New Years Resolutions Update

Soooo it's June - which that means we're officially halfway through 2010. I feel like this is probably a fitting time to sit down and review my New Year's Resolutions. Frankly, the scene is dismal. And that's why I need this public kick in the pants.

1. Read 24 books.

If we're halfway through the year, I should have read, what - 12 books by now? (I know my mommy brain gets a little fuzzy with the numbers sometimes, but I like to think I can still do the basic operations on double digits in my head.) Unfortunately, I'm still on #3. Pathetic. I don't even want to tell you that I listened to one of them on CD.

The good news is that we moved to a 2 bedroom apartment, and our big, comfy chair has found a home in Ava's room. I have been able to sit and read while Ava plays happily in her new babyproof space. I feel confident this number is going to be increasing a little more quickly in the near future.

2. Run a 5k

Hey, I'm pregnant - can I blame my condition for giving up on this goal this year? Ok, fine. I made absolutely no strides toward this goal before I had the bun in the oven.

3. Learn to do something new

Another fail. Haven't made any progress towards this one, except that I think I might be focusing on photography - pun intended!!! Ahahaha! Hahaha! Haha haha aha...ahem.

I'm going to start by actually reading my camera's manual (does that count as one of my books?!) and then start looking for some online resources to continue my education. If you have a good web site, book, or any of your own advice to share, please let me know!! (And I should probably get some lessons from my very talented sister Emily!!)

4. Get dressed. Every day.
This one might be the biggest FAIL in the history of...everything. Why is this so hard for me? I'm going to blame it on being homeschooled :)

I don't even know what I'm going to do to to improve on this one. I'm pregnant again, and my yoga pants are all I can fit into. I don't have a lot of money to spend on new clothes, and I'm terrible at shopping anyway. Maybe I'll dust off the sewing machine?

So there you have it, the public disclosure of my resolution failures. From now on, I plan on giving a monthly blog update in the name of accountability. How are you all doing on your resolutions? Here's to hoping you've had more success than me...

  1. Ok....wait a minute. Your siblings and friends were homeschooled and they all manage to get dressed! I think it's more of a mom thing....

    But you certainly haven't failed at learning something new!! You are always telling me about the new things Ava is teaching you! =)

    Enjoy that sweet baby and buy her some matching yoga pants!!
