I wish I had something profound to offer this first day of 2011 but I don’t. Never fear, there are a thousand ideas running through my head and as usual I am currently frozen in them. Instead, I am sitting and mindlessly indulging in a few moments of the new Oprah Winfrey Network (it’s like a drug people!) before a shower. I am thrilled with the possibilities. I am still a little tired from the struggle and growth of 2010** but mostly I am ready for new things. I will share more later, perhaps after a much needed shower. But rest assured, there is more soul baring, new business, finances, parenting, cooking, and of course-the quest to not stay fat. All these things are ahead and when I think of that how can I feel anything but…lucky.
The possibilities are endless for my little Circus. I’m taking today to dwell in them.
Tomorrow, I will begin the work of realizing them.
I wish the same for you. Happy New Year.
**In a little twist, The Husband and I arrived home last night from a NYE party to find in our mailbox the official letter releasing us from the Maryland house. The “deal” happened in November, but all the legal details were wrapped up 12/31/2010.We read the letters (yes, we each get our own) that basically said, “Now you can move on and begin officially rebuilding your lives” at 11:55pm. Talk about going out with a bang.
