Keep on Top of Dishes and Laundry
These are the basics I mentioned yesterday that have "fallen by the wayside." My poor husband did his best to help out, but he couldn't pick up the slack on his own, especially since he's been so busy with work and Blimey Cow. This is going to be my main goal this month: set aside time every day to do what needs to be done in these areas (and other chores too, obviously.. these are just the two that are easiest to get behind in) - I've got to get back into the habit of keeping a tidy house. Maybe having a cute, newly organized Laundry Room will help with that!
Take More Pictures With My DSLR
I've been relying on my iPod Touch's crappy camera a little too much lately. While apps like Instagram and Hipstamatic Disposables are fun, I miss having high-quality digital images. And I miss stretching my creativity by slowing down and exercising complete control over the camera's settings. I'll still use the iPod for when we're out without the DSLR and for instagram sharing (#photoadayMay, anyone? @krftaylor). But I'd like to get back into the habit of actively seeking out photo opportunities instead of just letting them come to me and/or being unprepared when they do.
Complete and Submit Social Security Paperwork
I never did this last month... and I really need to change my name with the silly Department of Social Security. Again, I'm not sure why I've such an aversion to doing this!
Get Some Art on the Walls
Our poor walls have been barren long enough. I have several items that've been waiting to be hung for months. I'd also like to make 2 or 3 pieces of wall art to hang - I've got a few ideas rolling around in my head! I'll let you guys know what I come up with, for sure.
Implement a 10:30pm Internet Curfew
I need to get to sleep earlier and wake up earlier, and that's difficult when I'm just bumming around on the computer at the end of the night. I'll start a project in the evening and just keep working on it til the wee hours of the morning if left unchecked. Isn't that pathetic? I feel like a slave to this silly machine, when really it should be the other way around. Even as I'm typing this, I'm not sure how well I will be able to hold it up. But maybe this next resolution will help me cope with an earlier curfew:
Read at Least Three Books
I'm currently stuck in the beginning of two books right now, and I'd really like to finish both of them (one is freaking huge. Seriously. It's 792 pages, and it's non-fiction, so...). Perhaps I'll read more than three, but I don't want to overwhelm myself. Women's Wisdom, Catching Fire (I'm re-reading it out loud to Josh), and Blink are the three I have my eye on.
What are your May Resolutions?
