Becca is back at preschool this morning. Andrew is taking a morning nap. John's in the basement. I'm enjoying a hot, fresh brewed cup of coffee, thanks to my new Keurig coffee maker (what do you know? Coffee can just make itself and clean itself up!)
I've been gradually adding on new resolutions to my New Year's Resolution list. Before it was just one: photos. But that wasn't something I could work on every day. So, I've since added another: not to get on the Internet until the kitchen is picked up and the dishes/sink completely cleaned. That, my friends, is a challenge. Because who wants to wash dishes when the computer is just sitting here, in the kitchen, winking at me? And, just to be unoriginal and cliche, I thought I'd add in a fitness resolution as well. And that is to workout more days than not. That means 4 days a week, minimum. (I'm scared to even put that in writing. Terrified.)
As for my resolutions last year, that was a rather epic fail. In fact, I just went back to read them and totally forgot that I resolved anything about eating fish. That definitely didn't happen. In fact, I can't remember the last time I cooked fish. I also never learned the manual settings on my camera. Never even tried. But, I did get some control back in my life. Though, at the time I wrote that I had a new baby. So basically just sleeping more than 5 hours at night pushed me in the right direction. But, whatever! I did get a grip on some organizational aspects of my life. I feel more equipped to handle two kids and life as I know it. Basically, I give myself a D minus on last year's resolutions. Here's hoping for some improvement for 2010!
Erin has a great idea of assigning one word to the year. Just a theme, if you will. I love that idea. No hard and fast resolutions that you break in February. No failed goals. But rather just one word that you are working on in your life. I think this year, my word will be "Flow." Go with it. Accept it. Unclench a bit and let things go. Roll with the punches. (Except for the dishes!)
