I know that you are probably mega confused by the title. Right? Afterall, it is almost February. However, with all that January brought, I knew that keeping any sort of resolutions would be near impossible, so, even though I am six-ish weeks late, I have decided to make my new years resolutions now.
1. Get up and move! I know nearly everyone makes a promise to themselves to lose weight in the new year, and, well...I am no exception. I have gained what I have called "the Newlywed ten" and I would like that to come off. I also have been seriously lacking in the energy department, and I know that working on my fitness will bounce me right back! Last week I went to the gym three times and I hope to do the same this week.
2. Stop being so lazy! I have seriously got to stop this. I am even so bad! I do things like ask my husband to grab the remote on his way to the couch and grab me some water when I actually sit closer to the kitchen. I will not become my mother on this! I am going to try and pick up the house more and when I need something I will get it for myself. I am sure my husband will appreciate this very much.
3. Finish my semester with a bang. If I get A's on my last two classes, I will graduate with honors. I so need to do this. So, I need to buckle up and do the work. The first week of the semester I did great! Now...ehh, I need to get back on the study train.
4. Get moved! I know that I am supposed to leave in June. Where to, you might ask? I HAVE NO IDEA! And, if you couldn't tell from the all caps explosion, it is starting to freak my planner self out just a tiny bit. I know where we asked for, but that means next to nothing sometimes in the military. So, I am stuck in this for right now.
5. Volunteer more. I signed up to work the huge Special Olympics event on base here, so that is a start. My last weeks here, while I am not working, I am going to bake cookies for the troops that are returning from downrange. The USO puts that on and I have always wanted to help. When I get back to the states, I plan to increase my volunteering with animals (I previously helped with the Kentuckiana Pug Rescue, which is where I got my puggie baby from). And, if able to, I hope to work with the spouse group on base. I tried to here but, well, they make it difficult for the working spouse.
6. Become more domestic. I have absolutely no crafty skill whatsoever, and while I am ok in the kitchen, I need some work in the wifey department. At least I am new at it, so I have a little bit of an excuse, but I would like to hone my cooking, decorating, and crafty skills.
I am sure I will come up with more later in the year, as I always do, but, other than maybe learning some sort of hobby, right now that is the dream.
