Do you make New Year's Resolutions? Some people do, while others don't bother. I usually don't. I find I disappoint myself because I can never keep them. But this year I am going to try again. I am really serious about this. I've been feeling lately as if my life is out of control. Maybe by writing this down I will be making a promise to myself to at least try.
1. Stop eating junk food. Oh how I love my junk. But I know it isn't doing my body any good. I am trying. Last night I had a caesar salad for dinner. I didn't finish it all, so that's my lunch for work today.
2. Be more organized. I used to be so organized and now my life seems to be chaos. I have to get myself back on track. How could I be so organized at 12 years of age and so out of control now?
3. Keep my house clean. I am so tired when I get home from work that I sleep rather than clean. But now the house is totally out of control. I don't want to come home and see clutter all over the place. So that is a biggie to me. I'm trying a new plan this year so let's see how that goes. I can take only baby steps with this because of my health issues. My body won't let me clean for hours on end. But doing something is better than doing nothing.
4. Getting to places on time. It is the one thing that drives Joe nuts. I am always late. Late to work, late to church, late to doctor appointments. I am going to try hard to be on time.
So there you have it. Are these things doable? I think so. I hope so. I keep saying that when I retire in a few years and have more time that I can do these things. But then I think of my dad who died of cancer two months before he was going to retire. We aren't guaranteed anything or any amount of time here on earth. So I need to start now.
That's my rant for today. Thanks for reading.
