Resolutions - 2019

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 2020. 2018 was a very big, very stressful year. Most of the resolutions will probably remain the same and I'll just try to keep them this time.

10) Drink 4 glasses of water a day.

Same as last year. I didn't keep it up last year, and I think it would really help me feel better.

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

I want to keep this one too. I think I can do it this year.

8) Stop biting my nails

Keeping it. Every year I try.

7) Do something at least once a week to help those in need, or resist politically.

I'll try to keep track of this with the activist check-in posts.

6) Fix three things about the house

There is lots to fix. Last year I did the deck and the roof and the gutters. This year, maybe the driveway, the toilets and the bathroom grout? Maybe the lawn? Don't know!

5) Make $90,000 and/or get a full-time position somewhere.

This is a huge stretch. HUGE. I'd be happy with $80K again. I'd be over the moon with $85. I'd also be happy if I could grab a full-time job at a place. But, of course, that means I have to apply.

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

I'm going to keep this one. I got to 45 pieces, and I think I can bump it up to 50.

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

Since I didn't do this last year, I'm going to try for it again.

2) Start a vegetable garden and keep it alive.

Way easier said than done.

1) Read 12 books.

My reading has taken a nose dive in recent years. I'm averaging 2-3 books a year at this point. I'd like to bump that up. It means I'd be relaxing a little more, too, which is always good.



For my kids and I, I resolve the following:

5) Get them to stop fighting all the time.

Lol. Every year we try.

4) Sign them up for separate activities they might enjoy.

One is really into basketball, maybe dance for the other? Sign them up and take them to their practices, etc.

3) Save $10,000 more each for them.

I'll be happy if I can manage 5K each, but 10 is the goal.

2) Spend at least 10 minutes with them, doing something they want to do every day.

It's amazing how hard this is to do.

1) Have them do chores every day.

Chores every day, because people do chores. But not my kids. LOL not my kids. Going to try this again this year.

  2. Hey everyone!
    I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after few months of breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. My boyfriend of 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.
    I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again...
    All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any marital, relationship or divorces problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you.
    Here’s his contact.
