Last years resolutions.

Before thinking about my new years resolution, i thought i would take the time to see if i have accomplished last years.

  • Have more me time out of the house away from kids
  • Stop stressing about housework
  • More patience with the kids
So, how did i do?

I accomplished getting out more. I normally take saturdays to go out with a friend or just me time. I will go to a book store and browse. I will grab lunch with a friend and so on. I felt like the kids were old enough that i could be away and daddy could handle it. He has and i feel more like me by getting away and doing what i want. I wished Alex and I had had more dates this year....i think we had maybe 5 tops!!! That isn't too good!

I have stopped stressing about housework. Not all the time, there will come a time when i start getting cranky and clean the house to the way i want it. But usually, there are clutter piles here and there. One thing though that has helped is we put the kids in the same room this year and made one room a play room. So, that has helped a lot with toys, which is mainly what bothered me. I hated having toys all over the living room. I will still yell about toys...hey, i am not perfect.

Patience with the kids.....that really depends on the day. Some days are good and some are bad. I think that is normal. At home i think i have better patience, but in public no. I have to high of expecations on the way i feel they need to act they are out. That my patience gets thin. So, that may be added to the list this year of things to still work on.

Overall, 2009 was a great year and i think 2010 is going to be an even better year!
