New Year's Resolutions

Now that I am finally starting to recover from the Holidays and get back into my groove, I hope to start blogging regularly again. It is strange how much I miss it. It is one more way to stay connected with people and still hide behind the computer.

All of my New Year's resolutions revolve around one thing: downsizing.

Downsizing myself. Once again I made the resolution to lose weight. Who knows it might actually happen someday. My true goal and motivation is to be healthy. For me losing weight is part of that.

Downsize my stuff. It is amazing how fast I accumulate stuff! Not great and wonderful "wow" stuff, just "stuff" stuff. No matter how many loads of stuff I take to Bethel (local thrift store) I seem to have so much more than I could ever use, need or want really. I must confess I am a pack rat. I get very attached to some of my stuff. I have all of my camp shirts. I cry when I think about giving them away. I just don't think I could do it. The thought of giving away any of my books, even the ones I only kinda like, is extremely hard for me. But this year I WILL downsize (just not those things)!

Downsize my schedule. I'm not quite sure how this is going to work... all my time is spent doing things I have to do. I don't have hobbies or go out with friends much or do anything "frivolous" that I could cut out. I quit my job at the gym. Those two hours a week were killing me! lol! But honestly tonight is the first night that I didn't have to go in and I feel wonderful. My kids are in bed and my husband is at Scouts. I have a whole hour to myself...and blogging is what I'm doing. I also need to cut out TV. I complain a lot about not having enough time in the day to get everything I need to done. Well that time is wasted on the TV. I only watch at night when Joey is home, but it is still a good 3 hours a night.

Downsize my debt. I really want to pay my car off this year. I don't know if that is reasonable or not, but I can try. Can't wait to get my tax returns...

Downsize my stress level. I figure if I can keep my other resolutions, I've got this one made!


  1. Yeah! You're back!
