Farewell to 2013


Thanks to the girls over at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans I’ve got a few questions to ask myself today:

What did you accomplish in 2013 that you are proud of?
This is our second year of homeschooling and I feel that as we started our school year this fall things have really come together. We are learning and enjoying being together. 
What didn’t work for you in 2013?
Comparing myself to others or who I think I should be. I am realizing I need to just celebrate who I am and only compete against myself.  (I know, duh!)
What made you happy in 2013?
That my family and I were able to relocate to our dream location in southwest Florida.
What was your biggest challenge in 2013?
Not having a steady routine. We had too many transitions and upheavals.  A three month stay in a hotel suite with four kids, road trips, selling our home, moving, more road trips, staying with family for seven weeks, adjusting to a new town.
What happened that you need to let go of?
I have gained 10 pounds this year.  It is what is. I need to move forward and do more of what makes me awesome!
