Yes, I know there hasn't been much posting this week (except for my Fancy post yesterday). I have to say I have been utterly lazy all week. I brought up some yarn to do some knitting and it's laid lonely in the basket all week. No crafting, barely any reading, mostly napping and watching movies and eating. And to tell the truth, I think I really needed it.
We are blessed to hang out at Matt's parents in the snowy Rocky Mts. It's one of those places I instantly walk into and just "relax." There's no other word for it.
We've had a small, quiet Christmas with Matt's parent and his brother and sister. I've spent some great one-on-one time with my kids, just reading or coloring, playing on the floor with new toys--the little stuff that I sometimes push aside. We've had a family movie night with Up and homemade orange julius; sledding with daddy down the driveway; family cuddle time on the bed each night before bedtime. It's been a special time for our family to reconnect.
I've also been thinking about the new year a lot. And also avoiding making some goals for the new year. It seems overwhelming to think of all the areas of my life I want to improve. Exercise more, eat less, read more of the Word, remember to take those prenatal vitamins. Oh, and simplify. I must simplify.
But tomorrow is the first and I will wake up and spend some time with the Lord and talk to him about what he wants for 2010. Maybe that's the problem--I've been thinking about what I want to do next year and not asking God what he has in store.
