I went to bed at 9:30, what did you do? Now it is true that New Year's is not my favorite holiday. In fact, it's pretty safe to say that I think it's a pointless holiday. However, I normally stay up until the appointed time, but this year Dan was on over-nights again (I really thought he was done with these at the beginning of the school year...oh well) and Kember and I were sick. My bed just looked so appealing that I couldn't resist. I mean, if Heavenly Father has blessed me with a two month old that will sleep through the night (amazing, I know...trust me, my other two were up every two hours until 6-9 months) shouldn't I take advantage of that fact? Yes, I think so.
After being a rotten grouch all day today (all week actually, I'm not a nice sick person) my kids put me in the best mood ever...and it was such a simple thing. We were sitting down to dinner (which I was not happy about having to make, even if it was mac and cheese with peas...I mean, how easy can you get...and healthy :) Anyway, I asked who wanted to say the prayer and both said, "I do, I do!" Great. So I told Kember that she could help Caden say the prayer. I can't remember what they said, and really, I don't think that it was anything amazing, but really, it melted my heart and put a smile on my face. They really are precious, and I really am blessed. It's time to start being more optimistic. I guess that is what is good about the new years...there is a point to it after all. So, my goal for the new year...To be more optimistic.
