I am going to stay loyal this year to my Monday's post of little things that matter to me - things that might have happened the week before that I am grateful for or just little things that I need to open my eyes a bitter wider and recognize. As I read a lot of the opening new year blog posts, many people have chosen one word to apply to their year..
to name a few.
I am not sure I can choose JUST one word - I am not organized enough to get to just one word. So going back to my new year's post of being a SUPER MOM and not SUPERMOM, my one word will be
LET GO- SLOW DOWN- CALM
does that work?
So with that in mind, here are my little things of the week that mattered the most...
1. I've now played Candy Land with the girls 4 times in two days - just as the Hasbro wording says on the side of the box "when its time for us, nothing else matters." I think Hasbro stole those words right out of my girls' mouths.
2. We've had quality neighborhood time this past week -princess new years eve party, hanging out with neighbors to ring in the new year (well, we toasted at 9pm, 12 am New York time when the ball dropped that still counts, right?) and "scootering" with all the kids and their scooters and bikes in the cul-de-sac
3. Although a bit chaotic because of the computer freezing on us, we used the web cam with my parents and Grandma on new Year's Day - something we fail to do often enough -Learning SKYPE is a goal of mine this week! How great is was to see their faces, even if they were frozen in time for a bit.
4. a fresh start, a new year, a new white calendar to follow...welcome 2010. a chance to soak in these little moments for another year!
now off to that skype website so I don't make a liar out of myself...
