New Years Resolutions
I am not always a big resolutions person, but this year feels different. Not only am i doing resolutions, i am breaking them down by categories. This post will not catch them all, but i have several already listed and this seems like a good holding spot for them. I am going to work on a tracker so i can see what all i get through.
Cooking/Food:I am going to master crepes-have the most fab banana sauce inspired by bananas foster- and souffle. fab gooey and decadent chocolate souffle. I want to try more ethnic cooking as well. Like Indian or thai. Stuff i enjoy eating out and don't make at home. Our new economic reality makes that pretty essential. I am also going to make more foods that i enjoy, like squid and mussels. The rest of the gang around is going to have to suck it up and eat the stuff or starve.
homemaking: Time to address the clutter and clusters all over this house. Then i will more comfortable to have people over. I miss socializing with friends. Plus this way i can host a few friends who have us over a lot. It might even help with the less stressing part of my wellness goal. Not to mention the toddler i will have soon means a sqaured away home is necessary.
Family: enjoy them more. Bond be tighter. Some of those things are happening naturally with being in more. Maybe even some of the cooking with aj. A lot more grace and break giving, being a little less high strung---but not with being pigs!
Friends- work on being a better one and expanding my circle.
bible reading to be more frequent and deeper.
Finances: to get off the feast or famine cycle. Get some real savings and make that automatic. Like i would love to end the year with 10k in a plain old saving account and an active retirement fund.
Fun to live deeper and have a better life. A week at the beach. We are going somewhere even if we just stay in a tent. The water is calling me. Going for a week with everyone to San Diego would be even better, but Hilton Head could be just as fab.
Well i doubt that is everything, but it is quite a long start at least. I do tend find the first year after a baby a great time to start over for me as well.
