New Year, New You

Today is New Years, Happy New Year to everyone out there.
This year sure was different from past ones for us. But all in a good way.
I remember several years ago being incredibly unhappy and feeling the need to ditch everything and start over from scratch. All vestiges of that life seem to be gone now, finally. While my lifeplan I made, isn't exactly what I'm doing now, it is a version of that.
This year my resolutions are going to be much simpler.
1)write down all the recipes I make up in my blog. That way I can make them again later, unlike before.
2)Stop breastfeeding at some point. I figure this'll resolve itself since I've basically given myself till Sasha is 1 1/2 years old with this one. Really, I want my old boobs back. This 34D thing stinks. They're too big.
3) Once I stop breastfeeding, rejoin Weight Watchers. I tried it earlier and--even with the extra points--my milk kept drying up and I had frequent dizzy spells. My goal is to be in BETTER shape than I was pre-baby. Actually, the body I had when my life was a mess is what I want. I'm in very similar shape to what I was just before I got pregnant right now. It's not that great.
4) Send one completed manuscript out to publishers. Even if it is "Naughty Puppy". It's something.

Our celebration was quite tame. We ordered pizzas and drank alcohol-removed champagne. Sasha passed out by 7:45 and slept 12 hours straight. We were in bed by 11.

Happy New Year!

Sasha slept 12 hours straight??? That is a nice way to start the new year! I wish we were as lucky.

Good resolutions! I hope 2008 is a great year for you.
