As we wind down from the chaos that was Christmas 2017, my thoughts have begun to turn to the new year. What would I like to accomplish in 2018? How can I simplify things and try to savor the time I have with my kids (instead of flipping out about the tornado that hit our great room–for the fourth time this week)? What can we do to budget better in order to enable our family to do more of the things we dream of doing together? How can we give more and take less? How can I be better at managing paper? (I never imagined the mass quantity of paper that would enter my house on a daily basis–help!) How can we meal plan and prep in order to eat healthy, while not spending too much time in the kitchen on weeknights? I am positive and hopeful about what this year will hold. What are your hopes and resolutions for 2018?
