Hmmm... Lets find a new word for resolution... Googling...
... New Years... propositions? No, I WILL NOT proposition myself... I have my dignity.
... New Years ... resolves? Nah, too cleany.
New Years... aims... ??? Golly (yah, I say it...so), renaming resolutions is tougher than I thought it would be. Perhaps I should go less ... um... something.
Here are my 2009 New Years but really just a day later than yesterday declarations that I came up with while contemplating what I didn't accomplish last year and would like to accomplish this year all while finishing off a container of spinach dip with a loaf of stale, cubed sourdough bread.
#1 Read the Bible everyday (the grown up version... the one not written for children :-0).
#2 Pray more.
#3 Start doing my own devotionals again.
#4 Get up before the kids so I can accomplish #1-3 (currently I get up with them, and its just not working).
#5 Be more patient and compassionate.
#6 Kill the TV.
#7 Spend less time avoiding the kids (all you mommies know what I mean... I think).
#8 Don't sweat the small stuff (like today when I screamed at Kiah about a playdoh lid ...dumb... its just playdoh).
#9 Create a more formal school schedule (more for my own benefit than the kids).
#10 Lose weight. Exercise. Eat healthier.
So #10 (and perhaps a few others) is a little cliche. However, it is necessary. I have started a new blog called DIE with a T and it will be about my journey to a better body. I didn't want to bog down my fun and frilly blog here with all the boring details of my efforts to lose weight... see, then if you are really interested you can check it out... if not, forget I ever mentioned it.
So there you have it ...
Happy New Year!
