Mid-February. Just days after Valentine’s Day. Less than two months ago we all celebrated the beginning of a brand new year and made some resolutions to change our lives for the better. I resolved to…er…um…what was that resolution again?
Being a working mom of two kids, I can barely remember what happened last week, let alone at the beginning of the year! I have short-term mom memory, making it impossible to remember something for an entire year. Not only that, but think about the discipline it takes to vow to make a change for a year. That’s 365 days! Yikes!
So I’ve resolved to make mini-resolutions. (Haha) This month I’ll start with a Weekly Resolution, eventually working my way up to a Monthly Resolution. Lord knows, I have a few areas in my life that need some improvement! I also want my goals/resolutions to be a bit more attainable than the lose weight, save money, yadda, yadda we hear all the time. I’ll set realistic resolutions with measurable goals attached to them.
Well, here goes: My first overall resolution is to spend more quality time with my family. To achieve this, I’ve already started my “one hour of TV a day” rule for the week and, so far, so good. I think I’ll keep that this week. But, wait – does that include weekends? Um…maybe not. I set the rules, so I can change them, right? How about this…one hour of catch-up on TV shows, but I’m allowed to watch a movie with my family? Sounds fair to me. Wish me luck!
