New Years Resolutions

It's that time of year when, most everyone comes up with new years resolutions.

Are you?

I don't know, I guess I could try to watch more TCM and PBS. It would be difficult but I could try...

In all seriousness though, there are a couple things I could work on. Off the top of my head, spending more time with my daughter just playing. I actually do spend a fair bit of time with her, but it is doing home work and cleaning her room or running errands. These are all important, but before I know it she won't want to spend any time with me, so I better store up a back long now to get me through those lean years.

Also the husband could probably use a little attention. We have never been the kind of couple to have date nights, even before the kid. I can see now how they might be important though so I'll try to get a couple of those on the calendar. Even after 15 years and all my complaining about him and us and the house I love him and gotta maintain it.

Finally, for myself I think I need to take better care of me. I don't mean work out and eat right. Cause let's face it I'm never going to do that in a significant way. I mean do more just for me stuff. Like go to the movie alone in the middle of the day, get a facial or a body scrub, even meditate. Basically things that are just for my own enjoyment.

Hope you all take good care of yourselves too in the coming year and of course keep coming here and seeing my ramblings.

P.S. If you're wondering about the picture with this post, it's me in my best Mad Men Garb. It'll be back this spring and I'll be ready and waiting.

Happy New Year!

I realise my resolution just adds up to play with the kid, play with my husband, and play with myself. Not setting the bar too terribly high , am I.
