Ah, here comes 2012.  Time marches on and the year is going to move forward, whether or not I keep up with it.  It always feels like I have the best of intentions and then I forget or get lazy and nothing gets done.  Then I end up disappointed with myself and/or the situation and just get discouraged and so then nothing gets done because I'm just too sad to do anything!  It's like a catch 22.  I, however, have decided that after watching my mother-in-law chase after my kids with more energy than I had, I needed to do something.  (My comma use is horrible, so please forgive me my English degree'd sister's-in-law.) (and I don't think "degree'd" is even a word.  Since it is my blog, I can make up words.)  AAAAnyway. 

I thought I would share with you a couple of my resolutions.

res·o·lu·tion  (rz-lshn)n.
1. The state or quality of being resolute; firm determination.
Maybe it would be easier if I call them "Firm Determinations" instead of resolutions.  :)
1. Lose some weight.  Exercise, eating right.  I'm at my heaviest weight and it's so discouraging.  
2.  Make more dinners. We eat far too much quick foods.  
3. (this one will make sense if you've seen any Mormonads.)  I wrote this one down on the chalkboard in my kitchen.   "Patience: use it before you lose it."   I need to work on this one a lot because I often feel so short tempered and I hate that about myself.  
4. Blog more.  Keep in contact with family more.  

So, there you have it.  Call me out on them.  :)

Thank you for posting this! You are amazing and I love reading about your "going-ons". (How's that for a new word?) :)
I'm cheering for you!
