Christmas Is Over.. Out With The Old, In With The New.

I have already taken down the decorations, I am not too sure why but I wasn't really feeling Christmas this year. I didn't do a single drop of Christmas baking either (thank you Safeway for your baking platters) I could have just done without it this year.

The actual day was delightful, I spent the afternoon and night with the kids. I got an entire week off with them too, which was fantastic! Now we are getting ready for Ethan's birthday tomorrow.


I haven't written much lately, to be honest I have had lots to say, but I have been a little timid and scared to write. I have been afraid of receiving another nasty message from whoever it is that sends them. I have been cautious about sharing much of anything. Not that there has been much to share...still not doing so hot with the dating thing, my pants are feeling tight after this past week of gluttony and I cant seem to sleep.
But I have decided I am sharing anyway.

I have decided whoever you are, you don't get to take away my voice. I have worked to hard to find it again. Nothing is worth losing it again.

This next year is going to be a good one. This year is going to involve a lot of goals being accomplished and I am going to write more. I am going back to what I started with, simple story telling.
2014 is going to be a great year.















I am looking forward to a new start to everything. New adventures and new laughs. I can't wait to see what is waiting for me this year!

Today:

I am grateful for a week off with my babies, we have had so much fun!

I am grateful for a clean room and organized closets.

I am grateful for a beautiful family.

Go get 'em and have a great year!

and don't let anyone silence your wonderful voice

You need to listen to all of the people who tell you what a great job you're doing, and not the one who wants to add something negative. Life is too short to let yourself be swayed by that.

I look forward to your posts, and whatever you have in store for us in the new year.

Keep up the good fight! ;)

I love hearing your voice Joelle, don't let any negative nelly take it away.

Always remember that life is an adventure and sometimes it doesn't always go the direction we would like but we must continue to move forward, not look back and become better stronger people.

You will always have friends and family that will stand with you. Those are the only people we really need in our lives.

I hope you have a Great 2014.

Here's a great Canadian song for you. The chorus is yours. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taS_eyhNQfs

By the way, I went on a date with the aunt of the baby this group writes about in their AWESOME song "Welcome".
