Resolutions

1. This year I will complete Project 365, and NaNoWriMo. Hopefully. This has been a resolution for a few years now! I will complete the photobooks I've wanted to do, starting right back with Rocket's baby photos.

2. This year I will watch less television. Maybe.

3. This year I will be a better parent. A more involved parent. I think I was so overwhelmed with our Little last year that I let my Rocket take backseat far too much and his attitude has to be a result of that.
3i. We are becoming a no yell household. No raised voices, no yelling, no screaming. The not listening is still a major problem but we are hoping that with calm, quiet voices explaining why we are upset, and providing immediate punishment will help. We are just yelling all the time and Manny is starting to join in! We need a calmer household all round.
3ii. I will enrol Rocket in some extracurriculars. He used to do so many but we had problems with his attention span so we cut them last year.
3iii. I will make his lunch for him every night even though he insists he can make it himself. Bread and butter is not a sandwich!!
3iv. I'm sure there are many more that I can't think of right now...I WILL try harder :)

4. I will somehow get my Lou to work less. How I will achieve this is still a mystery.

5. I will, I will organise my damn house! This is ridiculous!

6. I will stay on track and finish renovating this house, sell it, and buy our forever house.

7. I will stick to my photography. I've picked it up, and put it down so many times over the last few years. If I stick at it, I know I can be great.

8. I will create a routine for us. So that we all can achieve the things we want to achieve.

9. I will try not to let things overwhelm me and take them a day, and one job at a time.

10. I will be a better blogger. I have wanted to take this blog in new directions all year, but somehow it all ended up back at infertility. My life is about more than that! I also need to really reconnect with all the lovely bloggers I've come to know and love over the years. This is one resolution I believe I can really keep :)
