Janauary 2009 - Part 1

Today is Nathan's second birthday. As I write this, I'm think of what was going on 2 years ago at this moment. From what I can gather, I was probably unconscious, drugged up because I'm not half as tough as I thought I was (that labor really hurts...). But later this evening I'll be thinking of how wonderful that little boy was once he finally came out.

Right now though, I'm just wishing he'd sleep because there is an enromous piece of pie waiting for me when he finally starts napping. I'm not starting resolutions until the 5th because I feel major lifestyle changes always begin best on a Monday. That, and I have plans this weekend involving eating out, cake and pie.

About those resolutions though. Here they are, in as concise a way as I can present:
1. Get healthier - start drinking water again, cut back on my caffeine consumption, at least 1 exercise session per week, make more positive food choices.

2. Get organized - get rid of the clutter, keep the desk clear of stuff that doesn't belong on it, put my stuff away. The main goal here is not have to spend one day per week cleaning up so that I can acutally work. I also want to live in a house where if someone comes over or we want to sell, I won't be scrambling to get the house cleaned up. I need it to be at least passable.

3. Make and stick to a workable schedule - All too often I'm flying by the seat of my pants, never really planning what I'll do. I have to be realistic and flexible for those days when Nathan won't nap or go to bed timely. I also have to plan some time for me - not working or taking care of Nathan. There's got to be some time I can plan to do something that I want to do.

That's it. I don't think I'm going to ever get that pie though.
