Happy New Year - 2012!!!

Hard to imagine that another year has gone by!

And where has CJ been?  Good question! Been super busy.  Lil Diva was involved in several shows since the beginning of the school year.  She has been having so much fun, building her performance resume, but truth be told, it has been exhausting on this Mom.  Lil Man doesn't stay behind either.  He has been actively auditioning and getting rolls under his belt too.  What can I say, a home filled with thespians!  LOL

What's New?

I have officially become a Pinhead!  *A name my friend, Jenn's husband, has for those afflicted with the love for the website, Pinterest.*  I've known about it for quite sometime, but have never quite sat down to tinker on it.  (Of course not, with these two needing chauffeuring!)  Wow, the wonderful world that has opened up for me.  So many ideas, recipes, photography to admire.  I carve out time for "daily pinning".  Can't believe I haven't "discovered" it earlier.

As for the New Year Ahead.....

I didn't make any New Year's resolutions..... I couldn't think of any good ones.  I always resolve to eat more fruits and veggies *although that is difficult when I have a family filled of non-fruit & veggie eaters*, drink plenty of water, keep stress to a minimum, meditate, take "me" time....but I didn't want to categorize that as new years resolutions per say.  I think those are lifestyle changes I have had for the past few years, and it is never ending.  Although now as I am writing this I can think of one.  To be able to say No, and not feel guilty about it.  To not allow certain loved ones to work "that" nerve.  I hate the depleted, exhausted feeling I feel afterwards when I know I have let them crawl under my skin.  And then I become frustrated with myself for not heeding to warning signs and stop the conversation before they get me there.  Because it does take a bit for me to get there.  *SIGH*

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and New Year!  My family and I did, and I look forward to sharing my "lil thoughts" in 2012!


  1. Sometimes I think resolutions cause more stress. Perhaps you couldn't think of any because your life is already pretty darn good :) Happy New Year!

  2. Have a wonderful 2012 pinhead! I'm addicted to Pinterest too! =)
