Do you make New Year's resolutions?  I do, despite sometimes abandoning them mid-January.  If I can make it to February, I rate it as a success!  This year is no different.  I have all sorts of resolutions in mind, but they have very little to do with New Years.  I've had them in mind for a while, or I've already been working on them.  But since I'm in a sharing mood, I thought I'd share a few of them here.

1.  Use more patience when dealing with the littles
This one is a work in progress.  I try every day to use more patience, and some days are good, and some days are stunningly bad.  When you have a 3 year old that is supremely stubborn about potty training, and a 1 year old that is teething and annoying to the 3 year old, then patience can be hard to manage.
2.  Start an Etsy shop.
I have so many ideas pinballing around in my head to sell on etsy, but I have been really procrastinating.  Moving, having Brian work long days, and just being scared about it have been hampering me.  But I truly hope to start one this Spring.  I WILL start one this Spring.  Despite moving again in March.  But I WILL!  Right?  ...right?...
3.  Be brave.
This goes hand in hand with the above resolution, but I really need to lose some fear if I'm going to stretch my wings.  It is so hard to go outside my comfort zone, and so instinctual to just not.  So I'm gonna try and step outside that comfort zone, try new things, and see where it takes me.
4.  Maintain an exercise schedule
Oh, I am so bad about this one.  I will go strong for a while, and then sort of peter out.  The last contact I made with my treadmill was last week when I ran into it.  Hard.  I have a nice bruise on my leg from it.  So yeah.  Exercise.  Man, I really hate this one.  It's not even about losing weight, it's about having energy to keep up with the littles!  Of course losing weight would be a bonus...
I have a few others I've been working on, but you get the picture.  How about you?  Do you have any resolutions?  Rowan's resolutions are to taste each donut in the box, apparently.  She was successful this morning.

  1. Your resolutions are the same as mine ;). I have the same stubborn 3 year old who drives me CRAZY! (Well, he is almost 3.)


your comments are the peanut butter to my jelly!
