A testament to my new life that my posting about new years resolution comes on January four. And a mere 22 minutes from January five. Welcome, motherhood. Anyway, to begin. I love love love to make lists. I make them at work, while the phone rings over my headset. I map out all the things I must accomplish that day. I fold the list and put it in my pocket; I arrive home, change out of my uniform and set said list on the bed. And it doesn’t get done. So, for a list-lover, New Years is Mecca. And being 100% genuine human, I envision myself in 2013 being that version of myself which is, in fact, a myth. I haven’t ever been that person. In 2013 my days will march on unstressed and organized. I will rise in a timely fashion; present myself at work with a manicured appearance (ponytail holders, I think, were invented about 5 minutes after the creation of Eve). I will complete my day at work, make dinner, cuddle my son, paint, do some handywork during a night show, clean up the kitchen, and retire from a neat living room to bed with time to read the latest biography I’ve borrowed from the library. Reality looks more like last night, stressed over keeping #2 on my list, snapping at my husband, up past midnight painting while watching the re-play of E! news, taking a break to care for crying baby. :) But I kept it. How does it go? Where there’s life, there’s hope?
This year’s plan– to include my resolutions in my blog. So, when I blog, at least on some posts, I’ll check up with my resolutions. “Here’s an art show I went to this weekend. Arms still fat.”
Therefore, you see my 6 resolutions. #1-never done it. #2That’s potentially a painting a week! #3. Sigh. The ongoing habit. A friend once said to me on one of my growing stints “Mary! You have nails!” #4 Don’t laugh, I’ve got one in the works (which I’ve stopped working on about 2 years ago) #5 The self-publishing children’s book opportunity is still on–more on that later. #6. Two Words. Kelly Ripa.
Ok people–sharing time. What’s yours?
