New Year's and Non-Resolutions

So what is it about the beginning of the year that makes people feel they have to change everything? What if I had a fantastic 2009 and don't want to change a thing? So instead of making resolutions, I am making a list of things I am not changing.

  1. My diet. I am pregnant and under doctor's orders to gain 25-30 pounds over the next five and a half months. So that means, I am pretty much going to eat whatever I please and can manage not to barf up afterwards.

  2. My habits. Some might think it is a bad habit to spend a good chunk of the day while the husband is at work and the kids are at school on the blog but I consider it time well spend and have no intention of breaking the habit. I am also going to continue reading every book I get my hands on.

  3. My love life. Yeah it is pretty good the way it is.
  4. My job. For the most part being a stay at home is the best job. Other than my husband whom I'd have to deal with anyway, I've got no boss breathing down my neck telling me what to do and when to do it. I also don't have to deal with snarky comments from said boss when my kids are sick and I need to take a day. Also, I don't have to get dressed up if I don't want and I can wear whatever color or style I like. (I personally haven't had to deal with it, but I have heard about coworkers and bosses making comments about the height of necklines and hemlines and dress codes etc. etc. )

Anyway, I hope you start your New Year with at least a couple of things you have no intention of changing instead of resolving to change your whole life.

Sounds like you have a good plan!

I definitely have no intentions of changing my job either!

I have never, ever been told to gain weight. How do I go about being told that??

You make me want to be a stay at home mom.

I'll settle for just sleeping with one.

On second thought, that's probably why I have so many kids.

You certainly have your act together. You know what you want and you appreciate it.

The good part of being pregnant, (besides the baby and all), eating everything and anything you want. sigh. Enjoy.
