resolutions!
sure, I've got some. mostly the "improve myself and my quality of life" ones, you know the drill. But I also wanted to pick one that would keep me on my toes all year; keep me with those resolutions in mind in March, and June, and November.  So I'm giving up soda for the year.

This will not be hard for me. 

I don't love soda, and I don't have the Diet Coke addiction that seems to be plaguing every other person on the planet. But I do drink it, whenever we go out and at parties and stuff. But why? I hardly even like it. The only hard time, I suspect, will be when we go out to pizza. Because what pizza is complete without a root beer? 

my "big" resolution is to get organized and stay that way. Since we went through the boys room like a whirlwind back in November that room has stayed tidy. And I've been doing a darn good job keeping the living room's flat surfaces clean of "stuff".  (the kitchen table, i still need to work on). Today I've been organizing in my bedroom, which is the Master Pit of All Things That Don't Have a Place.  

They shall, from henceforth, have a place.  

I don't have much choice, really. In February one of my sisters is coming to live with us for 4 months and then I'm having baby #3 in March/April (march, please march) and we are simply going to have to keep this place organized if any of us want to be sane in our 2 bedroom apartment. 

So there it stands! Wish me luck!  What are your resolutions?

I refuse to say outloud (or put into print) what my resolutions are because, undoubtedly, someone will make me accountable to them and I can't handle that sort of pressure!!!
