New Year’s blabitty blahs.

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

My sister made me post some new year’s resolutions and I really have been planning on posting on my blog at some point these last FOUR MONTHS. Yee gads. Has it been that long? Sam and I were IMing back and forth on Facebook and she made me come up with a list that I promised to post on my blog. This has been Samantha approved.

This was my original one, that was going to be my only one, but she made me come up with some others:
survive until 2010

Here are some others that sprung to mind:
yell at Jeff less
… some people may say that this is the most impossible thing on my list… but those people know Jeff. 🙂
try and be more patient
more organized
write in my blog more than four times a year
… I REALLY want to work on this one
eat healthier
… I REALLY should work on this one
go out and play with Jack more
… this would be good for both of us
walk more

write a book
This is one that I would really like to do, which is why I was an English major, who started out as a journalism major. I wanted to write, but my mom thought I wouldn’t make any money just as a writer, so that I should go into journalism. I thought it was okay until the second semester when I realized that this is exactly what I didn’t want to do.

I would like to learn my ukulele.
This is one that I really want to do. I have the ukulele, I have the instruction manuals and the DVDs. Now all I need is the sticktoitiveness. Is this likely to happen? I doubt it, but that’s what you do with new year’s resolutions. Think big.

Floss and brush more.
This really shouldn’t even be a resolution. I should just be flossing regularly and brushing two to three times a day. But I don’t. It could happen though… I’d like to think it could.

What has happened to America’s Parents?

Have they all gone mad? I started this post before Friday when the bleeding started, and I’m even more furious now… which I wouldn’t think possible, but it is. I’m having trouble with my pregnancy and I would love this kid to pieces, and then there are other people that… well… I suggest having tissues with you. Or something to punch.

Mom tapes a pacifier to child’s mouth

Three year old dies in car accident, due to not being in a car seat — what’s worse is that after the accident, the family all posted weird rip messages to the baby on myspace.

Parents leave child is stroller while on Disney ride.

Vegan parents feed baby herbal tea, flax seed oil, fruit juices and soy drinks

Mother Microwaves Newborn in Microwave – this is on Snopes, so you have to go through the fiction stories to get to the true ones at the bottom.

Boy kept in closet for days on end, and dies in closet

Just because it seems like its a requirement of new years…

My long overdue resolutions:

  1. get more organized at home & work
  2. write more often in all my blogs
  3. play ddr more often
  4. get pregnant
  5. call friends more often
  6. learn how to play my ukulele
  7. complain less
  8. spend less money on frivolous things
  9. talk to library patrons more often to get an idea of programs they want
  10. clean my house and actually throw stuff away

Random thoughts today.

  • I love watching Jack dance.
  • If I could be anything I wanted, I would be these things:
    1. a terrific mommy
    2. a best friend
    3. a great wife
    4. a stupendous daughter
    5. a photographer
    6. a children’s/teens author
  • I really wish I had more time to read. I don’t get nearly enough time to read. I can barely read the two books I have for my two book groups let alone anything else.
  • I wish I knew as much about computers as everyone thinks I do. For example, last night one of the teens managed to hack the computer so that when one of us went on the Internet at a certain staff computer, porn immediately came up. It was quite disturbing for the staff member that it happened to, but the teen was quite pleased with himself. Sally was furious with him when she found out, so she was going to have a “talk” with him when he came in. I’ve never been so upset that I had to leave early. Anyway, this is not to say that I want to learn how to put porn on library computers, but I wish I knew enough to get around like that on the Internet.
  • I wish I wasn’t so socially awkward. I feel like I’m all thumbs when I try and talk to people. And yet I really do love being in the company of others. Which may explain my choice of occupation.
  • Here comes a reoccurring thought: I wish that I wasn’t such a slob. I really hate being unorganized, I sometimes think it makes me physically sick. And yet with all this sickness, work is a disaster, and my house is a wreck. I’m afraid to have people over. I continually think that we should go on TLC’s Clean Sweep, yet Jeff doesn’t think that would be a good idea. Plus I think I would be a little a lot embarrassed.
  • I hate that Jeff and I are perpetually late. We are never on time for anything. People are starting to make fun of us now. Especially family. Which hurts the most I think.

Monday, October 2nd, 2006

I thought that I would do a daily list of thoughts I’ve had through the day… I figure that since there are so few of them, it shouldn’t be too bad.

  • grant for teenage moms to encourage reading
  • paint a tote bag with a mermaid on it… (tee hee another craft with no time to do it)
  • learn how to play the ukulele I borrowed to add spice to story times
  • do some winter programs – gocks (goth sock puppets) and lego building competition
  • start working on infant story times (teen hee any excuse to play with babies)
  • finish Christmas shopping
