happy new year

New year's resolution #1. Be more punctual.
umm okay, so it's January 3rd. so sue me.
Another one of my New Year's resolutions was to try to waste less time blogging.
So I took a mini blogging break over the holidays.
Not that blogging is a waste, but I do spend a bit too much time reading what often feels like too many blogs each day.
Before I know it hours have gone by.
So I'm going to try to keep it to just my favourites and I will be lurking a bit more and commenting a bit less.
maybe. we'll see.
Anyhow, I also want to read more novels this year and less time reading "how to be fabulous- glossy magazines."
I want to drink less coffee (just finished a tall latte 5 minutes ago, while reading a glossy magazine)
However, "glossy magazine" was a health, body and soul-ish type mag, so it's not thaaat bad.
Oh and the Latte was a soy latte.
Exercise more. what else is new? story of my life.
Did hit the gym this morning so that's a plus.
But I want to not just go to the gym and do cardio and weights, I really want to try to start doing Yoga again.
Must get centred. ommmm...
Watch less television.
Hmm, we'll see how that goes once new episodes of Prison Break start up again...
I really want to take Guitar lessons this year.
I have the guitar, but pretending to be Charo from the Love Boat after drinking one too many glasses of red wine doesn't really count. Must find professional to help me with my strumming'.
Spend more time with girlfriends, and not just the ones with kids, I love doing girlie things with my pals, and I miss it.
so JB if you are reading this, and I know you are, let's plan another girls only night sometime soon, 10 spot for some pampering and chit chat??
Be a better time manager.
I love to shop daily for my groceries and pretend like I'm actually living in Europe and not North America-home of The Super Centre and Value packs of thirty frozen chicken breasts.
But to tell the truth, it gets pretty tiring trying to whip up some culinary magic most nights of the week.
I'm a foodie yes, but a little frozen President's Choice from time to time never killed anybody.
At least not yet.
Spend more time naked. (and not just in the closet while slipping on my pj's, yes I've become one of "those" people)
I need to get ummm.."reacquainted" with myself.
Less mommy, more hot mama.
Which leads me to my biggest and best New Year's resolution...
Well all I will say is that it is a resolution that Big Daddy is sure to be supportive of.
and let's just leave it at that.
So Happy New Year.
Got any interesting resolutions you wanna share?

I'm also working on the last one (though it's not an official resolution).

I have a guitar I don't know how to play too! Been meaning to take lessons for years.

Who did the carving in the trunk? And have you seen those faces carved into trees in High Park?
Good luck with resolutions....

So, what you're saying is pretending to be Charo while partaking of copious amounts of wine is a bad thing? Shoot. There goes one of my resolutions.

hahahaha love that image of you strumming your guitar after the wine. can i come next time? My man could probably join you - in the singing and strumming routine - and would be in good company! lol.

thanks for your comment about getting together, you know i'd love that. and my cuticles would too.

i have the cookbook that you leant me at office and i'm game to get those nails done any old time! heck we can follow it up with a martini or two for good measure!

I have so many similar goals for the new year. But that last one, I think it is very similar to one of my tops as well. Need to get back in touch with more than just being a mama.
