Also, hi! Happy 2011!
I've decided that I actually want to set some goals for myself. One of the big ones is to get better at taking people as they are. I think this is important.
The friends to whom I've told this have laughed and said, "Yeah, let me know how that one goes."
But I'm going to try.
I'm also going to create a To-Do list sort of page on the blog, so I have something concrete - that I can't crumple up and stick in a pocket and ultimately lose - to refer back to. I always feel good when I check items off a list. I just suck at making the lists in the first place.
So I suppose another resolution is: make a damn list already.
Also resolved: clean up language in front of the kid. Jordan now mimics everything. I really don't want him running around exclaiming "Jesus Jordan!" and Dammit! This might be the hardest one. We'll see.
And I want to dress more professionally for work.
Sophie, you'll be particularly happy to hear this - I got the Ikea closet! for Christmas! It got delivered last week and Nick finished putting it together at about 9 pm last night.
It's fantastic. And it has two mirrored doors. So now not only can I see more of my clothes, I can also see how I'm dressed head to toe before walking out the door.
Thus decreasing my likelihood of realizing I'm dressed like an asshole once I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror at work.
So, to sum up:
- Take people more as they are.
- Make a damn to-do list.
- Decrease profanity in front of the kid.
- Dress more professionally or at least like less of an asshole for work.
How about you?
