Here it is a new year and just like every new year I am going to set some goals that I will never achieve. If I put them in writing then there is a slightly higher chance that I may actually work towards accomplishing some of them.
Here they are in no particular order:
1.Purge and clean my house We are truly just one pile of crap away from being on an episode of Hoarders. If they based it solely on my 8 year old's room, we are in hands down. I want to do a deep clean and purge of each room and then try to only have to do quick weekly clean-ups. But since I have 3 children and I hate to clean, this is a very lofty goal.
2.Attend one craft fair/boutique as a vendor I attend plenty as a consumer, now its time to get my stockpile going and be ready come Fall.
3.Eat healthier and work out sometimes I am setting the bar low on this one. I hate to cook, my family hates everything I cook and hauling 3 kids in and out of the gym is more of a workout then my 30 minutes on the treadmill is even worth.
4.Scrapbook 2011. I ordered this kit to help me get started. I figure I will do month by month and someday go back and work in each child's book individually. Again, a lofty goal since I have no where to leave things out that isn't accessible to sticky nasty little hands. And because someone is demanding my attention about 23 hours out of every single day.
5.Be in more pictures with my children. If you go back and look at their scrapbooks (who am I kidding the oldest is the only one who has one or more scrapbooks) you would think they are just well-dressed, color-coordinating motherless children. Sure some fat, sweaty lady with a crazed look on her face shows up in a picture every once in awhile, but not nearly enough to prove that they actually have a mother.
6.Take more pictures and get them uploaded and ordered in a timely fashion. This probably isn't going to happen since the baby's 6 month pictures turned into 12 month pictures and are still sitting on a CD under a pile of stuff somewhere in our Hoarder house. Did I mention that said baby will be turning 2 tomorrow?
7.Find a way to have the kids do more work around here There has to be some sort of incentive/reward/mind game out there will actually make my kids want to help. I am willing to pay top dollar for it at this point, if you know of something, please help a Mama out!
Well, I think that is enough work for one year in addition to all the stuff I have to do on a daily basis. You know like keep the kids alive, the house from burning down and let's face it all that totally unnecessary stuff from Target isn't going to buy itself.
Happy New Year Y'all!
