Always late to the party. That’s me.
It’s now January 11, 2010 and I have yet to put any real thought into my goals for the new year. In a sense, that’s good. It means I haven’t broken any resolutions yet.
After minutes and minutes of intense thought and prayer, I’ve come up with a few goals for myself.
1. Lose 10 lbs before Blissdom. Note to self: Stop. Eating. All. The. Cookies.
2. Learn to put on eye makeup. I’m deep like an ocean, no? But seriously. How is it possible that a pushing 40 year-old woman can’t put on her own eye makeup? Left to my own devices, I’d still be wearing 1982 sparkly blue eyeshadow with the matching eyeliner. Does anyone know any good makeup bloggers? Maybe she’d trade makeup lessons for spray painting lessons.
3. Be more purposeful in my blogging…Less “Jump on to check my email and get sucked into the blogging vortex.” More “Plan my time wisely and keep things in their proper place.” God and my family absolutely must be my first priorities. I am embarrassed to admit that there have been too many times when my online life has gotten in the way of my real-line life. I am making the commitment to my family that email, blogging, facespace, mybook, comments and twitter will all take a backseat to them.
4. Get back in the habit of rising before my kids, so there’s some quiet time before they start making a ruckus. I’ve fallen into the bad habit of staying in bed until I hear them squirming around, or worse, until they’re knocking on my noggin asking for breakfast. Last year, I joined the 5:16 Club and fell of the wagon no less than 15 times. So I’m dusting off my alarm clock and giving it another try. And another. And another.
Do you have any resolutions that you want to share? And seriously, do you know any makeup bloggers?
