End of the Year Resolution Update!

Last year I made a few resolutions.  As expected I failed miserably (again).

-HAVE A BABY - This is my number one goal, but one that I have pretty much no control over.
  • I gave up on this one.  But that is okay, because sometimes you have to let go to move on.
-Lose 10 lbs
  • I actually did lose 5-10 lbs this year.  But then I gained it all back... and then some I think.  I don't know, Michael won't let me have a scale because I won't promise to only use it once a day (scales intrigue me and I tend to weigh myself before and after meals, before and after I go to the bathroom, when my hair is wet vs when it is dry.  I just REALLY like weighing myself.) and I have not been to Goodwill for awhile and remembered to weigh myself on a few different scales so I can see how much I might, possibly, probably weigh.
-Lose 20 lbs
  • Obviously a fail
-Lose 30 lbs
  • Epic fail
-Drink 2 glasses of water a day - Okay I am never going to get to 8 like I am supposed to, so two is a start.
  • Does the water used in making Dr. Pepper count?
-Keep my house clean(er)
  • I have actually been doing pretty good at this!  It isn't perfect, and probably never will be, because I am a messy person and I serve 3 meals a day, but it is very rarely embarrassing to have people stop by :)  I am going to give myself this one!
-Read the New Testament
  • I am about halfway through, but I guess there is still theoretically time to finish before the New Year.
-Read the whole Bible
  • Nope.  Obviously not, and I don't think I have time to finish this one.

I am probably going to have the same goals next year, maybe with a few new ones and getting rid of one or two.  

Did you make resolutions?  Did you keep them?  Any plans for next year?


  1. I hate new years resolutions. I mostly hate them because very few people actually accomplish them, and then they are depressed come the end of the year.
    I think I will make a couple/few this year, though.
    Get Gideon basically reading by Kindergarten (not novels, necessarily, but a little less of a struggle than present)
    Have my business to be AT LEAST entirely self sustaining.
    Become versed enough in my dulcimer to play Christmas songs, next Christmas.
    Learn More Sign Language.

    It may be redundant... but I may do a blog about this after new years. ;)

    1. I don't take them to seriously. I have a REALLY REALLY hard time being self-motivated to do anything, so I fully expect to fail.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs

- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
