Ah, the Monday after New Year’s. The day when most kids are headed back to the classroom and parents head back to their offices (whether or not they are in their PJs). The holidays are past us, we’re scraping the bottom of the cookie tin, and wondering if we really are going to use that Wii Fit to lose weight (I wouldn’t know, we’re Wii-free). But let’s grab another cuppa coffee/tea/chai and head into the new year with gusto. Yes, let’s Work it, Moms!
Here are my hopes for all of us for 2009:
1] That we only forget to make lunch for our kids once a month rather than once a week, prompting a mad dash to the grocery store or scrounging for lunch money at the bottom of our purse;
2] That we get two nights warning before the big science fair project, book report, or historical diorama made entirely of uncooked pasta noodles is due;
3] That we remember to remind our kids to brush their hair everyday before we are four miles from home (I forgot last week);
4] That we only get one last minute report, grant, or budget to balance at a time;
5] That we manage our internet addictions to Facebook, Twitter, etc;
6] That we only continue to progress towards our career goals in this scary economic time we are living through;
7] That we only get sick when our partners are home and can make us grilled cheese with tomato soup (I guess we can’t get sick, eh?);
8] That our dogs don’t eat our favorite and new shoes;
9] That we don’t beat ourselves up too much this year;
10] That our families, friends, loved ones, and we stay healthy, safe, and near by.
What topics would you like to see explored here this year? Have any goals you want help with? Or add your own hope for all of in the comments! You know you want to avoid that to-do list for 5 more minutes.
