New Year. New Beginnings. Just New…

Happy New Year!

Hard to believe it’s already 2017. I’m excited for a new year of new endeavors and goals to be met. We spent NYE at home for the first time (we use go to church on NYE to bring in the new year). This time we have a 5 month old baby; therefore I wasn’t willing to have him out past midnight when we finally seem to have gotten him to a semi sleep schedule of going to bed between 7 and 8:30pm. Granted he doesn’t stay asleep for long periods of time (yet).

E.K. went to sleep at approx. 8:15pm last night. The hubs and I sat in our bedroom watching the NYE special on T.V. — well, I was TRYING to watch television and he was on his laptop. At about 10pm, my eyes got heavier and heavier. Big E advised me to “take a nap” and I obliged after asking him to wake me up for the countdown. Whelp, total FAIL. LOL. I was KNOCKED OUT and calling home the hogs. Apparently my other half came over to my side of the bed to kiss me and wish me a happy new year and I went back to calling the hogs home (per his explanation). I’m a tad bit disappointed that I missed the countdown, but I’m Blessed. There are some who didn’t wake up this morning and I did… so I’m not going to beat myself up for being a first time mom who is sleep deprived and overall exhausted most times.

I’m excited to get “big thangs popping” this year starting with a detailed budget! I hope each of you have a very Blessed, prosperous and healthy 2017.

Until next time…
