I'm Back!

Arghhhhh!  I feel like I am always apologizing for my absence from this here little blog!

I would really like to be more regular in my posting - but life always seems to get in the way.  Isn't that everyone's story these days?

Lately, I have been understanding more and more what it means to be a "soccer mom".  I spend most of my late afternoons, evenings and weekends either sitting in my car waiting for a practice/tutoring session to end, or watching one of my children play or perform!

Somewhere in there, I do find time to get a few projects done.

Just yesterday I was able to finish a wreath that I had purchased the supplies to make, but just hadn't had the time to get started on.  It actually took less time than I thought it would and turned out really nice!

We are getting ready to start a major renovation project at our house - removing a wall and installing hardwoods throughout our first floor.  I'm excited to keep you posted with pics throughout the process!

Happy 2013!

I really love the promise of the new year - an opportunity to set new goals and get a fresh start on some old ones!

I always like to start out with a word of the year, following the example of one of my favorite bloggers, Ali Edwards.  My word this year is "ACT".  I really want to work to tackle my problem with procrastination in all areas of my life.  I know that if I can stop procrastinating and begin "acting" I will decrease the amount of stress I feel each and every day.  I'll keep you posted on how that goes:)

Today I will work on my list of goals so that I can share those here with all of you!

Also on my list of things to do today - get started on cleaning up and organizing my office!  I decided to participate in an online challenge to get organized in 2013.  First assignment is office - and I am ready to make mine more workable!

Here's hoping you all have a wonderful 2013 and that we all reach our goals!
