I have a few goals I am working on for May. Let's get them out in the universe shall we? Maybe I'll actually accomplish one of them. HA!
1. DINNER - I have been working on this beast for a while and it never used to be such an issue. At some undocumented point in time dinner got messy at our house. The boys never ate what I made and would instead insist on whatever sounded good out of the fridge while Thomas and I ate what I actually cooked. This annoyed me so much I started just slacking on dinner all together. I am happy to report that we all sit down like a real functional family now since I recently became aware of some pretty interesting statistics about the happiness and success of children who grow up eating together as a family. So yeah, keep working on that one. Tried to love that day in and day out it's ultimately my job and guess what- all of a sudden I do! Weird.
2. ANOTHER FOOD ONE- I think I need to be annoying and not eat sugar for a while. I know, it's so dumb when people do that (I've done it before and I annoyed myself.) because it's just not realistic and it's not very social.... but I have major antisocial tendencies anyway so bring it on. I just want to feel better and it felt great last time I backed off the sugar for a few weeks. We'll see.
3. I want to blog like my sister. She has a private blog with a picture a day of what her family is up to. She prints it off every year as a family journal. Brilliant. I might try and do it here, but I am not kidding myself into thinking I'll be totally consistent or that anyone would really care to see a picture a day of us aside from my own family so maybe I'll take that one private too. I have been feeling a little shy about the fact that just anyone can read my family journal and think whatever they want about me, my family, what we do, what I say...etc. I mean, think about it, it's pretty strange. Some jerk can come upon what you decide to post and mock you for it or criticize your choices or feel competitive or whatever. No one's ever commented anything negative, but it's just a possibility that has always irked me enough to want to go private. Ultimately I never do because my mom wouldn't know how to log in (haha love you MOM!) and it's just a nice way to keep in touch but, um, if posting everyday gets too weird up in here... we'll just take this little journal private and be weird by ourselves! haha
4. And finally, I have been trying to get my act together in general lately. There's so much I should be doing and if I have to decide what to make for dinner at 5PM I am stressed about it and more likely to just toss whatever together for us all to eat at random times or eat out. Same with exercise, cleaning, stuff we have to get done throughout the week... so I have started making myself a weekly schedule. Can't say I totally followed it last week, but it definitely gave me more direction to my week so here's to keeping it up! And yes, there is a "FUN!" column... the planned fun never got followed because we are crazy fun all the time. HA! I'm gonna start scheduling when to use the bathroom and breathe too.
So, yeah, by the end of May I will be a dinner making, sugarfree, daily blogger, with her act together! Right? Right? :)
