It definitely rained throughout the night after we washed the car.
After the rain came the wind and with the wind came pollen-pocket-ball-thingees (that may be their technical name, can’t remember exactly ;) ) which got stuck to the car. Now the car is dirty on the outside again. Awesome.
I was devestated to the point of crying a little upset.
Because I am having major writer’s block at the moment and words to make this post entertaining fail me, I’m going to post my New Year’s Resolutions.
What do you mean it’s March and I’m late? It’s still a new-ish year. I can still resolute. Or whatever the short form or resolutions is…
So here they are:
1. Lose weight.
This is a fairly straightforward one. I am achy due to being overweight and I miss being super skinny. And I miss my clothes- I had tons of amazing, cute, trendy clothes! Now I wear the same 7 shirts over and over. I could go buy more things, but wouldn’t it be nicer if I just lost the weight? I’m not going to say I have a weight-loss goal in mind (which I really do) because 1. You don’t need to know how much I weigh and 2. I don’t want to set a specific goal and put more pressure on myself.
2. Make healthier choices.
We have tried to incorporate all sorts of smart decisions into our daily lives. For example, we park as far away from the store as possible so we can have no excuse but to crawl exhaustedly back to the car after shopping for seventeen hours exercise. We also eat as much homemade food as we can. We try to have a lot of fresh vegetables and make our own breads and pastas so that we get the yummy stuff we love with less of the fat and preservatives!
3. Keep the inside of the car clean.
So far (meaning for the past two days since we thoroughly cleaned the car), the inside of the car has remained spotless. We emptied the trash both days and picked up the girls’ toys and put them back in the basket. I love having the car clean and it makes me feel good to get in and not see disaster all over.
4. Try as many new types of coffee as possible.
This one may be a little silly, but… Hello, my name is Caroline and I am a coffee addict. I love different kinds of coffee and I would like to learn more about coffee beans and roasts. I want to have a few go-to brands (now, it’s Folgers or Dunkin Donuts) and expand on what kinds of coffee are best to make mochas, etc. with.
5. Get up before the girls in the morning.
We love our sleep, but there is no reason we can’t start our morning routine before the girls wake up. The problem is that they have been getting up between 5:30 and 6:30 every day recently. I like to shower and have some coffee before the girls need breakfast. I enjoy my alone time with Terry!
6. Get my own domain name and get my blog hosted.
First of all, I don’t know if that is the right way to say that because I am the least tech-savvy person you will ever know. I have enough trouble turning on my laptop. Second, I love WP.com, don’t get me wrong. I just can’t deal without being able to download the templates that I really need want.
7. Stop using the cross out feature.
Who am I kidding? I think that it’s the most entertaining thing since sliced bread ever. You love me for over-using it, don’t you? Oh, you don’t? Well you at least love me, right? Good.
I think that’s about it. That’s more than enough to keep me busy beyond the kids, housework and laundry.
How are you doing with your resolutions? Did you even make any? Are resolutions even worth taking the time to make?
