New Years is my birthday and this year I turned the big 3-0! It was so nice, I feel like I am finally really truly an adult. Is that weird? Oh well, I really like it. The best part was that Aaron got me diamond earrings!!! Oh, he is so good. It was so special. I loved my birthday and my presents. Also my sister in law was cleaning out her fabric and she gave me a ton of cute boy fabric which for me was basically Christmas all over again. I made the pajamas pants below from some super cute flannel.
Aside from my b-day I felt like I needed to take advantage of the fresh start that the new year brings and do some things a little differently. I stopped making goals of exercising long ago, and the other ones that I make every year because I have faced the fact that I will never consistently exercise and all the other stuff that I make goals about never ever effects whether I actually do them or not. However, this year I have some big picture things that I would like to have happen.
-One is that I would like to be a better friend and get out of my comfort zone more to plan things. Because I am a little bit of a home-body.
-Two is get outside and Do things with Julian, because again I get caught up in all the cleaning and junk I need to do at home.
-Three I would like to get to bed early. This would pretty much be a miracle because I cannot go to bed early. It is impossible for me but Aaron and I have this idea that if we went to bed at 10 or 10:30 we could read till 10:30 or 11:00, and that would give us some down time, as well as some personal time to read whatever we want. Anyway, that incentive of reading time may help me to get to bed on time. So far I have not been able to sleep lately and have been reading till one or two in the morning anyway but I have faith that this could really work.
-Besides those ideas, I want to try to follow Jesus' example better, I want to try to be more like him. I am hoping the desire takes me a long way because I have been kind of puzzled about how to actually do that.
Happy New year, and good luck with your new years dreams and wishes:)
