Thursday Thoughts

When I was out on maternity leave, I tried to get a lot of blogging done and stock up on some posts.  Sadly, I only got thru the end of January done.  I've been back at work almost 2 weeks and I am quickly realizing that getting stuff done besides work and baby time is pretty hard.  I am not seeing as many blog posts in my future.  And my house is looking pretty tragic.  The Husband actually asked if the maid was coming sometime soon.....he is so subtle.

I realize that quite a few of my posts lately have been about baby stuff.  I promise to keep trying to mix in decor stuff, too.  Its just that gathering pictures and ideas takes up quite a bit of time and this blog doesn't make me money or smile at me on the changing table like some other things in my life!  I am going to cut the blog posts down to a few per week I think.

Lastly, I have been thinking about New Year's resolutions - I have never really made any before.  In general, I try to live my best life all the time so it seemed silly to set new goals or try to do more.  But this year will bring whole new joys and challenges, so I am making some goals this year:

- exercise twice a week
I realize this does not sound like a lot, but it is realistic for me and my time

- eat more cleanly
Try to eat less processed foods and stay away from crap like donuts.  Because I don't really like them that much anyway

- stop being so cheap
It has come to my attention lately that sometimes I am cheap to the point of not being able to enjoy things.  Like nice dinners.  And new dresses that are not on clearance.

- stop being so hard on myself
So the rug is dirty.  So what.  I never put the baby directly on it anyway and isn't spending precious time in the evening with her more important?

- keep blogging and keep creating
I don't want to lose my mojo, and I really love crafting things.  I have been doing the occasional painting for a friend, and I really want to do a play kitchen for Baby H for Christmas next year, so I might need to start on that early!

Do you guys have goals for the year?
