With the turn of the clock from 11:59pm to 12:00am, the New Year was welcomed and praised. Another year, another chance to make something of yourself, another year to accomplish the resolutions that fell to the way side so miserably last year.
Our schedules are quite hectic the first week of January, so the 1st of January doesn’t seem to get the accolades it deserves. I remember a few years ago the sense of apprehension and excitement I would get for the 1st of January, but unfortunately the feeling hasn’t yet made its way around.
Resolutions, Smesholutions- no just kidding. Between my husband and I we pretty much put on a thousand kilos between January 1st and 7th. We have gone on a “healthy kick” (which consists of me wanting McDonald’s for every meal, followed by a donut and a piece of pizza). He says I am only craving the food because I know I can’t have it, but it is as if McDonald’s KNOWNS I’m not eating there anymore! (On a side note- McDonald’s have a new ad campaign where they have pictures of fries at bus stops, no words, just fries…OF COURSE)
So, my smesholutions are as follows:
1. Lose Weight (chart topper every year…..at least I’m consistent!)
2. Spend more time with the husband
The husband and I do A LOT together. We attend the same church and are involved in many of the same departments, his friends are my friends, his family are overseas so my family is his family, we go to the same gym, we drive to work together but I don’t feel like we really spend time together. Here’s to more dates/breakfasts together!
3. Catch the Baby Bug (Hopefully)
When we were first married I wanted 10 children immediately. After waiting a year, I felt the baby ship sail away for a 10 year world tour. I love children, don’t get me wrong- but committing to having your own is so final and daunting! After 5 years of marriage I’m hoping the boat decides to dock sometime over the next 351 days.
I am truly blessed to be able to live the life that I do with the people I love!
Here’s to the next 351 days…let’s make something of them!
