Happy New Year!

Well, another year has come and gone, and here I sit thinking about all the resolutions I made last year – to spend more time cleaning my house, to blog more, to keep my office more organized, to get in shape…

This year I am resolving to do one thing – take things one day at a time! I’m sure many of you can relate to the pressure of being a ranch wife – not only do you need to cook, clean, launder, file, etc., you also have to keep your kids alive, clean and in school, and on top of that, you are the non-paid hired man that is needed at all the most inconvenient times. I have finally come to the realization that nobody is going to die if my house looks like three teenage boys live here ALONE. There are much more important things in life – like spending time with my family, reading, crafting, sleeping… My point is – don’t kill yourself trying to impress other people with your clean house. Instead, impress everyone with your mad family skills, because in the long run, no one is going to care how clean your house was, but they will remember all those fun times they with you.

Anyway, I don’t really have much to say except that we’re coming up on calving quickly, and life is about to get super busy again, but I am going to do my absolute best to keep this blog updated – and SUSAN is going to contribute as well. After all, she’s only got two cows and they don’t calve till May, so she REALLY doesn’t have an excuse not to blog about her remodeled house and all her retirement excitement. 🙂

Until next time,
