Historically I have not been a person who makes resolutions. Besides weight, I never know what to resolve. But this last year (2011) I made a resolution. I thought I had blogged about it but alas could not find a blog post about it. It was to reduce my dependence on my then current job. The State of Me gives you a glimpse of my life at this job. I am happy to report that halfway through the year I was able to completely reduce my dependence on that job and quit and am now happily working two jobs for the same amount of hours and more money. A resolution that I was able to fulfill. It feels good.
So I've decided to declare another resolution this year for 2012. To clean my house and keep it clean. This one is very overwhelming. My 10 years of sleep deprivation have gotten me to the point of having no energy to do anything that's not essential which would be taking care of Lilyana and working. I am working on resolving the sleep issues (so maybe I have more than one resolution this year) and hoping to get the house to a point where I can feel comfortable having people come over. With which room shall I start? The office where I spend most of my day? The dining room because we need to take the tree down anyway? The kitchen because it really should be clean? The bathroom because again it really should be clean? The options are endless. I'll keep you updated on my progress.
I know my resolutions aren't glamorous. You won't be seeing me in a bikini this summer. But they're important to me and make me feel better about myself as a person and as a mother. Are you making resolutions? If so, what are they?
