Reflecting on the New Year in the eyes of my daughter, when she was 6 years old.


But she did this at six years of age. It popped up on my Facebook timeline.

Describe one wish you have for the New Year. “Chocolate”. OMG how funny!

When looking back at the past year, what were you most thankful for? “Parents”. ahh what a sweet little girl.

What do you most look forward to in the New Year? “Dinosaur museum”. So cute. <3 What is one goal for the New Year? Why is this important? "See Mom more". awe, such a sweetie pie. <3 Describe one new skill you learned last year. "Read". Yes, she is a very good reader. She is now 92nd percentile in reading. Mommy is amazed. If you could change one thing about last year, what would it be? "Not get up early". hahaha I don't blame you baby girl! <3 it's difficult to get up early for school. What is something you want to learn this year? "Science". Yes, she may be a scientists one day. She is excelling in science. What is the best book you read this year? "Dinosaur". I forgot, she was obsessed with dinosaurs. What a great reflection. I can remember the six year old she once was. baby girls clothes sets$100 Off Any Nectar Mattress!Link Cloaking and Tracking Software That Works - LinkTrackr

I can’t believe it is almost 2020!

Makes me feel old.

I do not do New Years resolutions, because now that I am older, I know that you never know what life will bring you, and how you will react and what you will do as a result. Life is very unpredictable sometimes.

Then again, a lot of things in my life are the same all the time.

I’ve had the same job, for seven years, do the same thing everyday for 12 years, because I have had the same career path for 12 years, and at the same time, I take care of people, and you never know what the day will bring.

I’ve been married with the same man for almost 16 years. Our relationship is solid and constant. It is a blessing.

So I don’t do resolutions. I want to lose weight, but I am surrounded by junk food all the time at work. I know I really like to eat. I would like to have more control.

I would like more time with my kids. I cut my hours, so I do have more time with them, but they are teenagers and want to listen to music all the time! I find myself talking to them when they are listening to music, and I am talking to myself.

I want to be out of debt, but my husband and I are enrolled in a debt program so we are actually going to be out of debt soon.

So I am not doing resolutions. I guess I am just a realist. I want to take everything one day at a time, to be able to deal with what’s going on realistically.

There won’t be any change without motivation, and action. Also looking at the root cause of what you want to change about yourself.

Everything has a reason, cause and effect. It takes time to work on this. I just can’t come up with unrealistic goals, without a ton of reflection and steps to change.

My life is pretty good as is. If there’s something to change, I will work on it, one step at a time, and not work on a ton of things at once. It doesn’t seem realistic, it seems like false hope.

Changing takes work and time. Some things you cannot change overnight or even within a year.

These are just my thoughts.

New Years is fun to celebrate though!

I’m glad I have it off, because I usually work Holidays, since I work in health care.

‘Twas the night before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas,in my messy house.
My creatures, my dogs are stirring, they want to go for a walk.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
If St. Nicolas comes to my house he will trip on the clutter all throughout my house.

The children are begging me to tell them what I got them for Christmas…
While visions of lap tops, phones, and expensive technology danced in their heads.
And mamma in her work clothes going in for a long exhausted shift
Has not even got her Christmas presents wrapped!!!!

Seriously though, I have to work in two hours, and I still haven’t wrapped any of my Christmas gifts.
I am such a procrastinator, I need to be more prepared next year! I must thrive on waiting until last minute. That is how I get motivated I guess. Not the best way to approach things. 😀
I get to work and spend Christmas Eve. taking are of those who cannot care for themselves, and whose families don’t visit them.
There is a purpose for me to work on Christmas Eve.
I can always wrap presents later.

I get this song in my head and this version during the Holiday season. I am such a procrastinator. It’s my fault. I’m not complaining. I love the holidays and get togethers with the whole family. I love going around and looking at the lights in the neighborhood, the display at the mini golf, at Water World, and the our local zoo. It’s so pretty and magical.
Next year I’ll learn, right? To not wait last minute.

Christmas is right around the corner!

I love Christmas, mostly because I get to spend time with my family. I work all the time! I love the decorations, giving gifts, spoiling the kids, and getting into the Christmas spirit.
I used to create my own Christmas cards with Adobe Photoshop, but I am job not that great at it! 
I found a few web sites with customized Christmas cards, I’m trying to decide which site to use, and which card to pick. These Christmas cards look so much better than the ones I make! HAHA. 
I have a big family, and most of my family is out of state, so it is nice to send pictures of the kids. 
I’m trying to decide who to go through to make a custom Christmas card. 
I am thinking about going through, or I’ll post an update afterwards! =) 
I also found customized Christmas tags. has free holiday printables! How cool. Thought I’d share. 🙂
