No, not talking about the carpet cleaner :) I'm happy to report that I've made progress on a few of my New Year's resolutions.
1. Keep from looking like a hoarder by putting away clean laundry IMMEDIATELY. 
We finally got our mountains of laundry put away one day while my parents were graciously watching Violet. I know - just how I wanted to spend the few moments I get alone with my husband. But it had to be done. And you know what? Our room feels HUGE. Even with the lights off. And I sleep better at night too. Now we just have to keep at it!

2. Read more books for me. 
I've always felt kind of guilty doing this. When I'm with Violet I feel like I should be devoting all of my attention to her. When she's napping or in bed for the night I feel like I should be cleaning or blogging or spending some quality time with my husband. But I really missed reading and I decided that a) it's good for Violet to learn to play independently some of the time, and b) it's good for her to see me reading for fun, and c) the dishes will keep (or the Hubster will do them *wink wink*)

3. Turn 30.
Well this will be happening in about a month and I've been waffling when the Hubster asked how we should celebrate. I didn't really want a big party and considered going away for the weekend, but in the end I think I'd just like a nice weekend stay-cation. Time to read, blog, clean the house, relax, spend time with my husband, and just be. You don't get much time to just be with a toddler around. I was thinking maybe one evening the Hubster and I could go out to a romantic dinner and another night maybe out with the girls? Or maybe just sleep. :) Either way, I think I'm going to ease into the big 3-0.

As for the other resolutions? Still working on those...



  1. Totally agree with you on the first two - I've even gone so far as folding each load of laundry - and it's made a world of difference! And none of it ends up wrinkled! And as for the books, yup - we need to read more books - not just stuff on the internet - and great point about it being good for Violet to see you reading - for fun! Have a great day!
