One for Me Linky


I have been thinking about my resolutions. Have you? I know that some people think that resolving things at the New Year is silly, but I LOVE it. Last year, I resolved to stop drinking pop (soda, coke, soft drinks...depending on your location! LOL!) That has been a staple resolution for about 5 years. I try, I fail, I retry. This year it actually materialized when the hubs quit smoking. In November. I count it as a victory. 

I was drinking more than three pops a day. Like Sonic Route 44 Coke first thing, then a can or two or four. depending on my stress level. 

For years I had suffered from caffeine headaches when I didn't have something by say, 10am. How messed up is that? 

I also resolved to try all foods that I had previously said I didn't like again. I realized that many of those foods were the victims of my tastes as a child. I was pleasantly surprised that I like mushrooms. I am also MUCH more easy going in restaurants. I still don't like olives. Sorry. Those suckers taste like dirt. 

This year I have a few as well. I plan to check in with y'all monthly on my progress. Motivation, right? 

I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics today to talk about my big one. I will tell you my list and then for the grand finale, my 1 for Me. 
  • Lose 10 pounds and keep it off. I lost about 10 this year when I quit drinking pop. 10 more would be great. 
  • upgrade fixtures in our house. I LOATH our dining room chandelier. 
  • have more "me" time. I am always nicer when I am able to be alone. Are you that way? It could just be a bubble bath or window shopping. 
And now the big one


Be better at birthdays. 

Seems simple, right? I am HORRIBLE about remembering to call/remembering at all/planning ahead/sending a card/making it a big deal.

I actually spoke to my sister this year on her birthday. Didn't wish her happy birthday. 

I weighs so heavy on my heart. I guess the biggest thing is that all of the people I neglect on their day, are great to me on mine. 

Maybe I will do something like this board. It could fit into "me time." Yes?
