Happy New Year!

Thursday, January 1, 2015

The New Year is here and it is time to put our resolutions into action. Well, tomorrow anyway. 

For me, today is all about eating some pork and sauerkraut (which is a PA Dutch/German tradition supposedly to bring good luck for the year) and trying to recover from the night before. 

Each year seems to go by quicker than the last and leaves you thinking where the hell did the time go. 

Which leads me to my New Year's resolution:

Make the most of my time off.
More often than not my days off consist of lounging at home trying to catch up on any TV shows that I might have missed, cleaning (although my husband may say otherwise), and running errands. Boring, right?!?

I am not one of the lucky work folks who get to have two days off in a row and I must work every Sunday. This leaves me feeling a bit slighted at times and I tend to miss out on a few social gatherings (good thing I love what I do). 

I am going to make it a point to try/visit something/someplace new at least once a week. I stumbled upon this quote recently on Pinterest and it really spoke to me. It led me to the realization that I better get living and stop putting so many things off.

"You have exactly one life in which to do everything you'll ever do. Act accordingly."

With that, I wish everyone a very Happy New Year. May this year be even better than the last. 

Goodbye, 2014.
