Okay, so I'm not big on resolutions but given that 2010 sucked, a lot, in a variety of ways, I've decided to make 2011 better any way that I can. And just how am I going to do this? Well first of all, I'm going to get back to blogging on a daily basis! Starting today. I know, I know, resolutions are supposed to start on the first but given it felt like a creature from a Stephen King novel had burrowed itself into my brain and I vomited like it was 1999 on the first? I was in no shape to blog. Then on the second I felt so good not being hungover that I tackled a number of household duties and prepared for my mother's visit the next day.
Which leads me to resolution number 2: quit procrastinating!!!
What I was preparing,on January 2nd, for my mother's visit, was her and her husband's gift. Yes. I'm aware that is late. However I knew I wouldn't seen them until after Christmas so I left it. Longer than I should have. I leave everything longer than I should. And then when I finish whatever it is I left, I feel so good. You'd think I'd learn but much like hangovers, I'm not a real quick learner of the whole action and consequence thing. Slow slow learner, in fact.
So there it is, blogging and no more procrastination. Of course I have plans to return to the gym too. Who doesn't? Given that I was blessed with PMS during the yuletide season I'm sure my intestines are currently coated in chocolate and the Type 2 Diabetes fairy is chuckling with glee at my future of finger pricks (as opposed to the kind I'm used to dealing with, heh heh) and sugar spikes and drops.
As luck would have it though I purchased a lovely new pair of elastic waisted pants just prior to Christmas and they are divine. I'm wearing them right now. And just to the left of me is a small-ish pile of wrappers from some after dinner chocolates I was enjoying. Again, reference the slow learner paragraph above.
So tomorrow it is off to book my son's birthday party, drop off some donations and tackle some work projects and laundry. And with any luck at all? No one in this house is on short supply of clean underwear because who am I kidding?!
Happy New Year!
