I'm Still Here

I didn't fall off the face of the earth!  Just off of the blogosphere and off the health wagon.

I've been running around with the kids, the holidays, my aunt in rehab (nursing home really), sick family, volunteering at school, etc... Just the norm for us women, right?  Well all of the juggling was wearing me out and something had to give, so the blog took the hit.

As wonderful as the holiday has been, I have allowed it to take over and put myself at the bottom of the list again.  I'm ready to climb my way back up the list!

Each year I come up with a word or theme for the year (as opposed to a 'resolution').  Last year my word was 'Fit'.  It meant that I wanted to fit myself back into my life; I couldn't continue to put myself last.  In an effort to commit to this theme I created this blog.  I grade myself at the end of each year as to how effective my efforts were to achieving that years theme. I will give myself a B+ this year.  The first half of the year I did great!!!  I did ok during the later summer and early spring, but haven't done well in the late fall and early winter.  I am totally ready to kick it back into gear though!!

So now my mission is to come up with a new theme for 2011 and I have just a few days.  Stay tuned for 2011's theme!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you all a happy and healthy new year!!

It's Time to make a treat to send with my boys for a playdate!

And The Winner Is...

The other night I wrote down six names on little strips of paper and asked my 5 year old son to choose a piece of paper.  His first response was to scold me for "dumping trash on his Star Wars guys", but then when I explained that he was choosing the winner of a 'contest', he was all about it.
I then had to go to this gals blog to confirm she posted every day, which I kinda already knew she had as there were a few that didn't so much as have to 'back-post' to keep up.

Without further delay, the winner of the 'I AM THANKFUL' challenge is...........

Keeping You In Stitches (aka Sandy)! over at Confessions Of A Perpetual Procrastinator.
Congratulations!!!  I'll be in touch to get your your prizes. (confession - I've been procrastinating and haven't finished the mini-book yet.)

Thank you again to all who participated!  It really has been such a blessing to read all about your blessings.
