Post-Christmas Angst

The post-Christmas angst is here.  Our kids are at home and the excitement of their Christmas presents is quickly wearing off.  Some of us long for school to start again so we can get back into our rhythms.  We start to see year-in-review articles and guesses for what the next year might hold.  As we look back over the last year we see triumphs and we see mistakes.  How can we make this year different?  How can we live more organized, purposeful lives?  How can we take a more active role in the spiritual development of our kids?

Here are some websites that can help us as we learn from our past triumphs and mistakes and make this next year a great one:

Zen Habits – (not a site about Zen in a spiritual sense, but focused on simplicity and productivity)
Simplicity Parenting –
Simple Marriage –
Free Range Kids –
