It’s the holidays (Happy Holidays, by the way…Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Channukah and Happy Festivus) and  the end of the year and the end of the decade.  It’s almost TWENTY-TEN!  Wow!  Remember when we were partying like it was 1999?  And when we were worried about Y2K?  All that is over and we’ve moved into the future.

I’m up late listening to the rain (yes, I said rain) outside…at 1:38 am.  I love this time of night.  Everyone is asleep, it’s relaxing time for me.  I’m always being reminded to take time for myself and this is one of those times.  Late night.  Some people (Kate and Alexis!) like to get up super-early for Adventure Boot Camp, but me, I like to stay up late.  It’s like back when my kids were babies and they wanted me to be awake with them in the early hours of the morning.

Anyway, back to the holidays.  Whatever you celebrate, it’s a time of reflection and renewal.  Resolutions.  Family time.  Eating.  Cookies.  Can’t forget about the cookies.  It’s been nice to have some time focused on my kids and I’m looking forward to more of that (since Mothers & Company is closed until January 4th).  Maybe the Children’s Museum in Boston, maybe some sledding (if this rain would turn to snow!), maybe walking the dogs…and of course, sleeping late and staying in our pajamas is always a great way to hang out as a family.  Whatever we decide to do, I’m trying to focus on being “in the moment” with them.  It’s so easy to be busy but harder to value every second.  Today’s the anniversary of the horrible tsunami that took place five years ago where more than 250,000 people lost their lives.  Makes ya think: enjoy every moment.  Tell them you love them.  Hug.  And hug some more.  And don’t forget to tickle.  Gotta love the tickles.

Resolve to be in the moment in 2010.  With your family.  With your friends.  With your Self.  And remind me to do the same if you see me not doing that…thanks.
