Happy New Year to you!
I had a quiet New Year’s Eve, involving exactly zero partying, which is exactly how I like it. 😉
There was also zero staying-up-until-midnight, which again, is exactly how I like it. Midnight and I are not friends.
I went for a walk by the water, and when I got home, I decided to clean out my messy carport.
Then I randomly decided to vacuum out and wipe down the inside of my van, since like most other things in my life, it had gotten a little messy over the semester.
In so doing, I took out the second-hand bookshelf that had been riding in my car for a few weeks.
And then I was like, “Hmmm, well, I do already have the extension cords out. Maybe I should just go ahead and sand the bookshelf.”
So I did, and after I dusted it off, Zoe helped me bring it inside, where I primed and painted it.
And it’s almost done, except I need some caulk for the gaps (always necessary with white paint!).
And also I am a little nervous that I’m going to run out of my Cloud White paint right before I’m done with the bookshelf. There’s not a lot left in my bucket.
I know New Year’s Day is a classic time to be setting goals, but honestly, I don’t have any fresh new goals.
Mainly, my hope is to keep up the status quo, doing things like:
- passing nursing school
- maintaining my exercise habits
- maintaining my eating habits
- maintaining my sleeping habits
- maintaining my relationships with my kids
- maintaining my blog
If I can manage to keep all of that going in this nursing-school phase of life, I’ll be content.
My therapist suggested that I look back over the last year and take stock of what I have accomplished and how I have grown, so maybe that’s a good assignment for today, since I’m not in a goal-setting mode. 🙂
