New Years resolutions……

I don’t normally make them. I’m not to good at keep them but this year I’ve picked two that are a challenge but either need to be done or I want to do. So here they are…….

1. Make a new recipe every week. Can be anything from baking, to cooking, to crock-pots, to drinks. Just something we’ve never tried before. I get two magazines from my mama with good recipes in them and just think of all the ones out there in web-land. I can do this…just takes planning….planning, hummmm….I better work on that one too.

2. I will fold and put away the socks and underwear each time I do the laundry instead of waiting for the basket to be full and everyone is out of them. It’s really a dumb issue, what’s so hard about doing them each time…I don’t have a clue but it’s something I need to get a handle on and just get them done.

You know….have you ever decided today is laundry day and just know there’s clothes in the dryer from the last laundry day but you just didn’t get them out and so you go to open the dryer door and you find it empty…you did do them? It’s like Christmas…a present to yourself. I love that and get so excited. Doesn’t take much to get me excited does it?!

I have one more but it’s not a resolution and I’m not quite ready to share it yet. Got some work to do on it and then we’ll see. It’s a very scary one for me and I will need each and everyone of you to help me with it.

So there, those are mine…..you got any you want to share? I’d love to listen and see.

I have a houseful today, all my kids are here so it’ll be a nice day for them and since it’s suppose to warm up we can go outside, that is unless Hannah’s ears are bothering her. Both her and her brother are back on antibiotics for ear infections. This is Hannah’s third go around and Justin’s second.

Up date on my sister….. She home, no she shouldn’t be but the hospital says times up, they were suppose to send her to a nursing home for wound care and 14 days of antibiotic IV but one nursing home said closed due to the flu, one said we don’t do wound care and the other was full so they sent her home. Home is not where she needs to be, she still so sick, weak and unable to care for herself. She does have a nurse that’s suppose to come in every other day to do the antibiotic stuff and check her wound but there’s so much more she needs. I’m hoping her family can take the reins and do what’s needed but it’s a household of men that aren’t into that kind of stuff. Mama and daddy will be stopping by daily to see if she needs help, I’ll go in the evenings and see and I do have training with wound care and 12 years in the nursing home but I’m still not a nurse. We will just keep praying she can keep healing and I’m sure she has many visits to the doctors coming up. Please keep praying for her and her family.

Take care my friends, I hope you have a great day today. God Bless each and every one of you. Thank you for your kind words and support. I think blog land is pretty darn awesome!!

I love your resolutions! You'll have to keep us posted - I don't think I could ever get the socks matched and put away every time. Why on earth is there such a mental block with that task?!
