Before I include the kids comments I want to declare my own intentions and things to look forward to in the new year. In looking back at the last year I want to spend less time focused on school and work and more on having a good time with the family. I can't wait till our family reunion in Newfoundland this summer, the trip should be great and an amazing chance for the kids to meet family they don't ever see. I need to trust my gut more and when I don't think things are right with the kids at school I need to pursue it and stick with it and trust that when I am concerned I should be and need help and to find it. I intend to spend a little time find time for myself and getting a better balance between family and me. There are just those days and weeks and months that it has been all kids all the time and I think we all need a little more breathing room. My house still isn't clean but I am not going to make myself crazy, I always figure I have until Chinese New Year to have it deep cleaned and it will or won't get done and I won't make myself crazy either way. I hope everyone has a happy and safe year with more ups than downs and more laughs than tears.
