New Year's Resolutions are LAME.

...only because I never keep them long. I know. Don't judge. (But if you do, remember you have to be perfect the rest of your life. *wink*)

The only reason I say this is because I have made more regular blogging a New Year's Resolution. Among about ten others. I have been so stinking busy lately (see previous post) I have turned into one of those people I loathe: People who are too busy being busy while being busy. Yep, that's me.

I need to organize my time, better. I need to prioritize. But I also need to take time for me. "Me" time has been very scarce. Lately, the few precious hours I have for myself have been spent cleaning my house, because it seems I've been too busy to do that too. ;-) I may be a stay-at-home mom, but lately, the "stay-at-home part" has not been happening. RUNNING AROUND LIKE CRAZY FROM ONE THING TO THE NEXT has been happening.

I hope everyone is enjoying the Holiday spirit. Mine was just about killed because of all the running around I was doing, so a few days ago I slowed down, put on the Christmas music and made myself sit in front of the Christmas tree for about 15 minutes (yes, I watched the clock-- I totally suck) and re-assessed what I was doing. Whatever it was, there wasn't room for celebration and joy and things that were important. I've been counseled not to run faster than I am able and pace myself, and I have not been heeding those warnings.

So, I've made some resolutions. Written down some goals. Tossed out the frivolous stuff. Wished there was more frivolous stuff to toss out. But I've started to hammer out a plan, and I want to be more organized with my time and stuff, this upcoming year. 2013. Wow. 2012 went by almost faster than 2011. Is that how it goes? The older you get, the faster time flies? I don't like that, not at all!

So, bring on 2013. No, I am not in the camp that believes the world will end on December 21st. I think it will be a day much like Y2K, when everyone suspected everything would cease working and go dark. And nothing happened. At least, that's what I hope.

Are you all making your New Year's Resolutions??
