Goal Check-In

It's the last day of February.  How is everybody doing on their goals for this year?I have been slacking.  I'm not proud of it, but it's the truth.  Sometime in the last month, my mojo seems to have taken a vacation.  I think my discipline went with it!!So here are my new short term goals to get me back on track to my 2012 goal. 1.  Stop playing Angry Birds when I know what I should really be doing.2.  I have a DVR.  I need to use it....more

A New Year with the Old Me

Well, here I am almost a month into the new year, and I'm only now starting to think about what my resolutions should be.  Ah-ha!  First, I should endeavor to stop procrastinating.  That one's easy.Shouldn't I also think of some things to improve myself?  I really want to be better this year than I was last year.  Not better at anything in particular.  Just better.  Hmmm, how will I go about becoming better?  While I'm working that out, I'll go ahead and add that I should try this year to be more specific.  Generally speaking....more

And it's What I Ate Wednesday time, so that means I just have to share my eats with y'all....more

Don't Roll Your Eyes At Me! and Other Parenting Resolutions for 2012

Rumor has it that 2012 is upon us. While I was trying to figure out what my resolutions or goals should be for the year (think: reading, organization, weight), I realized that there are some things I’d like to add to and or change in my parenting. Some are goals -- actual things to be done at some point. Some are resolutions -- concepts that either need changed or accomplished. Either way, while there aren’t many, these four parenting goals should keep me busy this year....more
