tending my livestock

"Everybody's coming back to take stock of their lives. You know what I say? Leave your livestock alone." -Minnie Driver, Gross Pointe Blank

What's on your New Year's Day agenda? Are you cleaning? Shopping? Enjoying the outdoors? Taking stock of your life in 2011?



I find myself periodically checking in over the last week at how the year has gone, so today, I'm taking a page out of every show on NPR this week and recapping the major events of my year on the blog:
I noticed some themes popping up:

Oh, and did you come around here when I did NaBloPoMo in November, that thing where you post every day in a month? Well hold onto your butts because I'm doing it again this month! I'll post every day in January and tell of my attempt to live frugally during my 23-Day Frugal Living Challenge, which starts on the 6th.

Will you join me? I'd love to share more good times with you in 2012. Thanks for riding the roller coaster of 2011 with me. You made my first year as a stay-at-home Boston mom so enjoyable, and I'm looking forward to another topsy turvy year.

In honor of my besties who are spending today in gay Paris...
Bon Annee!

What a fantastic post! This is the post I dreamed about writing...I'm glad you got it done! And I love the new blog name! Thanks for your words of encouragement! I'm joining you again for another month of NaBloPoMo and I'm going to do the Frugal Challenge as well! It should be quite a month! Happy New Year!

Great, Emily! I'm pleased you like the new blog name and that we'll get to do NaBloPoMo and the frugal challenge together. We can motivate each other to complete them. Quite a month indeed!
