A new year…what a ride!

Tonight I had the unfortunate pleasure of working instead of spending it with Unexpected Dad and my Monkey. But all things aside at least I didn’t make an ass out of myself.

The past year has brought a lot of changes to our life (A DISHWASHER AND TUBS). It was a mostly good year with some ups and downs but mostly ups. So I sit here thinking about the upcoming year and what I hope to see it bring (I need to unwind as I just walked in the door).

One of the things I hope for is that Monkey starts to eat better. Don’t get me wrong she eats…just what she wants and nothing else. This makes it difficult to balance her diet as she won’t eat meat, is picky about vegetables, and will only eat cheese slices. Now give her chocolate and man that kid gobbles it down…maybe I should cover everything in chocolate.

I also hope for stronger stability in our finances. We don’t struggle but it would be nice to go somewhere warm next year instead of thinking about it and saying next year.

If my job could be more interesting or engaging that would be great but the best would be if I won the lottery…now here’s to hoping!

But most of all I wish for happiness. Not just for me and those I love but for everyone. Happiness in who you are and where you are going. Joy in the little things like a naked 2 year oldĀ bum running away from you giggling. Stop worrying about the past as it can’t be changed and you accomplish nothing but dwelling on it. Look to the future and if it seems bleak CHANGE something as nothing is handed to you on a platter…except maybe the lottery. Dream big but also dream realistically. But most of all Love yourself for you can’t love anyone without loving you first.

Happy New Year’s and may this year bring you the blessing of happiness.
