2018: Another Year; Another Post

Oh hey, another year….and a half has passed. Imagine that‽

Update on those 2017 resolutions:

  • Read a minimum of 1 book a month: Ummm yeah, I completely blew past that goal. I read 35 books in 2017 and am already on book 30 for 2018. Can you say, “Leisure reading is at an all-time high”‽ I am obsessed, in love, giddy about words. Why did I deprive myself for years‽ Silly me. Goodreads is my jam and 50 is my goal for the year. Fuck yeah.
  • Back to Fitness: Well, that went swimmingly for a bit. 25lbs lost…then regained. Dammit. But, I am committed and I’m no quitter. Career changes and gluttony got the best of me. It’s coming off again though. It’s uncomfortable. I’m tired. My body is protesting. This. Does. Not. Work. For. Me.
  • Be Regularly Involved in the Community: Slacking. I cannot tell a lie. Best intentions. All excuses. Too sporadic for my liking. Changing that. Signing up for something this week and am committing to 2 activities a month. Also, I have feelers out with a non-profit (two, actually), that I am wanting to get involved with. Stay the course, mama. yeah, that’s me talking to myself. (I do that… a lot.)
  • Simplify: YASSSS! I have been doing this – but there is still so much more to do. Garage: Still a shit show…. but….many other areas have been addressed. A work in progress. We are progressing. Forward motion. I’ll take it.

So, that’s the update on resolutions.

New Shiz:

Munkees: Amaze balls. Seriously, they are freaking amazing. Punky is going to be 17 (WTF?!) next month. Can I just say, “holy shit, that girl amazes me‽ ” She is so much more mature and together than I was at her age. She’s an awesome human being and I AM HER MOM!!! Lucky me. I am in constant awe of her. Srsly. Love her. So damn much. Boo: he’s still sweet as pie. Oh please, higher power, NEVER let him lose that. His heart is so big it baffles me. I love that boy. He’s one of the kindest souls I have ever met…and I made him. Wow. Mouse: Spitfire. Good lord, where did this little fireball come from‽ Smart as hell, snarky, and a force to be reckoned with. My kids are the BOMB.

Romeo: Still my rock. Still the love of my life.. Life is pretty damn amazing. He is my perfect partner and I am so grateful he is in my world.

I plan to write more. I say this every year and I really, truly hope I mean it this time. If not, well…see you next year! 😛

Our Summer vacation this year was a 10 day RV road trip through California, Oregon, & Washington. WOW. Yes. Do this. Photos are a few highlights from our trip.

Peace and chicken grease. Love and light to all who read this (myself especially).

2018 has been an incredible year and it’s only going to get better.
