Happy New Year

What a lame week!  A post everyday last week and then not a single word this week.  The truth is that I haven't been able to write a post as Max and I have been undergoing marriage counseling for his 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. 

My kids are husband are going to be so impressed.  I can't wait. 

Happy New Year!!

  3. It is perfectly acceptable to have your children just turn their underwear inside out. Just a little spritz and it's as good as clean! : ) And I'm not sure I will be able to stay up till midnight... someone may need to wake me up right beforehand!
