2009 is here! Unfortunately, for most of today, my head has felt like a balloon that just looks like my head and is floating over my neck! We did however have a very fun time welcoming the new year. We had a (somewhat) quiet night over at my sister's house. We had gone over for a visit in the afternoon and instead stayed and had a "party!" Maliah donned her party dress and we played our new favorite game (the Wii Fit!)! Alex and I would LOVE to have one, and hey, it costs less than a year of gym fees...we seriously might be investing in one sometime soon!
As for resolutions, I'd have to say eating healthy is at the top of my list...especially given the amount of tamales, posole and chocolate chip cookies that have been part of the Pavone diet this past week! Yikes! Another one would be to spend more time getting creative with our time....looking for fun (cheap) things to do that get us out of the house. I know our time of being together for 4 days straight each week is going to be coming to an end soon and I want to fully take advantage of that. I'd also like to make it part of my routine to wake up just half an hour earlier than normal. I am always so rushed in the mornings that it throws me off. What can I say, I (we) LOVE to sleep. I have however noticed that if I'm able to get my Bible reading in before work, it sets the trajectory of the day and although I like night much more than morning, I definitely feel a difference when I'm in God's Word in the AM.
So, that's that. 2009 is alive and kicking, and I hope this cold gives me some relief tonight!
