You Will Keep Your New Year's Resolution

You planning on making a resolution that's smart, attainable, and perfect for where your life is.

Right now I like the crochet kind of cupcakes best. They are easy to make and have zero calories, plus you can keep them forever & they don't go bad.

I have to make about 30 of the normal kind Sunday.  Monday is DS2's birthday and I have to take 20 to his class for a party, then another 10 or so for when we have friends over that night for a pizza party.  They will be chocolate with white icing and rainbow sprinkles

shopping test

You Are a Reluctant Shopper

You really don't enjoy shopping. For you, it's just another chore.
You approach shopping systematically. You research what you're going to buy and come prepared with a list.

Of all the types, you are the most likely to not buy things you don't need.
You try to de-emphasize stuff in your life. You find shopping and buying things to be a rather empty experience.

What Kind of Shopper Are You?

I don't know how it came up that way. I enjoy shopping, though perhaps it is that I enjoy browsing more than buying.

A quick glance in my closet will show that I buy plenty of things I don't need

my snow test

Your Snow Test Says You're Independent

You feel like something good will happen to you in the next few months.

You don't really like to work, unless work feels like play. You only are successful when you are doing what you love.

You are an independent, individualistic person. You thrive when you're doing your own thing.

Your biggest worry in life is your family. You stay up at night thinking about them.

When it comes time to relax, you really indulge. You are all about your favorite comforts.

time to start again

I'm not good with new year's resolutions because I tend to view every Monday as a day to begin again.  Most of my resolutions fall under the broad category of "BETTER".  I will be better at keeping up with the house cleaning. I will be better at sticking to my meal plan. I will be better about clipping & using coupons. I will be better at not snapping at the kids.

My resolution for this year, if you can call it that, is to not just say I'll do better, but say HOW I will do better.  I will make a cleaning schedule, I'll put the coupons with my groery list, I'll count to 10. Whatever I need to make it happen.
