Resolutions

In which I make a few New Year’s Resolutions, so that I’ll have something to laugh at myself for by the end of April.  Or possibly sooner.

1) Finish a cross-stitch project this year.  A real one, for me, in a frame.

2) Scrap at least 10 pages a month.  (A bit ambitious, but otherwise will be crushed under a large pile of baby pictures, and will have to dig Piper out with a snow shovel.)

3) Eat in such a way that I’d want my daughters to imitate me.  By the middle of this year, they’ll be on solids.  By this time next year, they’ll be on 100% table food.  I want them to learn good habits from the start.  (Not that I subsist on Doritos and Mountain Dew, but I do get a little sloppy when I’m just cooking for myself.  Too many convenience things, not enough vegetables.  You know the story.)

4) Get more fresh air.  With two infants, and winter, and having been on bedrest and thus out of the habit of taking walks, I’m not getting out enough.  Piper and my waistline would both benefit from more time outdoors, and the babies aren’t made of spun sugar.  I can bundle them up on decent days and take them for a little stroll.

5) Spend less time online.  Oogha.  It’s such a time-suck for me.  Let’s say less than an hour per day, aside from pumping time.

6) Keep up with my CME (continuing medical education.)  I had to do 39 hours between December 27th and 31st this year.  That’s a bit excessive (and I have 50 hours to do by June 30th, rather than December 31st this year, due to some boring requirements that I won’t get into.)

7) Clean one room per day, to keep the house in decent shape.  My previous method (clean the house in one fell swoop) is nigh unto impossible with the twinks.  Good opportunity here to listen to Alistair Begg’s podcasts.

8 ) Consider and start working on Christmas crafts for gifts by the end of January.  The possibilities are endless.  Current frontrunner – hand-stitched Christmas ornaments.  I’m thinking one for everyone, plus a donation to Heifer project, and call it good.

9) Read through the Bible in a year.  I’ve done a full read-through before (over the course of a couple of years) but not in a while, and if I can’t get to church until RSV season’s over, I want to be doing something.

10) Floss.  Twice a day.  I hate it, but if you take care of your gums, they’ll take care of you.  hee.

That’s an even ten.  That’ll do, pig.  Will report back in late January with an update.
