I sometimes aspire to be a daily blogger, since blogs with regular posts are my favorite to read, but perhaps this isn’t the year to make that goal. This is the year I become the mother of FIVE. Crazy.
Instead, my one and only resolution is to vacuum my entire house at least once a week. That’s it. And no, I wasn’t even coming close to accomplishing that last year, and yes, it’s gross.
My children’s resolution (I made this for them) is to quit being slobs. We are trying to accomplish this by using a new system of checklists, which they’ll ultimately be rewarded for completing, and which are ridiculously specific. For example, “Eat breakfast. Put dishes in the sink. Put cereal and milk away.” You might think “Eat and clean up breakfast,” would be specific enough, but in my experience, you would be wrong. I’ll let you know how it goes.
