To Live Well

I am so thankful for Sharman, she shared was SO sweet and kind today, we had tea and she fed my girls lunch and told me "Girl, what you need is not a treadmill but some sleep!" I am so thankful for her friendship. She's a little older than me but we are still both at the "babies" stage of life and her wisdom has helped me tremendously.
I've been thinking about my New Year's Resolutions, especially the one about sleeping, eating & exercising better, I haven't put much energy towards making that a reality. I've not taken a naps regularly since Katie-Abigail was born, and I feel it.
I feel scattered and exhausted, at the edge of tears. Please- don't feel sorry for me. I am a mom! It's hard, but wonderful. I wouldn't trade this season of my life for the world - though I wouldn't want to be stuck here either. I cherish these baby days, though I struggle to find a place for everything in my life - a place for my relationships, for my tasks, for my hobbies, for me. Life is beginning to rush by at such a fast pace! I feel as though the selfishness is being beaten out of me, but it's a resilient buggar.
Anyway, my goals: for the next three months 1. To catch up on sleep 2. To stay on top of dishes (so Daniel will know I'm not slacking) and 3.To be purposeful about meditation.
