Yikes! How did 2017 creep up so fast? I’m late on my resolutions but I wanted to write something realistic and attainable. None of this lose weight, feel great, eat better crap. That’s stuff we should all be doing on a regular basis. We’re adults (most). There were a few things that I really wanted and some are so basic that I shouldn’t have such a hard time doing it. Realistically, how hard is it to go to the beach? It’s hard LOL. We have a pool and a 3 (soon to be 4) year old and it’s easier to throw him into the pool that to pack all our belongings and head to the beach – which is also right around the corner or a super short drive away. (yes, horrible I know.) I also find it hard to spend time with friends. I have them here but it’s one of those things where I’m not making enough effort. Cam and I have to make more effort. We’re so involved with Logan and ourselves that we don’t make the effort to reach out to people more. My friend Emi is starting a mother’s group where we can hang out/drink with no kids/dad’s/husbands. I felt like I shouted “yes, sign me up” via email to her. I’ve been also putting off this DNA testing because it’s just a scary thought to think that you’ve been living this possible cultural lie. I’m proud of my heritage regardless but it’ll be funny if you’ve been celebrating the wrong one for years. (There’s this issue with us being Italian and not Spanish like I thought.) Last year also made me reflect on the fact that I am doing a bad job of showing Logan his Filipino roots. I’m planning on making more of a conscious effort to show Logan there’s other Filipino food besides lumpia. So, here’s to 2017 and hope you enjoy my journey.
