Start the New Year Off Right

Here is a list of things I hoped to accomplish this week in order start the New Year off on the right foot:

  1. Clean my whole house top to bottom 
  2. Take down my Christmas decorations
  3. Get everyone into bed earlier so we are fresh and ready to go back to school 
  4. Spend some time with my sister who is here from Chicago, including a fab girl's night out to go eat my favorite beignets
  5. Cook a splendidly delicious breakfast for my sister and my family every morning because deep down I feel like there is a June Cleaver part of me that wants to make waffles and homemade buttermilk syrup at six-thirty in the morning.
  6. Eat healthier...except for number four...oh, and number five on above list. What I'm actually trying to say is that this was the week I planned to stop eating peppermint bark for breakfast.
In reality my Start the New Year Off Right list change a little bit and I did this instead:

In case you are wondering, I win the trophy for the human who has puked the most times this week and probably the most times in her thirty-two years of life. There is hardly a restaurant or commercial establishment that hasn't seen my head in its toilet bowl at some point and I consider this quite a feat. Especially since I do not drink alcohol or use substances of any sort, and I'm decidedly not bulimic.

So, here I am ringing in the New Year from my couch with the irritating glow of Christmas lights reminding me every ten seconds that there is a whole list of things I wanted to do this week, but instead I'm watching Friends re-runs and trying not to remember all the extended family members who will be arriving on my doorstep any moment. Oh well, it's not a family reunion if someone isn't puking and leaving all the other mothers feeling hysterical with worry that their family will be next. 

Happy New Year!
