NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION

I haven't been all that big on resolutions. I seem to have pretty high standards for myself already and I can usually stick to them pretty darn good (helllloooo I did lose all of my 70 pound baby weight from my first child! All of it and then some).

But this year, this year seemed like a really good year to make a few resolutions and stick with them.

Resolution #1:
Make the most of our situation.

What is our situation? Well my husband has officially quit his job at the newspaper and returned to grad school full time. This is scary for a number of reasons: 1. We are apart 2. We are living off of one income 3. I'm pregnant and only getting fatter.

With those scary reasons being said, I couldn't be more proud of my husband. His previous job was not good. He wasn't going anywhere and the paper he worked at was really struggling. He wasn't happy in his job AT ALL. It takes a lot of guts for someone to do what he is doing. I support him 100% in everything he does because he is always such a hard worker and has nothing but good intentions for our family. Onward and upward!

Resolution #2:
To stay positive no matter what.

See the above explanation for Resolution #1

Resolution #3:
To go to church more

I am a religious person, but not enough to share it on my blog in verses or comparisons. I think my relationship with God is more private than sharing online. But, I have noticed how I miss having a special connection that I only seem to get at church. Therefore, I will try and go to church every Sunday with Caderyn or without him (sometimes a girls just gotta go alone).

Resolution #4:
To read more.

No problem here. Since Christmas break I have already plowed through three books. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Killer, The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and last night I started the third and final book of The Hunger Games series, Mockingjay. Once this book is finished I plan on heading to the good ole' library and stocking up on some more good reads.

Resolution #5:
Spend more time with Caderyn

I find that too often I leave him to play by himself while I work on a house project like cleaning or organizing. This all can wait until after his bed time. He and I need to read more, cook together and color lots and lots of pictures. He will be my only child for only a few more months and I want to soak up every second I can with him, just him.
