I don’t do resolutions anymore — too often, they’d be left undone and become a list of guilt for things I’d wanted to accomplish, but never did. A few years ago, I wrote up a short list that I reaffirm every year — Resolve — and I recommit to it again this year. I didn’t do it all perfectly — my aim to be creative every day slid a bit, unless you count roasting coffee as being “Creative” — but I more or less stayed on track and overall am happy with how 2011 unfolded.

I hate “To Do” lists because I inevitably get side-tracked by a kid-related emergency or find something that needs to be “done” more than what I’ve written on the list. Then, at the end of the day, I see my mostly unfinished list and feel like I’ve gotten nothing accomplished at all — the feeling of defeat is a hard one to overcome and it really eats away at my motivations.
Today I’m going to make a different sort of list — a “Done!” list. I’ll be adding to it as my day goes on.

Okay, I admit I’ve been a terrible blogger lately — I’m sure I’ve excuses, generally do, but the truth is I was busy worrying about Swine Flu, what my follow-up ultrasound would show, dealing with two(!) different colds, building a robot dragon costume for #2 and trying to get my ass in gear for the craft fair I’m in on November 21st.
First things first:
- I am very thankful that when my wine glass spilled into my yarn / knitting project bag tonight that it didn’t cause any lasting damage.
- I’m thankful that I spilled the first glass from the bottle and not the last. Thankfully, I was able to refill my wine goblet.
- I’m thankful that, for once, my oldest ate something new (to him) without balking and actually enjoyed it. (more…)
