They say (who the hell are “they”??) that if you write down or voice your New Year’s Resolutions out loud, you are more likely to keep them. Considering I have never stuck to a New Year’s Resolution more than two weeks, it is doubtful that this will be very helpful. Here’s to hoping…
- Refrain from using the housekeeping philosophy of “If you can’t see it, it’s clean”.
- Match my outfits by color of the garment rather than color of the stains on the garment.
- Get dressed in “real” clothes at least
five fourthree times a week.
- Stop pretending not to smell dirty diapers when I know my husband is a few minutes away from home.
- Admit to myself that the food I eat off my daughter’s plate does in fact have calories.
- Stop considering coffee one of the major food groups.
- Stop reading my daughter the “abridged” version of her books. In my defense, I usually don’t start skipping pages and making up alternate endings until after the 50th time of reading a particular book.
Embrace acceptnot freak out on a daily basis about the wrinkles forming on my face.
- Stop complaining about being exhausted when I stay up until 2am watching Real Housewives on Bravo.
- Stop kidding myself that it’s only one glass of wine even though I pour right up to the rim.
- Use sippy cups strictly for their intended use. NOT for iced coffee on the go or wine in the hot tub.
- Stop using the dogs as a vacuum cleaner for my daughter’s crumbs.
