You say you want some resolutions. Well, you know.

by Miranda on January 1, 2013

It’s 2013 now and I’m supposed to make some resolutions. I cannot even begin to tell you what I resolved to do last year. But then again I can barely remember brushing my teeth yesterday, so the fact that I can’t remember what happened 365 days ago should come as a shock to absolutely no one.

Suffice it to say that I don’t think I’m great at keeping resolutions. And I make them anyway. Like these gems I’m about to put in writing for the Universe to read and use to keep me accountable-ish.

I resolve to:

  • eat less crap.
  • get off my ass more.

Simple enough. I need to lose some weight. My muffin top has muffin tops of its own. It’s…disgusting. And uncomfortable. So, it’s the same resolution that nearly everyone makes as they come down from the holiday food high, but whatever. I need to make it. SOMETHING’S GOTTA GIVE. And it can’t be my wallet forking out dough for more leggings and (even) bigger jeans.

I also resolve to:

  • structure our days a little better.

This shouldn’t be hard. Pinterest is a smorgasbord of things to do with kids. My kid? Is not interested in doing things with me until I’m incapable of doing things with him. Like when I’m nursing Emma or going to the bathroom. We need some more structure in our day.

Furthermore, 2013 will be the year of:

  • getting our house to feel like home.
  • getting more organized.
  • staying that way.

Our house is a house. We live here. It’s a hodgepodge of styles from our college days with things we’ve picked up along the way. And I dislike about 75% of it. (Decor, I mean. The furniture can stay.) I damn near sent Dan into a panic attack when I showed him my decor board on Pinterest this morning and started yammering on about book cases and shelving and storage and laundry room cabinets. All he saw was a growing honey-do list and a shrinking amount of time in which to do all of these things. So this is on me. I’ll make it happen somehow. Even if I have to learn to use the table saw to do it.

(Please don’t make me use the table saw. I almost lost my facehairs lighting the grill.)

I think that’s basically what I hope to accomplish in 2013. Viva la Resolutions!

I’m just going to copy-paste this over to my own blog, since they’re all the same resolutions I was going to make but I’m too lazy to actually make them. OK, thanks.

I normally don’t make resolutions bc I break them within days of making them. But my muffin top has got to go! And I just ordered another pair of leggings from Ann Taylor Loft. So I need to get my ass to the gym. … Starting next week;) I need time to plan out how I’m going to do it. Another plan for 2013 is start writing a blog again! I used to love it years ago. I think it will help me when I’m at my breaking point with the kid at home. Anyway hope 2013 brings you some much needed rest and more good coffee!
