Re-evaluations, NOT Resolutions
I don't particularly like the idea of resolutions. I don't disagree with them, but I like to make them ongoing.
All through the year.
That is pretty much how I roll. I am constantly re-evaluating my life and what I want to do with it. I am still deciding what I want to be when I grow up, you might say. And I envision that I will still be doing it the day that I drop dead.
So, basically, I have thought about some of the most recent things that I have been mulling over in my mind. These are the things that I will share with you. (And did I mention that I am a woman of lists? One by my bed, one by the bathroom sink---not even kidding, one in my daytimer, on my calendar, and one in my head at ALL times. Is it any wonder that I have insomnia?)
The latest list of re-evaluations:
*Keep my business---i.e. the theatre going---and try to not freak out so much about it. *Get my next season of plays and musicals picked THIS season-----trust me, its harder than you think! *Try to get to bed by midnight----and yes, this is hard for me----I am a night owl. *Keep exercising at least 4 times a week. I already do this, but am expanding to include yoga now once a week. *Try to get that other 10 lbs. off----seriously----I don't take this lightly---I lost 14 lbs. from Aug. to Nov.----and have gained back about 2 lbs. during the holidays.....aarrgghhh. *Try to train my pups to not bark when someone comes to the door----we started this about two months ago---but it is hard to find the time to keep working on it! *Be better about volunteering for helping those in need in my church. I am terrible about doing this, if I know that it is early in the morning, or takes too many hours in the day----I have so much to do, and I wimp out. *Try to keep my house cleaner----ummm----maybe I should check into a cleaning service once a month? Oh, so tempting. *Continue reading more. I love to read as much as I love movies (which is my addiction, by the by) and I have stepped it up this year, by TAKING the time to read each day----even if its only 1/2 hour in the morning and a 1/2 hour at night. *Be a better and more attentive mother.......er......ah.......I asked my young son about this one-----if I needed improvement----and he answered that I could do that by only making him do ONE chore every day instead of two before he can have computer time..... Minx. Seriously, I should hang out more with him----more quality time----as he is always with me, but I am doing my theatre thing and don't always pay attention to him----did I mention that he is a great kid? I know....you've heard it before. *Be a better wife. What? Where did that come from? Was that my alter-ego trying to get a word in edgewise? Whateveh.... Although, I guess it wouldn't hurt to send him notes and do mushy things once in a while-----yeah----I can do that. And maybe not nag about money anymore...................(tweet, tweet, tweet)...........NAH-----thats NOT going to happen. *Write two posts a week in my blog----and get those blasted Memory Mondays back! Geeze! Why can't I seem to get it together?!! *Get back to reading blogs at least two times a week.....ok....well, shoot for three and see how it goes.....
There you have it.
That's all she wrote.
Been there, done that.
How about you check in with me daily and see how I'm doing?
