Chevy Chase addiction. And also, the week after Christmas is really busy. We lost all our tree ornaments in a freak Christmas tree fire. And New Years is coming up so I've been training to prepare myself to stay up and awake until 1 AM...or much, much later if I have a Red Bull.
With the New Year arriving so very soon I have a whole list of resolutions to make for 2011. This takes an exceptional amount of time as well since I want the list to reflect how ambitious, giving, energetic, creative, and caring I am. As I don't intend on keeping a single one of them it really takes quite a bit of thought to write that perfect list. But this year, I will totally keep one of my resolutions, Number 86: To create a beautifully decorated and creatively assembled scrapbook of our wonderful holiday season and to send a New Year's card to all my family and friends. These two are kinda a packaged deal. I figure if I can actually complete one of them, how hard can the other one be?
Come to think of it, I should really be able to check off Number 2: To do a load of laundry so our kids don't have to keep turning their underwear inside out. That should be a "doable" resolution.
2011 is going to be great! I am beginning to feel like this will be the year when I finally live up to my self-titled autobiography "Mom of the Year". I will pack healthy lunches everyday, remain calm when my children are having meltdowns at the check-out line, suggest reasonable well-thought-out solutions to fights which start with the words, I had it first!, vacuum everyday, and keep my car from resembling a nuclear waste facility by cleaning it out once a month.
Happy New Year!!
