2010 Resolutions continued....

I thought of some things that needed to be added to my previous list:

-Drink more water! (Have I mentioned my dislike of water before? Usually the only water I get is from the ice in my Pepsi. Sad, yes...but I don't like the way it tastes.)

-Scrapbook at least once per month. Remember my first resolution? To stop procrastinating?!? Well, please don't revoke my Mommy card when I tell you that I haven't even started on Kade's baby book! *Gasp!* I'm sure you are all shocked! I do want to make a conscience effort to get that started, so Jan 16 I am going to be scrapbooking!

-Find a local bible study that meets on Tues or Thurs since I go to school on Mon and Wed. In addition, I would like to once again attempt to read the Bible from cover to cover in 2010!

-Devote the time I spend on Facebook to being a better wife and mother.

I'm sure there will be more...

*I'm going to trade in one of my resolutions. Mindy convinced me not to focus so much on Kade sleeping through the night. I've spent so much time lately thinking about this, and I've come to the conclusion that he will only be little once. Yes, it's frustrating. Yes, it's exhausting, but he may very well be the only little one I will ever have, so I am choosing to savor every single, exhausting, frustrating, precious second.

Mindy, by the way, is having an amazing giveaway! Go check it out!

2010 Resolutions

I have been putting off making my New Year's Resolutions. I am horrible at keeping resolutions. I get really excited at first. Then said excitement dwindles lower and lower and lower. So, without further ado, here is what I've come up with to work on for 2010.

1. Stop procrastinating. (How appropriate, huh, given I waited until Jan 4 to come up with a list?)

2. Get my son to sleep through the night.

3. Read 2 or more books per month.

4. Take my contacts out each night. (This is going to be hard as ever for me, since without them I am a blind as a bat and can't even read the alarm clock!)

5. Pick my clothes out for the next day before going to bed, so I will stop staring in my closet in the mornings waiting on my clothes to dress me. (Again, this is going to be hard!)

6. Clip coupons and bargain shop. (I really want to be one of those people who can buy $500 worth of groceries for $5. I'd even settle for $150 worth of groceries for $100).

7. Try to wake up 10 minutes earlier so I don't feel so rushed in the mornings.

8. Eat out less at work, and eat healthier at home. I will also include that I want to commit to cooking dinner for Kyle at least once per week--other than my specialties of corn dogs, tater tots, frozen pizza, or anything microwaveable. Seems doable, right? (I'll be going to school 2 nights, so 1 night seems the most realistic goal for now.)

9. Take the stairs at work instead of the elevator.

10. Most importantly, get back to being active in my church and pick up on the bible study I began in early November, but have postponed because of the holiday rush.

I'm sure this list will expand later, but I'll just leave you with these for now. What are your resolutions?
I began blogging several years ago in search of new friends who, like me, were having a difficult time getting pregnant. Five years, 2 miscarriages, 4 failed IUI's, and a doctor who told us "It will never happen" later, we are the proud parents of Kade and Kohen. They are each an example of God's absolute perfection. We thank God where medical intervention stops, Divine intervention begins.
