Welcome 2009 and happy new year to everyone! It has been about two months since I last blogged. How time flies! We are now proud parents of a bouncing baby boy (and a talkative curious little girl)! We are so blessed. With the new addition, I hardly had the time (or the mind) to make any presents this holiday season. Actually, in truth I picked up a book (Twilight by Susan Meyer) late December (after Christmas Day) and have been so hooked on the Twilight Saga - Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn - that I have been putting off finishing my projects that I started early December. I should be done with the last book, Breaking Dawn, by tonight or this afternoon.
One of the projects I am done with is the calendar project (I will post the pictures soon)- just need to tie them with ribbons. It wasn't too hard to do once I figured out the paper color combinations and the paper dimensions. That's always the hardest part, isn't it? I still need to bake some cookies and also finish the paper bag project (which I haven't started at all). Hopefully I can get it all done soon.
What's my new year's resolution? I was so into finish reading those books that I really did not make any list. I seem to follow similar pattern at the end of each year. One year it was C.S. Lewis' "The Witch, the Lion, and the Wardrobe" series, another year the Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling, then the Notebook by Nicolas Sparks. I can't remember titles of other books but I seem to always find time to read at the end of the year. Must be the cold weather. I just love reading all cuddled up in my blanket.
Back to my new year's resolution. I know what I wanted to do this year more than any thing else. Well, it's more like what needed to do this year. Yes, more than anything else I needed to get back on the treadmill (and also start lifting) again from Day 1 of 2009 (for more energy and to get back into shape - I do not have a single pants or shorts I can fit into. I am still wearing my maternity pants). Well, I have not been on the treadmill yet. I need to devote at least five days of the week to get back into shape but already four days have gone by and I have not been on the treadmill (Oh, it's my birthday today) once. Exercising is a habit so I just need to put myself on a routine although, it might be hard to do with two kids at home. Well, there always a way when there is a will. I just have to be creative.
