Have a Safe and Happy New Year

We are celebrating at home this year as we normally do. Stuffed mushrooms, cheese sticks, pizza, little smokies, jalapeno peppers, several chips and dips and more. We have the Wii set up and movies to watch.

I asked the girls if they were making any New Years Resolutions, and they all said no. I have heard several people say they aren't as it is too hard. Maybe that means they are setting their goals to high. Instead of vowing to loose 50 pounds next year, make your goal to loose 20 or 25, or to simply walk for 30 minutes a day, instead of vowing to keep a spotless house, make it your goal to deep clean one room of your home every week or two weeks. Then, reward yourself when you do well.

The new year brings all sorts of hopes and new opportunities. But remember, you don't have to wait for a New Year for a new beginning. Every day brings a new beginning, as the old saying goes "today is the first day of the rest of your life".
