This year I am trying out something a little different than previous NY resolutions…since I suck at them anyway. These are a little late in coming, as it’s January 6th, but…meh.
Give my kids more hugs. I feel like a guilty mother for even posting that. But it’s true, I feel I need to hug them more.
Since hubby is deploying, I have a few things I’d like to accomplish while he is gone as well that aren’t as important as hugging…
- Sort, Organize, Edit all 10K plus of my photos. This is a huge undertaking for me, and since all my photos are organized by month, I plan to start at the very beginning in 2007. I’ve done some, but not many. Just a fraction of the 10K actually. Once this task is done, hubby can add them into the Drobo servers so we can view them on the big 55″ tv.
- Finally complete the Disney World/Universal Studios scrapbook from 2010 and start/finish Disneyland 2012
- Make photo books from 2007-2013 (This isn’t as impt as organizing the photos, but it’s on my list to complete. If I don’t finish it…no big deal).
- Learn how to use my sewing machine. Mom bought it for me the day before Barry passed away, and I’ve never been able to use it. I have a mental block on it, and since it will be 5 years in October, I’d like to get past this. Maybe make a couple pillow cases for the kids, or a sundress for my youngest.
I’ve also made a vow with myself not to buy any new makeup this year that I don’t need. I have a TON of cosmetics, and I’d like to get through some of it. That doesn’t include something I run out of that I use constantly, like foundation or bb/cc cream or powder.
