Hello 2015.

I had a very uneventful New Year’s Eve, which is perfectly alright with me. I spent the evening watching “Cold Case” with a lovely lab snoozing on the floor next to me (his owner was already fast asleep in bed). I did tune in to watch the ball drop, but never actually managed to see that – I’ve heard a few other people state that they never actually saw the ball either.

Did you make any resolutions for 2015? I didn’t really, which I stopped making resolutions a few years ago. The way I figure, if I want to make a change in my life, I will without waiting for January 1st. My mom has made a couple of resolutions on my behalf though – to get more exercise and to eat better. I can’t really argue with that. She’s having us do some Jillian Michaels water weight detox starting tomorrow (water with cranberry juice, dandelion tea, and lemon juice).

My main focus for 2015 is on my writing. I WANT to finish writing something that I can work on having published. Other than that, I would like to focus on my gardening – developing my green thumb some more. I would finally like to start selling some herbal infused goodies in my Etsy shop.

Mom and I start our 52-week jar this upcoming week. We are doing the reverse 52-week at our house. Neither of us necessarily go in order, but as long as we check off each number, then we are good to go.

All I really want for 2015 is for my family, friends, and I to be happy and healthy and to create some good memories. I’m feeling very confident that this year will be an awesome year, even if I had a rough start to the year (I burned the black eyed peas I was cooking for luck, though they ended up turning out alright after all) and might have pouted for the majority of the morning of January 1st.

    • I’m glad that you asked! The “52-week jar” is just a catchy way to save money basically. There are 52 weeks in a year, so every week, you put money into a jar that corresponds to that way. Say, for the first week of the year, you would add a dollar. For the 13 week of the year, you would add $13 and so-on. I made it about halfway through the year last year (I saved about $550). The way my mom and I are doing is this year is that we are doing it backwards. For the first week of the year, we are starting by adding $52 and just counting down from there. It makes it a little bit easier since we are getting the harder weeks’ completed before the end of the year when we need that money for Christmas and whatnot.
