We had a great New Year's Eve with family in our own home! My brother and SIL have a torn-up kitchen, so we got to spend Christmas and New Year's Eve (and Thanksgiving) right here at my house. It was pretty great. We usually spend time at their house because it's bigger and easier to spread out in. I enjoyed entertaining in my own house. All the cooking seemed so much easier, even though I had to do dishes, too. Maybe I'll get to host another holiday, now that they have discovered that we don't live at the end of the world--it's just a couple blocks. To their house, not the end of the world.
One of the hardest things to me about blogging is writing about what I'm thinking and doing, and not what I'm planning to do. I see other blogs with pictures and beautifully written instructions about crafts or food, but I don't think that's my kind of blog. I just want to blog about what is going on, and have a long-term diary to refer to. I find that if I write about what I'm planning, I just get depressed when I discover that it didn't happen.
However, this is the first of the year, and in the spirit of resolutions, I'll share that I intend to blog more this year. Just enough to keep up with myself, and justify the $$ I spend on typepad every month :-/
I have several other resolutions that I will track on my own, and I may decide to share them later. Maybe not :-)
