One Little Word 2018


It's all about ME (not)
Have you picked your One Little Word for 2018?  I have and I do not want to sound obnoxious or pretentious but my word for the year is ME.  Not me in hey, it’s all about me, but me in taking care of business, i.e., my health, my weight, paying the bills, painting the rooms, getting the kiddies rooms done once and for all, having a place for everything and everything in its place, and working on other areas of the house.  It’s about rest and hygge and making lots of special moments with family.  It’s about DOING and not talking about it (which we do a lot – talk but not do).  It's about saying no (hard from me, say no and feel guilty - gonna change that).  It’s about saving and just getting it all together.  2018 is the year of ME, really US, because my granddaughter K picked the same word and we are going to knock that word out of the park.  2018, is about US getting it together and getting it done.

Have you gotten a head-start on your 2018 word?  I am pleased to announce that K got her learner’s permit at the beginning of December.  Talk about weather conditional driving – she has driven in snow and rain, in the dark, and on the parkway.  I am so proud of her.  She will have tons of driving hours in by the time she takes her test in June.  Then we can sign the kiddies up for summer camps at the museum and the zoo and join the Y for swim and dance classes and sports.  K can get them to their doctor appointments and anything else on the calendar and I won’t have to take time off to chauffer.  It’s a win-win.

I have begun writing out the goals I want to achieve in 2018 and the steps to achieve them.  I am ready for this new year (not that I want myself or the kiddies to get older), but for the promises and challenges it brings.

Sooooooooooooooooo, what’s YOUR ONE LITTLE WORD?

Merrily, Trish
