How to Tell if Someone Has Had a Long Day #783

They tell their child's talking toy to "Go die in a hole".

Their kid probably has nappy rash, is teething, and is finally in bed after whinging the day away. You should probably bring them chocolate and coffee. ASAP.

Another Year is Over; A New Year Has Begun

2012 was a great year. We announced my pregnancy in February (after 3 months of keeping it quiet), I was in my friend's wedding at the start of August (at 37 weeks pregnant), I had a beautiful baby boy named Daniel Isaiah on August 31st, I've spent 4 wonderful months being a mum, the last 4 months have been interesting as I learn to juggle a baby, a house, and my husband, the house has definitely suffered ;-)

We have been so blessed this past year, and I am looking forward to this new year with anticipation! I can't wait to see what God has in store for us! Especially for me :-)

I like to make attainable resolutions each year, but normally I don't have a record of the resolutions that I've made. So this year, I've decided to write it down on here, so that I can come back when I need reminding. I've tried to keep them simple, so that I don't forget or get too overwhelmed.

My Resolutions for 2013:
- Start & finish a Bible Reading plan on my phone app. And then start another one.
- Stay off of my phone & computer whilst Daniel is awake.
- Take a photo every day. Upload them all to the computer periodically, so that I don't lose them.

My reasons for these resolutions are as follows:
-I want to grow closer to God & have regular quiet times, but I won't do that if I set a general goal of 'grow closer to God'. Therefore, I will complete Bible Reading plans in order to have short-term goals to complete.

- I find myself turning to my phone far too often just to 'quickly check Facebook' or 'quickly check my email' and then I get stuck on there and miss out on the precious time with Daniel. I want to be fully present in the moment & enjoy the time with him without needing to be on my phone. However, I am allowed to be on my phone while I'm breastfeeding :-)

- I want to be able to look back & see what's gone on this year. I want to have photo albums to look through and say "Remember when this happened?".

Bring on 2013!!!
