I've been thinking about this list since mid-December. It's like when I was back in school (before I started skipping classes and dropping out) and I had to have full and correct answers with supporting evidence. I am so sad and can't shake being a goody two-shoes sometimes :)

I've loved this year that I've had with my son. He's a happy, playful little boy. He's learning so much every single day. I know it will be hard for me to leave him, but...

I resolve to finish updating my CV and start looking for work.

In order to do this, I will have to wake up before Elliot (who usually sleeps in until 9:30, how incredibly lucky am I?) I will have to be more organised, and I might just have to...

Get over my fears and start driving on my own.

Ages ago I went to the doctor who told me that I was officially overweight. This scares me. When my father was visiting in December, he was so overweight, he had to stop every few minutes to catch his breath. He'd get winded and dizzy and need to sit down. I fear that he won't be alive for very much longer even though he is only 59 years old. I don't want to miss anytime with my own son if I can help it. Bring on the rabbit food, because...

I resolve to lose 15 pounds.

Though I've mentioned her before, I've only written once about my mother on this blog. This is an issue that is weighing me down, and I need to talk through it some more, get a different perspective. Otherwise my relationship with my mother will end up suffocating me.

I will be less private and open up more about what is bothering me, especially to those who I care about and who care about me.

And because it can't all be work, work, work, I have a ton of books that I own that I've always intended to read, and never have, my last resolution is to read more books (from this collection). Also, I made a yule log over Christmas. It came out terribly. I also resolve to be less critical of myself and carry on with my baking, even though I've had a few disasters.


  1. i resolve to be less of a lurker :)
    Don't feel so bad about baking disasters. I made gravy last night that turned out like paste. Maybe we can share recipes that are semi-disaster-proof :)

  2. Good luck with your resolutions :-)

    I never make any, I just figure if I'm going to change something, why wait start now and don't think about it too much

    Plus if I make promises to myself they are to easy to break.

  3. These are great resolutions. Can I get personal? What is your fear of driving?

  4. I'm afraid of driving too. I'm 29 and have only had my license for about 2 years now. Did you drive in the states but are afraid to drive over there, or are you like me?

    Your resolutions sound wonderful. And remember, a baking disaster is only a disaster if you burn down your house. Anything else can just get thrown away and forgotten about ;)

  5. Good luck with your resolutions! Opening up to people was tough for me to do for the longest time, but my husband is good at encouraging it!

  6. I don't know if I could ever become accustomed to driving on the "opposite" side of the road.

    Good resolutions. I've been writing some painful posts lately. It's hard to do.
