Resolutions / Mantra….

So I am relatively new at this whole blogging thing, but I thought I could give it a shot. I have so much floating around my brain it would just be therapeutic for me to write it down somewhere.
Besides, being much cheaper than going to a therapist I’d love to eventually be able to help other people going through similar situations that I go through. Now before someone starts thinking to themselves, “What made her such an expert at life?”
The answer? I am not an expert at life. I am only 33, but I can speak for what I have gone through and how those experiences have moulded me to who I am today. As a woman, mother and wife I am still a huge, imperfect work in progress. Everyday gives me a new insight on life and I try to make sense of it all.

So here I am at 8:41 PM on January 1st keeping my first resolution: Starting my blog. I still have a whole 364 days to keep the other ones, but already I am feeling like I am making some progress!
This coming week I solemnly promise to:
1) Register for a full workload of college classes (AKA get my ass back to school)
2) Quit smoking (OUCH.. Smoked my last cigarette at 12:10 AM)
3) Get started on my diet. UGH.. I’ll miss yummy food 😦
4) I’ll wake up earlier so I can get to work earlier so I won’t get nasty looks from coworkers. (Long story…)
5) I’ll try to not lose my patience with hubby when he starts extolling the virtues of whatever his new fad of the moment is….
6) I’ll spend more quality time with Boogie as opposed to smothering Eli with affection.
7) I’ll start cutting the umbilical cord with Eli and start to understand that in order to grow up to be an independent member of society Mommy needs to start to let go.. At least a little..
8) I’ll call my mom, dad and family more. Calling my mom at midnight to wish her a Happy New Year only to find out that I completely forgot that she had surgery on Friday did not go over well. Especially not when you are the only child to a very dramatic Colombian mom.
9) I’ll be a better wife. (Another long story)
10) I will let go of the past and look towards the future.
11) I will not let negative people or negative moments sway me from my goals, mission and path.

I am pretty sure that there are more, but with kids screaming in the background remembering them now is not going to happen!

Phew … (big smile on my face)… One post down…. Many more to come!! 🙂
