Happy New Year!

Here's wishing you an awesome 2014!  I hope everyone had a great NYE.  I know I did.  Here's how I spent mine:
Yup, the kids and I put our jammies on at like 8 o'clock because I was fully expecting me someone to fall asleep on the couch way before midnight. But I told the kids I'd let them try to stay up until midnight anyway.  Imagine my surprise when the ball dropped and both kids were still up.  Big man lasted until 12:03 and my little lady reluctantly hit the hay at 12:20 and took no more than four minutes before arriving in dream land.

2013 was an amazing year for me. I finally feel like I'm moving toward my goals and I actually accomplished some important ones.  I managed to get a job, go back to school, and spent some quality time with my babies.  Maybe when I say it like that it doesn't sound so huge, but as a single mom who was a stay at home mom for a few years after leaving a career that I was finding largely unfulfilling, looking for a new unrelated job without a whole lot of school in the field (I do have a couple degrees but that was for career attempt number one), no related experience, and even no unrelated experience in years, my job hunt was beginning to feel like there would never be a light at the end of the tunnel.  It was emotionally draining.  I was getting so incredibly frustrating and depressing.  It took me almost two years to even get someone to let me volunteer! But thank goodness I kept going.  I could not be happier with the job I have, the people I work with, the things I learn and so on and so on.  So with all of my goal-getting progress in 2013, 2014 can only get better!  

So instead of coming up with a resolution, instead I have a lost of goals to accomplish this year:

1. Get steadier job (mine is a temp position and may be ending shortly)
2. Find a new place to live
3. Get out of debt (except student loans - those will take a while)
4. As always, I hope to use my time to better myself intellectually, professionally, and create a fun, friendly, and happy environment full of good memories for my children.  I want to be the best super-est mom I can be!  (And yes, even the super-est of moms are allowed to make up a word every once in a while.)

Happy New Year!
Are you coming up with any goals or resolutions?
