New Year, New Ideas, New Post

I hate resolutions.  For some it is a yearly challenge to choose resolutions and stick with them as long as possible.  For me?  It is something for me to forget that I had meant to do after a couple of days.  So I don't even bother to make any.  However, that doesn't mean I don't have intentions during the year to change things in my life.  It does seem that I have a lot of those intentions at the beginning of the year.  Today is no different.  So to start the new year, I am going to attempt to start off on the right foot with a couple of different things.  I failed to start off eating better.  I've had more caffeine and sugar than I need.  I haven't exercised today so that knocks that out of the water, too.  And I have definitely lost my cool over a couple of minor things that I wish I hadn't have done.  But what's done is done and I have to learn from my mistakes.  I will blog, in the hopes that maybe by doing something I would like to improve on, that maybe, just maybe, something else will fall in line tomorrow.  We will see what happens.

Tomorrow I return to work after being off for the last week on vacation.

I. Really. Don't. Want. To. Go. Back.




I spent the last week catching up on my laundry, spending time with my family at Christmas, un-decorating the tree, straightening up my laundry room, playing Band Hero with all three kids, playing Scrabble with Belle and Brady, working on a puzzle with Belle and Brady, taking the kids to the park (even though we left shortly after we got there because Brady wasn't feeling well), and I attempted to take them to the library but unfortunately for us, the day I took them, they were closed.  Oh well.  Next time.  I remember now what it's like being a stay at home mom.  To be able to do what I need to when I need to and spend some quality time with the kids.  I'm sure if I had taken my vacation on a week when the kids were in school, I would remember how bored I got because I can only do so much housework before I'm ready to stop.  Needless to say, I enjoyed my time off and am not ready to get back into the swing of working just yet.  Oh to have one more week!

Hubs and I are still weighing our options on his job situation.  We have been back and forth on the spectrum about moving and staying home.  Find a new job or transfer in the company.  Move the kids or let them finish school where they are.  So many decisions to make!  The kids are aware of the choices that we are facing and for now are excited at the prospect of moving.  Hubs, however, isn't so sure it is a good idea, having made the same move at the same age Bryce is now.  Difference is we have three kids who are ready to move on to bigger and better things and meet new people where Hubs didn't want to leave his friends and family.  Oh how things have changed!

I find it time for me to collect my things and get ready for bed.  Work is going to come really early in the morning as much as I hate to go back!  So a question for those who occasionally stop by...

Do you make resolutions?  What have you made?  Any recommendations on how to stick with the things I would like to improve?  I would love to hear from you!

Happy New Year to all my readers and may 2012 be a great year to you!

I have resolutions...but this year I have opted to keep them in my own heart and head in hopes that will make them more successful.
