Oh my goodness?!? Where have I been?

I would love to say that I've been MIA because I've been working on some huge project or I have so many dinner dates with my family and friends that I just haven't had one second to update our blog. The real, honest answer, is that I've just been exhausted. For real.

Since my last post I have battled some sort of virus that parked right in my throat and chest and hung out for a week. It's been almost two weeks since all of that started and I still have a junk in my chest and nose. Ugh. 

The only fun thing I can think of that I've done since my last post is go camping. Details to come. So much fun. 

As I was looking back over my whopping seven posts from January, I decided to also take another look at my "hopes" for the new year. I wanted to see how well I've done or how much I've failed. 

Let's see...

In 2013 I hope to eat breakfast. And like it. 
I must admit, I've been doing pretty good with this. I've either been eating a waffle or yogurt, and while neither of those might be the best or most fulfilling, it's way more than I was eating.

Along the lines of eating, I hope to eat healthy or at least learn to eat better portions. 

This is a work in progress and will probably always will be, but I've been doing okay. 

I hope to soak in every single second with my baby girl, who's really not so much a baby. 

With the exclusion of my "sick days" I've been doing pretty good with this. How could I not? It's so easy and at the top of my list.

I hope to blog more

Ha, ha, ha, ha. Yeah. You all see how that's been going.

I hope that when my Daddy returns later this month to have his PSA level checked again,his levels will have decreased significantly. 

SUCCESS. My daddy returned to have his levels checked again and they had dropped significantly. He still has cancer, but the hormones he's taking have stopped the growth from this point forward. He will start radiation in March. 

I hope to find inner peace with whatever the new year holds.
Work in progress, but making progress.

I hope to have more date nights with my one and only. 

A few weekends ago my parents kept MK for us and we had several date nights. LOVE. 

I hope to start some sort of exercise. 

I've been doing Zumba. 

I hope to find a church that we really enjoy. 

Work in progress.

I hope to re-do our family room. 
Not yet. Too many ideas and just can't narrow anything down.

I hope to budget our money better. 

We are doing really well with this. I'm proud of us.

I hope to just enjoy every day. 
Not really working out. I long for the weekends and down time, therefore, I rush the week days. Really need to work on this.

Overall, I guess I'm doing okay. The bottom line is, I'm making progress. And besides, it just the start of February. I'm just getting started.
