Just read my friend Shannon’s blog. She has all these lofty goals. And I usually try and make my own goals — but honestly, my life’s going fairly well. I mean, I had some minor snafus over Christmas Break as far as working out and calorie counting and all that jazz. But, I do have a few things:
1. One on One time with each kid each week. So, last week I took each one with me to the store. We chat while they’re in the car, etc. Nothing big — at all — just some simple time with just us. I think it could be huge. Could be.
2. Drew and I need to communicate better. Sometimes I wash the amazing race and I get a little nauseated thinking how we would respond in similar situations. SO, we’re gonna take the marriage relations class. After 10 years, even the finest machines can use a little tuning, right? Plus, my thoughts that Drew should basically be a mind reader aren’t helping anything, if you know what I mean (and I know you do).
3. Organize one room a month. Just really get into the nitty–gritties… find things that could help organize it better. This month’s the kitchen. I want to find some nice drawer inserts that can help me giant gadget drawer out a bit, and make my life more livable. Our kitchen is pretty dang small, but when it’s more organized and stuff isn’t falling on me I find myself to be a happier human. 😉 I do clean one room each day of the week, which will continue. But I think it will be nice to focus on the kitchen all month — maybe look for some organizing tips, etc. The Organized Junkie blog is also doing the kitchen this month on their blog (coincidence, I think not).
I went to Mervyn’s today. They’re having a SWEET sale. 70% off clearance. Got Drew and Conner outfitted for the winter (well, C was already outfitted, these will be for next year). Go me. Saved lots of moola. 🙂 And of course, I’m always resolute in that.
