Happy New Year!

I'm in a bit of denial that it is now 2009 ~ I'm still trying to figure out how 2008 sped by so quickly. I spent some time today, like a lot of people, thinking about the past year, and then I spend some time thinking about the past few years. I don't generally make New Year's resolutions, and I'm not necessarily making any this year. I am, however, going to try really hard to live my life differently. Okay, so I suppose that is a resolution of sorts. My thoughts are simple - - I plan to start putting some of the same effort toward caring for myself, in the manner that I care for my husband and children every day. I'm going to make an effort to explore my own interests. I'm going to try not to expect so much from myself. As far as self-care goes, the past couple of years have shown me that I am not getting any younger. I see it in the mirror, I feel it in my body, and I don't like it! Much to do. I'm looking forward to a happy, challenging, & healthful 2009, and I wish the same for you.

I love you Heather here's to a great year buddy!! I to cannot believe how fast this year went. I was thinking about how 2000 seems like yesterday and here we are almost a decade away from it.

Its amazing that as, ahem, we get older how time seems to fly by and slip pass us. Happy New Year! Wishing you and your family all the best!

Hi Heath,
I could have written this same post. It's really really hard to put self-care high on my list of to dos when I feel that there is so many things in front of it- the kids, the husband, the house is a mess and so on...
I basically am making the same vows for 2009- (btw-looks like a great Oprah this week on self care_
hope you have a fabulous 2009
Kirsten
