Christmas and Resolutions

I hope everyone had a great Christmas; our family did, though it was quiet, as my oldest daughter could not get there because of the weather. I had never before realized what a cleaning junkie she can be, normally we have an overly organized Christmas, but this year, we didn’t even have a trash bag when gifts were being unwrapped and it took me most of the day to get the boxes out to the recycling bin. The house is still a wreck. I guess DD2 and I are slobs, but I don’t think I will laugh at her for cleaning any more. lolol

It was weird to have only the three of us this year, the Hubster, DD2 and me. It made the cooking load lighter and the house quieter.

I know many people are planning for the New Year, getting ready with their knitting projects and resolutions; however, I have decided not to make resolutions this year. I rarely keep them longer than a week, and springtime is easier for me to start a resolution. IMHO, spring should be the start of the New Year, not the in January (yuck the winter). The cold and the dark are not conducive for making a plan and following through for me at least. What about you, do you have huge numbers of resolutions??
