You can see my previous Resolution ramblings here. I considered just editing that post, but decided why not do a whole new post. Oh the creativity!
Okay, first I wanted to mention that 2009 was supposed to be my Year To Get Organized!!! Well, I tried hard and made progress (see my organizing tag in the sidebar), but I get such small bursts of time, it will be more like a Decade or Century To Get Organized. So this year I will continue on that journey. But, I would also like to add a little decorating this year. I threw up some art on my kitchen walls after Xmas (hopefully I'll post about that soon) and hubby did a great job hanging up our backlog of children's portraits on another wall, and it just makes everything perkier, happier, more of a home.
I am also trying to add two new (tiny) habits as this new year begins, inspired by all the new-year-posts around blogland. I don't know, they go against my lazy tendencies, I'm not sure how either will get off the ground, but here goes:
(1) make my bed every day
(2) wash the high chair tray after each meal (rather than before the next one as is my current habit)
I thought (1) would be a good model for L, who should start making his bed as a chore soon. Plus that's what normal people do. And then we don't have to remake the whole bed every few nights when the sheets and blankets have fallen completely off the bed and it's 11pm and we're exhausted. And (2) is just logical--wash it immediately and food doesn't stick and the tray is always ready if I need it in a hurry.
Finally, I'm not loving my word of the year: aspire. It's vague and ultimately uninspiring. I'm now thinking about the word grace. I need to give myself grace, extend grace to others, ask for and rejoice in God's grace, etc. So I'll be trying that word on for size for awhile.
