One of my New Year's Resolutions was to dust off this blog and start writing on at least a semi-annual basis. And I'm already three days in and I'm just now getting around to it. I suppose three days into January is better than three months into the year.
For some reason, I have a good feeling about this year. When the new year rolled over I felt something different than years past. I'm not exactly sure how to explain it, but I just have a good feeling for 2013. (Note: I totally just wrote 2012 and had to fix it. It's gonna be a while before I get used to writing 2013. Haha!)
There are a few things that I really want to get done this year. For one, I'd like to take the kiddos to Disney World. I've wanted to for years now and it's just never been possible. I see a lot of our friends (with and without kids) taking trips there and it's just impossible for us money-wise. I'm hoping that I'll be able to get a job working at the front desk of Ricky's work so we'll be both attributing to the household income this year. That is the main thing that I would like to do this year. I think taking a Disney World trip at Christmas would be so awesome for the kiddos. I want to take them before they get too old for the "magic". I know all kids still feel the magic, but it's still different with every year that passes.
Second, I'd like to get started with a work-out routine and stick to it. Last January, Ricky and I started P90x and did pretty well with it until we started getting sicknesses (no doubt brought home from the kiddos in school) and then I broke my toe in May and it was all over. Two years ago, Samantha and I joined the gym where we met Aimee, our Zumba instructor. Since last January, I've gained 30lbs of the 40lbs that I lost over the last two years. I've still got 10lbs until I'm back where I started so I actually don't feel like a complete failure. (Which is surprising.) I'd like to get started doing something before I gain those 10lbs back, 'cause I know they're going to creep up on my like the last 30 did. Unfortunately, I am also 30lbs heaver than when we last started P90x so I don't know if I could even keep up with something like that. Perhaps I'll look into something less strenuous so I can get back to where I feel like I can do it.
I have some more resolutions, but I think those two are the biggies. Of course I'm also resolving to be a better mother to the twins, to have more patience when it comes to the twins and Ricky, and to keep up with the housework better. Though that last one is also three days late. My house is a mess. But like I said, that's not one of the biggies.
