Last year I publicized my resolutions, and if I try really hard to remember all of them I can remember a quarter. Some I successfully completed, others I successfully avoided. This year, there will be no resolutions, but rather a promise.
This is the year of “now”. I will not vow to stop procrastinating…that is simply not in my nature, but I will say that this will be the year of many upheavals, changes in habits, new perspectives on life. Now. There is no better time, for tomorrow may never come. These are not resolutions, but rather skills that I want to learn in the coming year: soap-making, cheese-making, chicken-raising….the “use”.
We participated in the JCI Sponsored Holiday Parade back in….November. ha. The weather was beyond perfect, the girls were great, but wow was that a frantic walk / run for the better part of a mile ish. The marching band behind us was constantly encroaching on our territory and poor Marcia almost got ran over a few times! We brought along the wagon thinking that the girls would sit in there as one of us pulled and handed out candy. Wrong assumption. Zoey wanted to be held by me….Violet wanted to be held by me. Needless to say, my arms were sore for days. The crowd was great, with lovely smiling faces of parents and children with their hands outstretched. It was a fun experience, however I’m not sure we’d do it again, at least not until the girls are older.
