Once upon a time I spent New Years Eve in New York City. I mean I had fun with Kim looking for everyone we were supposed to have met up with, but overall in terms of how the movies present it, it wasn’t like the movies. Last year (2011) was kind of a big let down for me in terms of New Year’s Eve. This time around, I had no big expectations of popping the bubbly at midnight and kissing my husband. I opened a bottle of champagne when my kids went down for the night at 7:00ish pm, stuffed myself with less than spectacular pastries while watching the movie New Year’s Eve…and was in bed by 10:30.
I consider New Years resolutions. I am not a goal maker, mostly because when I have been instructed to make goals, they are often too lofty to attain and then I just look at the list and feel like crap. So this year, I would like to make some goals for myself, but, within my power and within reason. So, here goes…
Lea’s New Year’s Goals for 2013
- Keep losing weight, journal food again.
- Spend more time with people I love. Don’t feel obligated to spend time with people that drain me.
- Sweep the floor.
- Hang things on the walls.
- Only wear clothes that look great on me, unless I’m working out.
- Learn to love the dog.
- Stop keeping things that aren’t needed or loved. Start with the kids stuff.
- Avoid running out of paper towels
- Coupon better
- Follow through
- Don’t over commit
- Have pretty feet
- Paint the dining room and living room…or have someone who’s good at it do it
I think that’s fair, don’t you? Of course, looking at it I now wonder who thinks they’re a drain on me. Perhaps it was unwise to post it. Sweep the floor? I generally vacuum the whole thing, tile, carpet, etc…but the dog is just shedding so much and dirt coming in from outside is making me think I should be breaking out the broom as well. Pretty feet? I cannot stomach the prices for pedicures in this town…and my feet are looking pretty awful because of it. I miss the $35 mani-pedis down the street from my moms house, so so much.
Another goal, to blog more, with less complaining and more pictures. We shall see. We shall see. In the meanwhile…here’s a fun family pic that made the christmas card, but not FB.
Happy New Year friends!
