Happy New Year to YOU!!
Growing up New Year's Eve was always special. My parents would let us stay up, we'd watch movies, fill out our brand new calendars with the family birthdays, and head out to bang on pots and pans in our front yard when New York celebrated (9 pm our time).
With my boys we try to do that same type of thing - minus the pots and pans because now as an adult I would be so embarrassed about my kids annoying the neighbors. Of course they don't mind annoying us with setting off fireworks at the "real" midnight... yes... really... my dog LOVES it when they do that (GRRR).
Anyway - Farley is hosting her monthly Currently and I want to link up. I know, I know... so many linky parties lately! Really though, until I'm back in school on Wednesday there really isn't anything school related to talk about, and I want to talk to someone.
Listening - to complete quiet. It's so peaceful right now I could fall asleep. Maybe I should be sleeping... My boys are with my husband in the garage designing/building/painting their Pinewood Derby cars. They joined Cub Scouts this past fall and this is one of the big deals of the year. I'm supposed to be making dinner at the moment, but instead I'm sitting here talking to you. :) Priorities!
Loving - My Life - everything about it. I'm blessed.
Thinking - Yes, there is a big mess behind my computer chair all over the Family Room floor that perhaps I should be cleaning up... but I'm not, and I'm okay with it.
Wanting - to finish my book. I've downloaded so many free books on my Kindle over break (Pixel of Ink, Inspired Reads, Amazon Free Kindle Books), and I just keep averaging 1 - 2 days per book. It's been a wonderful vacation of staying up late reading.
Needing - to grade those assessments I brought home. I brought an entire bag of stuff that I still haven't touched yet. I've done a lot and created a bunch for school - so it all evens out, right?!?
One Little Word - Content. I am content. I am at peace. I am happy with my life. Of course there are things I would love to modify (clothes size being one), but overall I am content with my life.
