because you choose to be happy and grateful for all the good things you do have and all the problems you know you don't have." Life is not what I predicted but I still love my life. Here's to another year of making adventures, spending time with those I love, and somehow through it all becoming more like the person Heavenly Father wants me to be. Here's to 2014......may it be the best year yet! I came up with it all on my own, well minus the stuff in parenthesis.
The main reason I didn't send the card because it is so lame to attach pictures of just me. Feels very weird. But this coming Christmas I think I am going to just do it because I love getting cards.
This year I want to work on being healthier9 mainly eating better), spending less time on social network and more time reading for fun and studying scriptures, and I want to really set up a budget that I actual follow. We will see how that all goes.
