I'm back! I hope you had a blessed Christmas season and a wonderful New Year celebration!
I haven't ever been a big "New Year's Resolution" kind of girl. But I saw a little formula for resolutions on Pinterest (where else?) that I thought would be fun to do with my kiddos as they got older. So I decided to give it a whirl myself for 2014.
A bad habit I'm going to break:
I have lots of bad habits...but raising my voice is one that needs to stop, pronto
A new skill I'd like to learn:
I am going to teach myself to knit. I can crochet...knitting can't be too much harder, right?
A good deed I'm going to do:
I'm going to work more on correspondence. I love getting something other than a bill in the mail, and assume others do as well. There is something so much more personal about a handwritten letter than a text or email.
A place I'd like to visit:
Easy one: home...the good ol' Pacific Northwest
A book I'd like to read:
This one is a hard one to answer. I love to read, and read all the time. I just started Miranda Hart's book (hilarious, by the way!) but haven't decided what I am going to read after that...any suggestions?
A new food I'd like to try:
I feel like trying new foods isn't a challenge for me, but I'd like to learn to cook new foods at home! Including good Indian food and Mediterranean food. This week's menu includes me attempting lentil salad...we'll see how it goes!
I'm going to do better at:
Keeping myself well-kept. Better nutrition, better haircut, getting dressed in nice-looking clothes...when I feel better, I can be a much better wife, mother, and friend.
