Weekly Wrap Up..

I'm trying to get back into the swing of blogging frequently. I mean... it seems a waste of space to just do it every now and then, right?

So... here are a few things I learned this week:

My addiction to Pinterest is still going strong - and I'm not alone. Now I'm not only pinning things for myself, but I'm pinning things for other people too. Of course, I feel like a drug dealer too because I keep inviting others to join..... But now I'm wondering: Is there some way I can turn this addiction into a career? Because I *know* I could be a professional pinner. (And the money earned would support all the wardrobe ideas I find for myself while I'm working...)

You can't keep a good girl down. Despite my feelings being hurt - and the fallout that came with that in my head/heart, I am back to normal. I'm stronger and more sure than ever that life is too short to let negativity steal your sunshine. Letting go is sometimes the best way to combat that type of let down.  (Thanks to all of those who were concerned about my feelings too, by the way.)

Not all friends are built the same. This is sort of a followup to the one above. But it speaks for itself. ;)

My kids are growing up too fast. Sadie has been with her cousin at my mom's house for TOO long! They stopped by to visit me the other day, and I swear she's grown 2 inches. And Gracey has become a young lady instead of a little girl. The way her clothes fit and she primps in the bathroom as well as her responsibility level just since last month shows me that she's really going to grow up and be in high school next year. UGH! Then there's Billy who turns 25 next weekend! Where did the time go? How did this happen?

Hitting the "reset" button is always a good thing. I personally shut down for the week between Christmas and New Year's. This has traditionally been a week off work for me - even before working in education - and I definitely think it's good for my soul. It is that time in my life that I literally hit the reset button and get myself geared up for the next phase. Sometimes I lounge around like a slug (most years I do this, actually) - and sometimes we travel and play. I'm a better person when I come out of my Christmas cocoon. I highly recommend it!

Jason Mraz is such an amazing singer. I think you ALL should download his latest song:

Happy First Week in January!

LOVE THIS! Every part of it. Feel exactly the same way. The week after Christmas is a very strange time for me as well, somewhat depressing, somewhat hopeful. Hard to explain it. But, I to tend to turn inwards and try to get inside my own head (scary).
Your children are precious inside and out and yes, the time goes entirely too fast.
Luv ya friend, THANKS! (this is Misty)
