Wolfie’s Scraps and Things

02 January 2012

Hello 2012!

Arjan and I squeezed into 2012 slowly and easily yesterday. We pretty much just had a lazy day at home with nothing much to do. I do know that both of our minds were going 90 miles a minute with all the thoughts and plans we each have for this year. I can't really say what is on his mind but I'd be willing to bet it has a lot to do with work. My mind was taken over by the nesting bug, organization and routines are at the top of my list for this year. It's going to be a positive year for us but I'm sure it will be full of changes, too.

I also know that Oma van de Rest was on both of our minds as well. Oma would have been 95 years old yesterday but sadly she passed away in the wee hours of Christmas morning. She will be missed greatly, but she wanted to go and now she is with Opa again after so very many years.

I'm not doing resolutions this year...I rarely do them anyway, but when I do I invariably fail, badly. This year I'n going to focus on my "One Little Word" which is Organize. I want to organize my life: my home, my day to day routines, our finances, our photos, all 40,000+ of them, and yes, even vacations. It's the one thing that has really been lacking in my world for the past several years and I figure it is well past time to fix that. I'm truly excited to begin organizing my way through 2012 and I can't think of a better time to start than right now!

That's a great choice for your OLW. I failed miserably at my OLW last year. It only lasted the first six months at the most. This year I think I'll just wing it. I want to increase the spiritual side of me, but I'm reluctant to write down goals that I might not attain again. We'll see.
