Now I have that Beatle’s song stuck in my head. But with the wrong words, so it’s not a good thing.
Here’s my issue with resolutions. Mine tend to look like a to-do list, and truthfully my one resolution should be to not make any to-do lists. But I can’t help it, they make me happy and it would be a hard habit to break. With that in mind, my resolutions will not be things I can just check off as being “done” until December 31st, 2010. Then I’d like to look back and say, “yeah, I did that!” Maybe that will lead to less “to-do’s” and more attitude changes.
Because saying “get Noodle to eat, get Noodle to sleep, and have a healthy baby” is too simple for me, I wrote down the goals I have in mind for the new year (and let’s include the eating/ sleeping/ healthy new baby, too).
Work on being healthy:
- lose the baby weight faster (start by not gaining so much this time to begin with)
- figure out what’s causing me so much physical pain and insomnia (have you seen the time I usually post? The Late Late Show has got nothing on me!)
- get back into running as soon as my c-section heals (run at least one race this year)
- take a yoga class.
Work on simplifying:
- use my new slow-cooker to have delish dinners ready with little prep time
- get a mother’s helper a few days a week to play with Noodle while I run errands and take care of the new little bundle of joy
- find systems that make laundry/dishes/cleaning easier and faster so we have more family time
- get rid of everything we don’t use/ want/ love/ need (hellllloooo, massive garage sale!)
- buy LESS and use what we already have MORE!
Continue to improve our home to fit with our family:
- a new room for the baby
- update the living room to fit our needs
- new dining room furniture to increase storage and space
- keep up the garden/landscaping to provide beauty and space to run and play.
Work on being ME:
- learn how to use my new SLR camera
- get my daughter’s charity off the ground by getting our second project started
- carve out some time to follow through on these resolutions during what appears to be our busiest year ever!
