I think I can. I think I can.

I have never been one to make New Year’s resolutions, or I suppose it would be more accurate to say I have never been one that has been good at keeping New Year’s resolutions. 

But this year will be different.  Maybe…

I think I need a new type of challenge and (if we are being honest) a replacement for the things I miss about having a job outside the home.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love being home with my babies every day.  It’s not about that.  It’s just a different sort of satisfaction or a “good job” that comes from having a corporate job.  I don’t miss 99% of it 99% of the time but, what can I say, I’m human and sometimes I miss the fulfillment I got from completing a big project. 

So here is to making resolutions this New Year!

 -          Start a blog.  Post at least 4 times a week
                   (check – sort of.  Do 2 posts count?)

-          Lose the last of the baby weight
                   (8 months post delivery – no more excuses!)

-          Try a new recipe each week
                   (I love Pinterest and cooking so this should be easy…right??)

-          Make an effort to be less tired
                  (Eat better?  Go to bed earlier? Exercise? We NEED to make this one happen!)

-          Be present
                 (Put the iphone down and enjoy the moments that are passing by too quickly)

What are your New Year’s resolutions?  Any suggestions to be successful in reaching the goals?
