January 1st, 2012

Some resolutions that I will try (mwah haha!) to keep:

-Reach for some herbal tea, yoga, and meditation before/instead of reaching for the ibuprofen.
-Let my kids get dirty more often and look at little irritations (dumping out toys, running through the house, etc.) as just kids being kids. No biggie.
-Be on time in the morning so I don't have to yell, "Let's go! We're late!" at the kids.
-Meditate (the relaxation kind) at least twice a week.
-Lose 20 pounds. Well, at least 15.
-Get back to daily Bible reading. (Didn't know I was religious? Surprise. I am.)
-Flylady, Flylady, Flylady. I'm actually thinking about adding a new section, Fridays with Flylady to the blog. Thoughts?

New Year's resolutions are funny things, aren't they? We get two simultaneous messages.
1. New Year's resolutions are traditional, so you must make them!
2. But no one ever keeps them, so don't try!

I'm going to try to keep these. Really. I think I'm going to post them somewhere in my house.

In 2012, what are you going to really, really try to do?

I love New Year's resolutions. I've been doing a pretty good job of keeping up with them the last few years. I don't always achieve all my goals, but I still think it is a valuable process.

You've got some great goals. I'm not a big Flylady fan (I don't trust anyone who wears shoes in their own house), but I do understand the desire to be more organized in one's homemaking. I think posting your resolutions somewhere you will see them regularly is a great idea.

I have several goals this year including reading goals, writing goals, and a craft goal among others.

Good luck!

Kristin, good for you keeping your resolutions! Way to go!!

I do FlyLady because I'm a highly disorganized person. Housekeeping is not a skill I have, which is odd since we had many chores growing up. As for the shoes, I've seen so, so many people that absolutely hate that! Personally, I think do what's best for you. Many days, I just wear slip-ons. I do most of FlyLady, but you know, I never dry my sink when I'm done. Ever. It seems weird to me. But by following it (ish), I get a little closer to cleaner home without going full out June Cleaver.

Whatever works best for you and your family is best.
