I have a whole list of resolutions this year
Take control of our financial crisis and agressively work to fix it
Restrict all eating out/Getting takeaway to 2 times a month.
(unless the inlaws are treating us )
Drink more water
Work harder to control/fix my depression and temper
Spend less time online and watching TV in the evenings when the kids go to bed
and more time doing "real life" activities
Keeping on top of housework, reading, playing scrabble with Mr Nerd...
"Play" with my children more.
I have a terrible inability to understand how to play with the boys.
I know how to love them, take care of them, provide for them.
But when it comes to playing with them, or trying to do children activities I feel like a computer that never had those programs installed.
Sometimes I even find it downright unpleasent.
Put some "In love" back into my "I love you"s with Mr Nerd
It's been too many years with us as Roomates/Best friends/Co-parents
And one final thing I would like to do this year: (when I can)
is to take on 1 project that scares me.
Meaning, a project that I constantly fantasize about, and think "gee I could do that. And I totally would, "but".." But the real truth is that the "but" is just my way of making excuses, so I don't ever have to go out of my comfort zone. I have a habit of only attempting things I know I'll be good at because I am so afraid to fail. I think I'll start small... But still.
It might be good for me to experience the terror/thrill of doing something new.
My main resolution I suppose, will be to stick to my list!
I am definately a list, chart and graph person. I need to have all of the information right there at a glance
and update it every time there is even a minor change. With so much to keep track of, it's the only way I can keep it all straight and stop having things fall through the cracks. To help me I actually emailed the Financial and budgeting charts to my husband at work and had him print them out and bring them home to hang up on the wall. It's a lot harder to ignore or forget something when it's staring you in the face.
