Those Resolution Thingees

I looked back here and see that I failed miserably last year. So, here we go again. I've really given these some thought and hope that I can follow through with them.

  • Make the bed daily. It really does set the tone for the day. I feel so much better and get so much more done when I do take the literal two seconds it takes to make it.
  • Spend less time on the computer. MUCH less.
  • Try to make sense of the Old Testament and get a little of the history sorted out. Make reading every day a priority.
  • Be kind to myself.
  • Start knitting again. Even if it is just on car rides. Knitting really centers me.
  • Strive for patience with my children. And my husband. And myself.
  • Have company at least once a month. This will be hard for me.
  • Keep up on the laundry. Oh, who am I kidding!?

This list could be my list!! The only change I would make is that I do still knit and I'm grateful for that. And I need to spend way WAY less time on the computer. Good luck with your list!

Very nice list...many of these things should be on my 'list'...except for that I never made a 'list'! And when your house is on the active listing market, you kinda have to make your bed. Maybe I should make my kids beds everyday, instead of just when we have a showing :O) (they have bunkbeds, and they suck with a 7 mos pregnant belly). Maybe I'll just try to stick by your list ;o)

i usually make our bed before going to bed..it makes more sense to have straight sheets for the night:P what do you mean exactly by getting centered?

hmmm, last bullet . . . refer to bullet #4. I'd like to meet the woman that keeps up on laundry. Making the bed is a must for me ~ I have to begin the night with my half of the covers or I end up with nothing!!

According to what I'm reading here, I "make" my bed everynight before I climb in. It really just straightening the sheets/pillows/covers. If Jason hops in before me and the covers are a mess, I make him get out and fix it. I always say "you know it's not gonna work for me, so if you'd just do it in the first place..." He's getting better.

Not doing so well on some of my resolutions. Whatever.
