It happened again. The calender ran out and I had to buy a new one. This New Year was unlike most in the recent past. We stayed home and partook of a family night complete with Monopoly (I won) and home made party hats. The Max was growing bored around ten o’clock and I figured he would soon fall asleep. So, I decided to create a New Year’s time capsule. We drug out the craft supplies and went to work on a new tradition I hope we continue for a long time.
Inside is a piece of paper listing all the things we liked best about 2011. Of course it began with the arrival of Lucy. Also, our trip to New Mexico was a highlight. Around a dozen events made the list of the Pilver Family’s favorites. I figure we can do this on or around New Years every year. Someday we’ll have a bunch of pieces of paper with things we loved about each year listed inside a decorated old Skippy container.
I don’t have any resolutions this year. I would like to become a minimalist in order that I have less things to clean. Mr. Pilver and The Max are both pack rats, so I doubt that will be accomplished. I know, I’ve got it! I resolve to blog every day in 2012. Let’s see how long that one lasts 😉
Happy New Year to you all!
