So, to recap... Here is last year's official resolution list:
1. Lose 30 lbs by June 1st. (*see previous post for Mary's Ella's thoughts on this*)
HAHAHAHAHAHA. But I do have an excuse. Well, 3 excuses. Every time I EVER try to lose weight, I either:
a) get pregnant
b) realize that Thanksgiving is 2 weeks away
c) randomly receive a gift card to the most fattening restaurant on the planet. And you KNOW I ain't ordering no salad! Not on a gift card! No sir.
2. Grow my hair out long again so I can wear it curly and not have a fro.
CHECK. It is long now. And fro-free. Thank you, Pantene Beautiful Lengths.
3. Keep the house clean, keep the laundry from piling up.
I probably should have worded this one "Keep the house cleaner than I've kept it during my first 6 months with a newborn." Because then it could officially be checked off the list. I will give myself credit and go ahead and say CHECK to this, though. On a technicality that my wording was a bit off.
4. Be more organized.
Judging by a few piles of miscellaneous junk and mail that are staring me in the face as I type, I'd have to say a big fat NO to this one. I'm trying.
5. Continue saving money so I don't have to go back to work.
Well, we continued to save so that I wouldn't have to go back FULL TIME... does that count? I am working PRN, meaning whenever I want. It averages out to 1 or 2 days every 2 weeks. So CHECK, maybe. Half CHECK?
6. Give more.
Check, although there is always room to improve in this area.
7. Get my garage cleaned out.
YES! YES! YES! My Dad and I spent one looonng Saturday cleaning out my garage. It took about 8 hours total. And that was about 8 months ago. And now it looks hideous AGAIN! So #7 will be added to the new list, I'm afraid.
8. Finish the downstairs playroom and make it a functional space to live, entertain and play.
9. Run a 5K.
YEA! I'M LAZY. (Actually I was signed up to do the UCP 5K on October 31st of this year. Same excuse. Pregnant.)
10. Learn to sew.
CHECKMATE. Still need to learn a LOT. But CHECK nonetheless.
Now stay tuned for my new list!
