Happy New Year

I have been on vacation for over a week. Since the first day, I have found myself feeling the end approaching rapidly, and it nags at me and distracts me from enjoying what's going on around me. I have always been like this, had a case of the "Sundays." Even on Saturday, I'm filled with that dread of the end of the fun. If there should be a New Year's Resolution by me, it should be this: no more dread. I need to stop thinking about tomorrow and really carpe the diem. It is something that really affects me and ruins what free time I do have.

This morning, when I came walking into the den, the first thing I saw were these little shoes sticking out from under the curtain next to the sliding glass door. It reminded me of how much fun we had last night with our sparklers and (small) fireworks. We came in the door and immediately took off our shoes. Rowan and I had had such a wonderful day. We went to the movies together, and we went to get the fireworks. Clarence cooked this awesome dinner. I have to take every moment for what it is worth. I have to make something of every, single day. Life is good. Happy New Year!


Fun with the timer.

Here I am
