We did however enjoy ourselves over these past few weeks. Basking in glory of off-the-grid life. Dragging throughout the house in pyjamas for days. Eating whatever, whenever we got around to it. Unemailed, uncellphoned...unplugged. And although it felt carefree while it lasted, as we routine ourselves back to reality, it now feels a bit uneasy.
You should know I was "that girl" who felt anxiously ill if I missed more then two consecutive days of school and would beg my parents to pick up my homework. The shame of falling behind incomprehensible.
I digress...each year I welcome the New Year with a laundry list of take-on-the-world to do's. How to better myself, better our lives, better the world one volunteer project at a time. For a few weeks this Go-Go-Alissa emerges...until I either exhaust myself or come to the conclusion that before I can "run the marathon" I first need to "make it to the gym". That all said, it's a good time to do some soul searching and tackle whatever it is dangling just out of our reach.
So here we are. Back in the driver's seat. Back to work, back to life, back to multiple loads of laundry...cloth diapers and all. Ready to take on 2011 with a refreshed on-your-mark zealousness for life.
How bout you? Any goals this year? Holidays treat you well? Deciding to buy into the world of jeggings this 2011 once and for all? Would love to hear from you.
Happy New Years from ours to yours - ABCD
