Smarter Living: Are you making resolutions?

So, we survived the visit from our in-laws, the two marathon days of playing Wii U and the Mayan non-apolocalyse. What does all of this mean? You've (almost) reached 2013...and yes, now you need to make those pesky resolutions.

What's on your resolution list? Losing weight? Reconnecting with friends? Spending less time on Facebook? Me? Well, you can head over to Mad Life and see one of my perpetual resolutions. Also this year, I want to read more, find more me time and more good, solid hours with my kiddo and husband.

Houston, I've got a problem. Look at that list...not only is it pretty vague, it all involves time - having time to do these things. What's a time-crunched resolution maker to do?

I must rephrase, rework, re-examine these...okay, how about this: I will read before bed at least four times a week, I will set aside one afternoon for a Momma-Kiddo hang out time, I will mark off at least two days a month for just family days, no other items on the agenda allowed those days.

That seems do-able, no?

Share your resolutions here...and ideas on how I can succeed at mine!

I don't make resolutions. This year tho I am going to start selling some crafts I make and see where it goes. Some will also be by donation as well. Good luck on yours and hope you have a safe and wonderful 2013.

I don't do resolutions, but my son and I are starting the GAPS diet tomorrow.  I have a chicken thawing right now to make a pot of broth/soup for this week.

 No, I never make them.
