January 1, 2014

Well, it's here. The Year of Nothing New. I went ahead and purchased my blog book this morning so that it would be out of the way and I can truly feel like I'm doing this.

We went to Misty and Thomas' house last night for New Year's Eve. It was a lot of fun. We got home at eleven but I forced myself to stay awake until midnight. Then I was asleep by 12:01.

We start the mornings with breakfast, coffee, and the classical music station. But before you can say I Love Bach, Eily has turned on River Dance and is tapping her feet silly in the living room.
I'm gong to be sad when the girls go back to school.

Aunt Abby gave the girls some play-doh for Christmas and our dining room table has been Play-Doh central for two days. I've never been good about leaving something like that out and about so I'm a little bit proud of myself for staying calm, despite the mess. I mean, it's not a total mess. We clean it up each night but all the equipment stays on the table.

Jason and I are going to have electronic-free Sundays for a while. No email. No texting. No browsing. Yes reading. Yes bonding. Yes relaxing.  Join us if you like. I bet neither of us will regret it.

I love the idea of electronic-free Sundays! I might be doing that one around here. Thanks for the idea! Can't wait to read more about your year.

I like electronic free Sundays! I will have to make an exception for calling my Daddy on Sunday evenings...that's our time to visit.

Good luck with the resolution and the electronic free Sundays! I think both are great ideas. I enjoyed our visit!

So the way you started your "buy nothing new" year was by buying something new?

Rebekah Sacran said...

Yep, pretty much. It was on my exception list but I got it out of the way as soon as possible.
