At the beginning of 2013, I sat down to reflect on my life and think about what I wanted to do to better myself.
I was beyond the pedestrian resolution of losing weight. I was into some seriously deep sh*t.
I thought and I cried and I emoted and I finally came up with the most perfect resolution.
In 2013, I was going to make my bed every day.
Yes, that's right. Before 2013, I was lazy. I would sometimes pull the comforter up over the rumpled sheets and toss a bunch of pillows on top, but that was it. I subscribed to the why make your bed when you are just going to unmake it in approximately 14 hours.
But I committed. And I achieved. With the exception of sick days or days where the temperature dipped below acceptable Floridian levels. Sometimes, I didn't get around to making it until late afternoon (or evening...) but I did it!
For the first time ever, I kept my resolution and it felt amazing!
In the spirit of setting attainable goals, I have come up with my 2014 resolution.
In 2014, I will shower every day.
Before you call the hygiene police on me, I do shower on most days.
But there are the mombie-tired days.
But there are the water freezes immediately after leaving the shower head days.
But there are the Mr. Yoy is out of town and who else is going to make a comment about my stench days? Certainly not my children. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
I have put this out there on the internet for all to read, so it must be true. You must keep me accountable. If you see me looking busted, please, gently remind me of my resolution. Or throw a bar of soap at my head.
Happy New Year to all of my friends, family, and readers. I hope you have a wonderful (and clean) 2014!
