Tuesday January 3

Yesterday we managed to take a family photo AND a trip to the beach, fulfills my habit goal of going outside and my 2023 goal of taking a family photo.  The family photo is OK, but here are two happy kids grubbing in sand:

We spent two days at our friends house for new years as a mini-holiday.  The only downside to mini holiday is that mini child did not sleep well at all. I'm not sure if it's because she was born during Covid times (no traveling), or because we just haven't made an effort to sleep not at home, but she does not like sleeping not in her bed.  

We got home yesterday and after unpacking etc I was in bed at 8:30.  I have a 5 year journal and the entry for January 2022 was "went to bed at 8:30".  The 5 year journal is great for determining what things are cyclical.  Apparently on January 2nd I go to bed at 8:30.

I managed to get up before the kids this morning (habit goal!) and have scheduled an outside walk today.  I also made a vegetable soup yesterday for dinner (eat more fruits and vegetables) and have a fruit and veg filled grocery delivery showing up in an hour.  

I also stuck my 2021 reading list on the blog here.  I can't figure out how to combine my reading lists into a drop down.   I'm hoping to design the blog nicely this year as I'm not enamored of blogger, but also don't want to spend the time to make a pretty blog.  There is a 2023 goal of "fix blog design" which is nice and vague and might involve paying someone to make it pretty for me.  Or paying my husband (in beer) to migrate it all to WordPress... and then make it pretty for me.

I haven't had a lot of time for reading blogs recently - if you've come across good habit or goal posts for 2023 will you share them with me?   I'm looking forward to reading everyones intentions this year!


  1. Congratulations on a successful start to the year with your habit goals.

  2. What a lovely picture from the beach :) and I am glad you got to spend NYE with some friends.
