Could It Be Time For New Years Resolutions Already.....

I have not made any New Years Resolutions in several years.  I have made them in the past, but hardly ever followed through, so I gave up for a while.  So, for next year I decided to come up with one New Years Resolution and post it, so maybe I will actually hold myself accountable.....just maybe???????
My resolution is to be more organized and keep the house more picked up.  This is a big one.  I thought by staying at home with our daughter that I would have all the time in the world to keep the house picked up, organized and cook (maybe even bake every once in a while).  Wrong!  In my defense I do spend a lot more time at home now and eat/cook three meals at home (vs just one when I was working), which gives me a lot more opportunities to "mess up" the house.  Since we have decided to put our current house on the market I have spent a lot of time de-clutternig and cleaning out is amazing what you find.  Why did I keep all of  my college text books?  And all of my Birthday, Christmas and any other occasion cards from way back when?  Going forward I am going to take a hard look at things before I store them away.
I am going to make one other goal (I don't think I will call it a resolution).  I would like to participate in at least two triathlons next year and maybe a half marathon (but I am not committing to that one just yet).  I really enjoyed the triathlon I did this year and I would like to do that one again plus one more.

Let's see where this will take me.......

  1. It's so good to hear that I'm not the only one that has trouble keeping up with housework. I feel like my house is always a mess and when I do clean it, it's right back to being messy in no time
