It's 9am on Monday morning and I am still in bed. Lili has come to keep me company so we are listening to a Frozen playlist as I type. I fully expect her to start dancing around on the bed at any moment.
I am so so happy to see the back of 2016, please let's not ever have a repeat of that year. I laid in bed and listened to the fireworks feeling such a sense of relief feeling that it was over. I don't know what it is about the end of a year but it I totally feel like it gives you permission to push the rest button on life.
Our family has a crazy exciting year ahead! Our house that we are building....have been waiting on for TWO years should finally be finished in the next 2 months!!!!! Things I am most excited about? Well an oven door that doesn't need duct tape to close, a living room that doesn't let it rain inside, a dish washer, aircon, a nice neighbourhood. We really really really can't wait. Last week the roof leaked so bad that there was a waterfall in our living room. It saturated all our books and board games and PASSPORTS! Thankfully 2 of the most damaged passports already needed renewing but Lili's didn't and I am pretty annoyed about having to fork out the money for that. The silver lining on that cloud is that her passport photo is not the cutest...just being honest. She was a cute baby but that photo is not cute!
In 77 days we are leaving on a month long road trip in the USA, with a 5 night cruise to Mexico thrown in to celebrate mine and Aarahi's 30th birthdays. I have spent HOURS over the past year planning for this holiday and I can't wait to see it come to fruition. Hopefully I will be able to share some tips and trick for holiday planning on a budget and how to do it debt free in the next couple of months. We will be visiting LA, Catalina Island, Ensenada Mexico, Las Vegas, Southern Utah, Salt Lake City, Moab, Page, Grand Canyon, Sedona, Phoenix, and San Diego. We may even try to vlog out trip but no promises.
We have one more week of holidays before we are back into school work. Auron would much rather watch youtube and play Roblox all day but unfortunately the kid is only 5 and life doesn't quite work that way. Lili will also be joining us officially this year which she is RIDICULOUSLY excited about.
As for New Years Resolutions? I haven't really made any. Last year knocked me about pretty bad so this year I plan to just focus on my own family and forget about trying to please everyone else. Also I'll try to keep this blog updated because it really do enjoy it. I will aim for 3 days a week and see how we go with that.
Ps Lili left 20mins ago and I am still listening to Frozen, even singing along. I can't even what pre-kids me was like anymore. I am pretty sure I didn't know the words to every Disney song!
