Happy 2013!

New Year's Fireworks in NZ by Neil Kramer
Happy New Year, Friends!


The kids go back to school, the kids go back to school, the kids go back to school!!!!!!!!

Don't get me wrong, I have loved much of my vacation time with the kids.

We went to my in-laws house in the country, we skied (well, some of us did), we sledded, we made a snowman, we drove in a blinding snowstorm in our decidedly NON-4-wheel-drive ancient Toyota and lived to tell the tale.

We came back to the city and went to movies and museums and watched WAY too much TV and made lots of cookies and popcorn.

But enough is enough.

I am dreading the rise tomorrow morning at 0-dark-hundred and the fight with Jake to get ready and down to the bus on time, but thrilled with the idea of a few blessed hours in the day to not be the cruise director and referee so that I can GET THINGS DONE.

Really, the laundry pile is close to the ceiling.

(Don't you wish you had my exciting life?)

Also? I really need to start writing again. Real things, not just lists and round-ups. Because as much as I love to obsess reflect on the past, it's time to turn my eyes forward and look towards the horizon.

2013... what will you bring?

Hope it's good stuff for you all, my friends.


  1. Oh I know just what you mean! Two of my kids go back to school tomorrow and my college kid goes back this weekend. I'm looking forward to establishing routine once more (and getting my laundry pile down too). Good luck with your writing.

  2. Happy New Year. Lucky you, the kids going back to school now. I still have another two weeks!

  3. Here's hoping! Happy New Year! xxx


I am so sorry to have to turn word verification back on, but the spam-bots have found me - yikes!
