My New Year’s Eve thoughts

I have always loved New Years. I love the thought of having a clean slate, a new start, an open book to start the year off.  In the last several years we’ve celebrated the New Year with our dear friends that live next door to us, and we will be doing the same, this year.

I don’t do resolutions, but more so set mini-goals for myself.  Last year I wanted to de-clutter my life, both in material items as well as spiritually.  I was tired of being weighed down, and I can honestly say in this last year while I haven’t purged as many material items  as I’d like , I have definitely let go of some internal and external demons I’d hung on to for far too long.  My second goal of running a sub-2 half marathon was ALMOST achieved, but I was 11 seconds too slow.  LOL, I can only laugh at it now.  I’ll get it, eventually.

This New  Year’s is a little different, however.  I finally admitted to myself, and my Mom last night via text, that I am dreading the New Year.  I suppose because it’s a reminder that my husband leaves in just a couple months, and that next New Years he won’t be here with us physically.  And I’ve never NOT celebrated the New year without him since we’ve been married.  And that breaks my heart, just a little more.

I do have an interview for a Nanny on Sunday, and the bonus is that she does light housekeeping.  I pray we like her, and that she likes us, because this would be a huge weight lifted off my shoulders despite the dent it’ll cause to my pocket book.

With that, I wish you all a very Happy New Year!!!!  Do you have goals or resolutions?  How do you celebrate?


Cheers! And remember, #keepmovinforward

  1. I love New Years. And new months. And Sundays hahah all for the same reason- I love new starts! I’m not very good at keeping New Years resolutions, but random goals are good too! We’re starting the new year off with a 5 miler race in the morning 😊

  4. When I read the first two sentences of this blog post, it could have been as if I’d written it myself – I feel exactly that way. Sorry to hear that this New Year isn’t quite as full of hope and promise for you as previous ones :o(

    Good luck with your goals this year!

  7. Happy New Year’s! I know you’re not terribly excited for 2016, but I pray it will be a great and QUICK year for you.

    I don’t do resolutions, but I do make goals. My main goal for 2016 is to run 2,016 miles.


  8. Michelle !! Happy new year !! 🙂
    I can’t imagine how hard it is to miss someone that close to you on such an event, my brother is in the military and last year he wasn’t with us on both Christmas Eve and NYE. Heartbreaking… truly !
    I wish you and your family a year filled with happiness and joy!! Enjoy every part of it. 🙂


  9. I don’t make any New Years resolutions. If you don’t make any, you can break them:) I always feel that would be setting myself up for disappointment, not being able to fulfill a goal that I try to set for myself. I hope this year can bring you much joy even if you can’t spend it w hubs. You have plenty of friends and family that will help you get thru:)
