I resolve to Get Back In Touch with Family... Skype with the MIL, finish Christmas cards AND send them, post the newly constructed list of family birthdates and come up with a plan, figure out the best way to stay connected with siblings and nieces and nephews, etc.
I love my extended family. I do not consider it a chore to visit them as we always have fun! I would love to do it more, but I am removed so far from them that it is just not financially possible (and after last week, I know that for sure). But there are other ways to keep in touch. And now that all of the small people can write, there must be a way to keep that bond alive. How do you do it? Do your kids keep in touch with the cousins? All are middle and elem school except my 2 big boys so FB is not the route for us. Today, we are starting with the holiday thank you notes. As we are nearly a month past Christmas, I would say it is about time. So we will write the notes and I will print and include recent pictures. Today's goal to this week's resolution is now made. Let us go forth and bond!
