I am ready to wash my hands of last year! Good Riddance! Don't let the door hit ya on your way out! Do not pass GO, do not collect $200! C-ya, wouldn't wanna be ya! Hasta la Vista Baby!!
It was a tough year for me. I look forward to 2011. I was gonna go all Oprah in my blog and talk about my feelings and such (you know, why I hated last year and what will be better this year) but maybe it would be better for everyone if I did not go into too many deep details.
Lets just do the Reader's Digest version here:
There were many, way too many, things I hated about my life in 2010. But I do understand that only you have the power to change what you do not like. Even though some of it depends on others, you can still change your heart and attitude about any given situation. So what better time to start with a new attitude then with a new calendar?
It's not resolutions. I SUCK at resolutions. That's for sure. But just fixing me. The list is long and not so distinguished of what I hate about myself. So I have promised myself to work on said list. I can't expect anyone to be happy with me if I am not happy with myself right? The good news is I already had a "me" moment and got a haircut!
I do really want to find "something" I am good at. I have been reading/checking out other blogs. All these people have a hobby. There are crafters and cooks and bakers. My friend has recently started painting and is even taking a class. I got nothing! I can change a mean diaper. I can even pour up a bowl of cereal with a baby on my boob. But talent? Talentless is more like it. I need to find my something. I really want(ed) to get into photography, but it seems that everyone is doing that. So I am still searching.
I have promised myself to work on fixing a problem. When there is one, fix it then. No sitting and stewing over it. That only makes it worse. Fix it, let it go, move on...something. But just doing nothing-that ain't right!
So there you have it, in a non glorious list. My things to work on. How I am going to try and better myself.
If I had to choose a "resolution" though.....
GET MY GROCERY BILL UNDER CONTROL
There I have said it!
I have typed it!
I have put it out there for all to read!
But is it possible? Can 1 mom really control the amount of money spent on food for 4 males? My gosh, I might have to cook more. What have I gotten myself into?
