I don’t really believe in making New Years resolutions. In my opinion, it’s just setting yourself up for failure that will gloom your next New Years, and since next year, God willing, I won’t be pregnant, I plan to celebrate with a drink or two and don’t want a rain cloud hanging over me. With that said, I carefully resolved to do a few things this coming year.

1. I plan to use all my kitchen appliance at least twice. If I do not, I must forfeit them to Goodwill. I own too many gizmos and our small mudroom/pantry/laundry room/water heater closet/recycling center is about to explode. It would hurt me greatly to turn over my bread machine, food dehydrator, spare blender, or extra food steamer, but for the sake of nesting, I might just do it. More than likely, I’ll find time to use them instead.

2. I want to blog more. I go through phases when it’s fun and other times it’s a chore. I waffle over the type of blog I want to maintain. When I started, I had the intentions of attempting a more professional site, like Dooce. Maintaining a more professional blog requires a certain level of creativity and inspiration that you may find dwindle to performance pressure, or in my case, you may discover you lack it all together. Since my readers are mostly friends and family, I could angle it towards my audience and give up on the idea that the world would be interested in my life. At times, I’ve even thought about shutting it down, but that would be admitting defeat-I’m not sure to what, but I’d definitely be a loser.

3. We’re going to save some money. These past couple of years, we’ve been spending money like drunken sailors. This year is going to bring lots of expenses-home renovations, a new vehicle with four doors, and a birth of a child.
