I hope everyone had a great holiday. I admit while I planned to take a week off to focus on the family it turned into a much longer break. I’d like to say we were just having so much fun that I lost track of time. The truth is we had one of those breaks were all five of us took turn passing around various colds, coughs, and sniffles. Nothing major, I am not trying to complain. It definitely could have been worse, but it was enough to keep us home for the most part. While I am a bit bummed we didn’t do all the fun things I had hoped, we managed to have a lot of quality time together. So I’m still going to mark this holiday in the win column.
I am happy for the break. It really gave me a chance to sit back and think about what I want and my goals for the year. And I’ve been seeing all sorts of posts with people announcing their ‘word of the year.’ Okay, to be honest, has this been a thing for long? I don’t remember it being a thing. Now I am seeing it everywhere. I know I am getting old, but I didn’t think I was that old. Maybe I can blame mom brain for that. That’s a never-ending excuse, right? Right.
While I am all for goals, I am not sure I can limit myself to one word for the year. Anything I think of is either too generic or too specific. But then it hit me, I know exactly how I want to tackle 2018. Three words for me: I get to.
