New Years Resolutions

I will make ONE New Year's Resolution and then tell you how I am doing things different this year.

I need to lose weight, spend more time with the kids, clean the house, etc, etc, etc.

Every year I say the things I will do and it never happens (well not enough anyway).

I resolve to: (drum roll please) attempt to put the laundry AWAY! I currently will fold it and sort socks and then move them to another location but not actually put them away. I resolve to do so now.

This year, 2009, is going to be MY year. This is the year I will turn 40. I am looking forward to it. I have already noticed the wonderful changes that occur when a woman gets older (and I don't mean menopause). The idea that you are an individual. Your a person. Not just a mom or a wife. Not just a daughter or an employee. It is a state of mind. I am awaiting my birthday. I will make this year wonderful!

My New Year's Resolution is going to be a bit backwards. Instead of saying what I "will do" I will say what I "did do". I will do things that I don't usually do and post them here. Or rather, when I do things I don't normally do. Which quite frankly, aside from reading and playing the DS would be just about everything.

Today I cleaned out on of the kitchen cabinets. Removed all items (with Diego's help for WAY back there), cleaned the shelf, washed all (okay, most) of the dishes. Matched lids to pans. Put all glass bowls together, etc.

I found I have TWO hand mixers. Why is that? I even cleaned the cords. Oh yes, I accomplished a task today. Feel free to check back (hopefully often) to discover other things I might have done). I don't think I will do a before and after (photos) because when the mood hits you have to go with it.

Happy New Year!

Look at you go. I am preparing to do most of that over the next month or so. It feels good when it gets done.
