Happy New Year! read correctly. It's still the New Year. It's January, I could still wish you a Happy New Year.

It's been an eventful start to the year. I've been exercising regularly for a few weeks now, and I'm addicted! My husband and I run five mornings a week to the beach and back home. So now that I've got that down, I'll start focusing on my diet. The fact that I ate homemade butter biscuits with jam, Doritos, Cracker Jack, an orange, an apple and ready-made ravioli today while waiting for my slow cooker Vegetable Barley Soup is a start to eating healthy.

I haven't made any resolutions, but I have decided that I need to focus on some things this year that will benefit not only me, but my whole family. I don't know how far I'll get because I believe that my children are secretly trying to kill me. My soon-to-be-17yr. old-high-school-graduate is trying to use psychological tactics to have me committed or get me to walk in the front of an oncoming train (which would really be a feat seeing that there are no trains in The Bahamas). While my 7yr. old son pepper sprayed me while I was driving over the weekend.

Well I have to finish dinner (the ready-made ravioli) and get to a PTA meeting. You have no idea how hard it is to be a homeschooler and be the secretary of the PTA. I have to bite my tongue quite a bit and try not to preach from the Homeschooling Bible. It's frustrating.
 So again, Happy New Year! I'll try to post regularly, but if you don't hear from me, please just email this post to the Royal Bahamas Police Force in case they may be investigating my mysterious disappearance.
