Happy New Year

Here it is, a new year! I'm the only one awake here this morning and the peace and quiet is a welcome change after all the excitement of the past week or so.

This year, I decided that I'm not going to make New Year's resolutions, just some gentle persuasions or thoughts if you will. (Does that make sense?) I keep saying that maybe, just maybe, 2008 will be our year.
--Being a SAHM for so many years, has taken a toll on us financially. I'm hoping that with my new job things will finally start to turn around for us.
--Dh & I were once do-it-yourselfers, before do-it-yourselfing was even popular. We really need to start focusing on little projects around the house that we can tackle. I always loved a good project!
--Adopt a healthy lifestyle. (Notice I'm not saying "lose weight" which I've come to find, for me, is synonomous with the "kiss of death" or maybe it's the "kiss of failure", not sure which?)
--Find the joy in scrapping again. I've really lost that spark and I so need that spark again. Truly, I don't understand what happened.
I think that's about it. I'll have to edit this if I think of anything else.

Looking out my window right now, it's snowing pretty heavily. I guess Mother Nature has her own resolutions. We're going to brunch with dh's family later this morning, should be fun. I truly hope that each & every one of you has a very wonderful, very blessed 2008!

Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. HAPPY NEW YEAR to you too!! I totally hear what you are saying about the SAHM thing. I am on my 8th year and with the price of gas and heating we are starting to feel the pinch. I am thinking about picking up a part time job but it totally petrifies me to jump back into the workforce. Wishing you only the best in 2008.

  2. Fantastic suggestions. I definitely feel ya on the scrappin' one (I personally think the scrappin fairy took our magical powers away because she realized how crazy life has been lately. hehe. I have hope she will breathe new creative life back into the both of us! hehe)
    Happy New Year, my friend!
