I’m the type of person who has to write things down if they’re ever going to get done.
Sometimes I’m the type of person who writes things down, and then loses the paper, and then never does those things. (Clearly they weren’t that important)
I’m also the sort of person who makes a lot of New Year’s Resolutions, and then does… hmmmm… 40 percent of them. So we’ll see how this goes.
#1. Make Babies. Obviously, this is kind of out of my control at this point. Science has taken over, and all I can do is take my medicine and then lay on an exam table where some doctor I’ve never actually met before get’s all up in my business while Mike holds my hand. But I feel pretty confident that it’ll happen soon. Babies everywhere, 2012.
#2. Don’t Be So Fat. This is both in support of #1, and also sort of laughs in the face of #1. Pregnancy = weight gain, everyone knows that. When the baby wants chocolate cake or french fries, or I don’t know, both at the same time — you eat it, and you like it. But until said baby starts demanding delicious foods (wouldn’t it be great if I just craved apples, and bran muffins?!) I need to lose as much weight as possible so I can have a healthy pregnancy/baby/body.
#3. Floss. I’m a terrible flosser. I always have been. I blame my mother. Smoop actually flosses regularly, but when I was little she had the dentist put some awful-tasting sealer on my teeth, and I never had a cavity. Not one. Until I was 28. So I really need to get on that. Also, I’m actually afraid of my dental hygienist, and don’t want her to reprimand me anymore.
#4. Take More Pictures. My awesome mother-in-law got me these amazing add-on lenses for my camera phone. I also have two SLRs collecting dust in my closet, and a really nice point-and-shoot just laying around, because I use my phone for everything now. But I love being behind a camera, and I have all the time in the world — so I’m going to try to do one of those 30-Day Photo Challenges and try to make my own Bokeh kit.
#5. Make More Things. I have a whole board of DIY projects I’ve been wanting to try, but I’m lazy and haven’t attempted too many. I also think a lot of them require a sewing machine, which I don’t own, or even really know how to use, so I need to learn how to do that too.
Uh… I’m sort of out of resolutions. So, I’m chubby, I can’t sew, and I need to floss more.
I guess that’s not so bad.
I’m sure there are more and I can’t remember them, because I wrote them down, and then lost the paper.
