New Year's Eve may be one of my favorite holidays. Christmas is great with all the gifts and everything, but on New Years, you get the chance to start completely fresh in the new year, whilst (love that word...did I use it correctly?) celebrating for the year that past. It's the feeling of accomplishment and anticipation all rolled into one night.
Before Olivia, I would ring in the new year in downtown Boston, in a crowded bar, with a few of our friends and lots of alcohol. January 1st was never a very good day for me.....as most of it was spent with a hangover. The last few years, we've spent the night at home, relaxing, watching tv, and just having a good time with friends. No hangover. Thank you Olivia for coming into my life and stopping me from being hungover on the first day of every year :)
Another thing that I like about New Years is the resolutions. I know lots of people say that they don't keep them.....but I like the idea of being introspective and trying to better yourself. It's always nice to take a long look at yourself and see what needs changing. So, of course.....I've come up with a few resolutions of my own.
1. Take better care of myself
Since Olivia's been around I've made every excuse in the book not to exercise, eat right or drink enough water. Lately, I have even been sleeping in my clothes and not washing my face or teeth before bed. It's just bad. I put EVERY single ounce of energy I have into Olivia. I need to make sure I take care of myself at least as much as I take care of her......so that I can be around for her for a good long time.
2. Go to the Dentist
I HATE the dentist. Hate hate hate. I haven't been since before I was pregnant....which is just stupid. I pay for dental insurance monthly...and eventually I'm going to have a little girl that is going to need to go to the dentist. I need to be a good example. Right?
3. Take more time do hobbies....and blog.
We'll see how it goes!!
