Must mean it's time for "Resolutions". Every single article, news piece, magazine and blog I've read lately has done nothing but mention these hellacious formal expressions of intent. I swear every single year, on December 31st, I feel refreshed, renewed, reinvented and most of all, hopeful....and I go crazy with making resolutions for my self. Which is pretty damn silly if you think about it. I don't finish what I start. Ever. Ask the Z-Man.
Go ahead. I'll wait.
See? I can hear him now. I bet he told you these exact things: "She never ever finishes a project." "She has 12 projects started. 0 Finished" "She's the sexiest most amazing wife but can't finish a project to save her life."
He DID say I was sexy and amazing. Right?
Anyway, the point is, as I've often said....I don't finish many things that I start. I'm surprised my kids all came out in one piece for Gawd's sake. I think we've all seen examples of this just reading my blog. I've promised weight loss. I've promised recipes. I've promised laughter. I promised to bring you the "latest deals and steals". Sure I've given you some of these things...but not consistently. Hell, I barely post to this blog anymore. See? There I go again....not finishing what I've started.
So after all is said and done, it's a New Year and I still feel obligated to make some resolutions. To pledge my commitment to you and put them to paper so I have something to refer to and you can all hold me accountable (uh, yeah....we've all seen how well that works, refer to my "Commitment" Post from January 2nd, 2011).
This year, imma gonna (yes, you crazy literary, grammar loving people....I wrote "imma gonna" - because I CAN) make me some lazy mom resolutions! Resolutions even a commitment phobe, non project finisher mom like myself can keep!
*Tap *Tap *Tap.
Is this thing on?
Good. Here goes nothin!
I, Misha Z, resolve to:
~ do less laundry ( I can do this one easy....the Z-Man is my Laundry superhero...leaping over tall piles of laundry in a single bound)
~ cook less and eat out more ( I figure, if I cook less, I'll eat less, 'cause I can't really afford to eat out more - which might just help me lose that weight I resolved to at the start of last year. Right?)
~ drink more caffeine and more wine (I can soooooo accomplish this one)
~ not get stressed out about things. like living paycheck to paycheck.
~ not yell at my children as much. (this one might be tough)
~ kiss said children MORE. (this one is easy peasy lemon squeezy)
~ listen to my husband often. (there ya go Z-Man - it's in WRITING-but ONLY because you called me sexy and amazing) .
~ make lemonade (add vodka) and enjoy the lemons life throws at me.
and last but not least:
~ blog more. seriously. I will. maybe. probably. ok, fine. Sometimes.
So. What have you resolved? Got some good ones? I would really like to hear them. Here. Not on my Facebook. Not on my Twitter. HERE. On this blog. Fess up people. 'Cause at the end of the year, we're going to see how many of us held ourselves accountable to our stupid ass resolutions.
Oh...and just one more thing. I want to wish every one of my family, friends and readers this wish:
