What did you do on New Year's day? #NaBloPoMo Day 1

A long, long time ago, in a different land and a different me, I lived in a very large house and pretended to have a happy marriage and the perfect family. Were things perfect you ask? NO! They were far from perfect, in fact I was really living the all-American horror story.


Fast forward twenty some off years. I am a different me, living in a different state inside a teeny tiny trailer. I know my family is far from perfect, but you know what? I am much happier. I don't have to pretend anymore.

What does this have to do with what I did on New Year's day? Well it's about reflection. That is what I did on New Year's day. I reflected on my past and I am actually looking forward to my future! What did you do?

I'm glad you are happy! Perfect families don't exist, and I'm glad you have figured that out! :)

On New Year's Day, we just went to church and then hung out as a family. What better way to celebrate?

We had a very lazy new year's day... and it was a terrific way to start a new year.

AMEN!! I did a lot of reflecting, too. That's one of the best parts about beginning a new year!

Amen! I did some reflecting too. But I'm happy now, and I think I'll spend the year working to keep it that way! Here's to finding oneself in a better place! :)

I spent NYE w/ my favorite guy, cooked, pigged out a little and watched all the sports we could possibly ingest in a 24hour period. Bliss...
