Resolutions -- 2018


In keeping with tradition, I will make 10 resolutions for myself and 5 with regard to my children and never look at them again until nearly 2019. Here goes nothing. I have a lot of big changes coming this year, so, unsure as to what this will look like.

10) Drink 4 glasses of water a day.

Same as last year, only one glass less. I have to drink more. I was really bad with this this year. Luckily, as last night was New Year's Eve, I've already drunk my 4 glasses today, lol, and I'll still need more.

9) Go to the gym and/or run consistently 3-4 times a week.

I want to keep this one too. I need to keep doing this.

8) Stop biting my nails

Keeping it.

7) Actively work on local and state campaigns in swing states for the interim election.

2018 is a big year, politically. I want to make sure I help.

6) Buy that house and decorate it and keep it up as if it is my home.

I'm not great at interior design and I'm not great at cleaning. We are trying to get our own place and I have done most of the heavy lifting there which has been really hard. I have to finish that task, get the place, fix it up, move, and then decorate it and keep it clean like it is a real home that I love and live in because that's what it will be.

5) Make $75,000 and/or get a full-time position somewhere.

This is a huge stretch. HUGE. I'd be happy with $65K again. I'd be over the moon with $70. I'd also be happy if I could grab a full-time job at a place.

4) Publish 50 pieces and teach a full course load all year.

I want to keep up with writing at least a little and not let go of my teaching either.

3) Get my passport and Portuguese citizenship (if not for me, at least for the girls).

Ugh, grown up paperwork, blah. Too hard. Must do.

2) Get through my medical stuff and come out the other side just fine.

I have a lot of crap I don't want to do this year that I have to do. It's going to take a while, some back and forths from the hospital, a long recovery and subsequent procedures and it's all very glamorous and awesome. So, I have to get through that.

1) Plan and execute this vow renewal for our 10-year anniversary.

So we kind of sort of got married in five minutes while our preemie twins were in the NICU. We had meant to do a nice shotgun wedding before their birth, but they came early. Even without that complication, I was never going to have a real wedding or wear a dress or have a party. And I want one, kind of. And we have made it 10 years, through twins and the financial and housing crash and through all the things. Of course, on top of buying a house and going down in medical flames, it is a bit much this year, but I think we can do it!



For my kids and I, I resolve the following:

5) Get them to stop fighting all the time.

Lol. Every year we try.

4) Homework and studies every day, even in summer and on weekends.

When we do this, it's great, but when we have all the time in the world (ie: vacation), we slack off because it's just easier for me not to make them do it. If I were consistent, it would be easier.

3) Save $10,000 each for them.

Since I totally took the money I've saved for them thus far and put it into the house. I figure it is also for them, right? But I need to get that egg back.

2) Play a game with them every day.

I can do better with this. I can try harder. It's just five minutes. SAME I WILL DO THIS THIS YEAR.

1) Have them do chores every day.

Chores every day, because people do chores. This is going to be hard to start back up because I had them doing them and then I stopped and now they'll be like RWAR NO, so I really have to work at it.
