Sometimes it’s so nice to just wipe a slate clean and start over again.
Last years resolutions were hit or miss.
1…) Stop cussing, completely. Negative
2…) Smile more. Kinda sorta, I guess.
3…) Spend more individual time with Declan and treat him like an adult. Yes and no.
4…) Create and add some items to my Etsy shop. Nope.
5…) Do more craft projects — for myself and with the kids. Yes!
So, once again I’m going to set some resolutions and think about them randomly throughtout the year and feel bad when I don’t hit them 100%. Yep. Sounds about right.
1.) Stop cussing, completely — How did I end up wih such a potty mouth? While I admit that Declan telling me my ass is too big makes me giggle, it’s also quite embarassing in public.
2.) Detoxify the house — This one is difficult because my mom buys her own cleaning products and calls me, jokingly, a treehugger for my choices. It’s just so easy to have things build up under the sinks. Thankfully I clean so infrequently that it’s not a real issue to toss everything. I’m also going to start “No ‘Poo“ing my hair again. I tried before while working but couldn’t handle going out in public during the really wonky phase. Here’s a great LiveJournal community for it. We have an on again, off again relationship with the healthier beauty products, mainly because of finances. I think it might be time to just suck it up and buy what I know is best for the family — not best for my bank account.
3.) ETSY — Seriously, why can’t I get this going? I’ve decided not to do anymore swaps, so maybe that will make it easier? Wih the purcahse of a new sewing machine (50% off clearance sale) I’m definitly going to complete more projects, but I’d like to make a little extra cash too.
4.) Try to cut back on HFCS and MSG — With that combination it leaves next to zilch to buy. Thankfully Matt is on board with me and we’ve both done some research into the issue. Frankly it scares us.
Alright, I think that’s enough babbling. And the boys are waiting on me to watch a movie.
Thanks for reading!
