Happy New Year from the Bad Blogger

Happy New Year - I know, it's already January 6. I'm such a bad blogger. My sister mentioned that to me over Christmas, that I'm a bad blogger. I don't blog for a week, and then I blog all at once. It's supposed to be a consistent diary, she tells me. Fine. So, make that new year's resolution #1. She also wanted to be off the distribution list - too bad.
How was everyone's New Year's Eve? We had a fabulous party at my house with lovely and trendy food, and of course, amazing friends. It'll be the last New Year's Eve without children - no, not me - but our friends are expecting in March, so that will be it!

Do you have New Year's Resolutions? I used to have them, and then I gave up on them, and now I think I'll come up with some for 2011:

1) Be a better blogger (as per above)
2) Volunteer, and help others. I had such a great time volunteering with Habitat for Humanity last year. And it really does make you feel good. Charlene and her family are in their home. So, now we wait until a new build is announced. I will also be the Run Director for the York Region Run for the Cure, so I guess I'm partially there.
3) Attempt to like yoga. I've tried yoga a few times, but never really gave it a real chance, I suppose.
4) Take more "me" days. I love these days and never get enough of them. Days to do nothing but lounge in your pjs, going shopping downtown on a weekday, spa days, random manicures or pedicures.
5) Finish our basement DIY style. I watch hours of DIY, time to put it to action. We have lots of plans for Donny's Man Cave.

I think 5 is a good start. Of course, there's always eating well and staying fit and succeeding at work, but those aren't really resolutions. That's what SHOULD be happening anyway.

And now, a look at some holiday 2010 memories:

Rex, post hair cut. He learned how to jump on the kitchen chairs! Bugger!

Merry Christmas from the Bellissimo cousins! We're like the Brady Bunch!

Happy New Year!
