- Read more. My sister in-law just lent me this,
and said I HAD to read it. It took me 2 weeks to even pick the book up, but once I did I could not put it down. It was such a quick read and the whole time I was dying to know what would happen next (so excited for the movie in March!). Up next I want to read the other 2 books in this series, along with The Help and Tina Fey's Bossypants (I've been dying to read this one for some time. The woman is hilarious). Any other book recommendations would be welcomed!
- Be more patient and play more with my daughter. Yes, she is so difficult sometimes I want to jump out the window. But I have got to be more patient with her, no matter how difficult she is. She cries and cries over every little thing, and where I used to get upset at her and tell her how not to act, or put her in time out, I am going to take the advice of my cousin and just show her love. It sounds so simple. And I feel like such a bad parent for not having used this tactic most of the time. That's what new beginnings are for though, right? I have taken this different approach a few times already and the results have been awesome. Also, I told myself that every time she asks me to play, read, etc. I am going to drop what I am doing and oblige her. This has also happened a couple of times just in the past 3 days, and every time I wanted to make an excuse as to why I would have to read or play with her later. I'm shocked at how much I brush her and her brother aside. I'm going to try really hard not to do that anymore.
- Lose 10 pounds. Because it wouldn't be January if I didn't want to lose some sort of poundage.
And now that I'm finished with this it looks like a list of resolutions. Man I hate that word.
