I’ve knit 4 hats since Christmas.  I am in serious hat knitting mode.  They are completely portable, non-thinking, yet creative projects!

Well, now that I have the hats out of the way, I can get on the resolutions.

I always think that I great resolution for me would be to be a better Breakfast Mom.  I should be the kind of mom that gets up and makes warm milk and pancakes for her agents before they travel on to school, shouldn’t I?  But this would be a silly resolution for me as I can’t even seem to do it once to see if I would even be good at it.  Let’s face it, I must be realistic with my resolutions and there is no way I’m ever going to be able to do Breakfast.

I supposed I can keep on listing what my resolutions are not going to be as that would be a lot easier, but that list would be never-ending so I will move on to My Major New Year Resolution:

I heaby resolve (and not revolve as Agent B keeps saying) to be a better 3 to 6 p.m. Mom and Person too.  That means that I am going to get as much stuff done while staying sane at that time of day as humanly possible.  Right now, as I write this, it is 3:12 so I am already sticking to it!  Between 3 and 6 a lot of things happen in my house.  At 3:30, Agent J arrives home. At 4:10 Agent B arrives home.  At 5:15 Agent K arrives home (unless I am the carpool driver in which case I am out of the house from 4:45 to at least 5:15).  At 6:00 IHA arrives home.  I also have to serve snacks, make dinner, return phone calls, check my e-mail, sort the mail, and help with homework in that time.  Usually what I do is surf Ravelry and Bloglines.  Well, I do that in between the other stuff but I want to do more.  I want that time to be more useful and fulfilling.  I think that it means planning ahead with menus for dinner and spending less time surfing knitting sites and more time with the Agents.  Don’t worry, I’m sure I will let you all know how this goes. Also, any ideas would be appreciated.

As to other resolutions, I have a lot.  I need to exercise more, well actually, I need to actually be exercising to exercise more, right?  I need to eat healthier and shop healthier.  I want to buy less “stuff” and waste less “stuff.”  I think it would be so cool to be the type of family where people say about us that we never waste anything.  I need to spend more time with my parents.  I need to be better at commenting on other people’s blogs and replying to comments made on my blog.  I need to keep up with my Etsy shop more!

Ok, well you get the idea.

Off to get snack ready,

Have a great afternoon everyone!
