Many of us are making resolutions we won’t keep with regard to our bodies & image. A friend sent me this quote today that I think I will re-read all year long:
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO-WHAT A RIDE!”
I don’t know who deserves the credit – but I love it!
If you’re crafty, or wish you were – you need to know about Etsy. Etsy is a buy/sell environment for handcrafters. It seems to attract the best of the best. I love crafting, but don’t have the time. Just browsing Etsy gives me the inspiration I need to make the time! Shopping directly from the artist is a warm-fuzzy thing to do. I love to give gifts from sites like this because the gift usually comes with a story about the artist.
If you’re talented – you should be selling on Etsy! It is FREE to get started, they give you a URL to promote (usernameand .etsy.com). That is a truly simple way to get started.
Look at all the FAB finds I came across today!
So like any ‘normal’ mother, a New Year is upon us and it’s time to start thinking about those resolutions. I’d say my list is not unlike most. This year I will:
- get fit
- start eating right (and feeding the kids healthier)
- get organized (luckily Mabels has already helped with that!)
- stop drinking in the afternoon (just seeing if you’re paying attention)
- be more patient with the kids/my husband/my business partners (just seeing if Mumby is paying attention..hee,hee)
I’d guess these are pretty typical on the mommy circuit. Seems the list doesn’t change that much year to year. Strangely, the year plods along and I seem to be satisfied that if by December 31st I look at my kids and the head count is still the same.
