So it's a new year, time to refresh from all the craziness of the holidays. I, for one, have had it! I spend the month of December stressed out of my mind and needing a Valium just to get through the day. It was not a pretty sight and in the middle of all that I lost sight of some very important things.
I forgot to stop and enjoy that time with my family. Instead of being restless and frantic, I should have been savoring those priceless moments. I know I will regret that time I was more worried about what gifts to buy than what memories I made.
But January has rolled around and it's time to get back on the horse. So with that thought in mind, my husband and I are starting our own experiment. A "get back to ourselves" kind of thing. For the next two weeks, when the kids go to bed, we are turning off the television. *OUCH* It kinda hurts, but in that, "It will be good for us." way. We will have more time to read, talk, concentrate on other things. (I am pretty sure he thinks he's going to get more action because I am just going to get so bored and give in out of default.)
So last night was our first night. It started off good. I grabbed the computer. (Yeah, score one for me!) He spend 10 minutes doing something and then the rest of the night staring at the TV trying to turn it on with his eyes. Now I don't fault the guy, I would have done the same thing too if he had the computer, but he didn't so "Nana nana boo boo!"
Thank goodness tonight I will be out with friends and not care, but I am already considering what tomorrow night will be like. I will keep you posted. I am hoping at the end of this I should be skinnier, smarter, and more beautiful.... or at least get a book read and one good conversation with my husband that doesn't involve one of us yelling at small children.
