Okay I guess you have all made your New Years Resolutions by now. How many of you will keep them?
If you are like me your intentions when you make them are sincere and you really plan to do them but as the days go by you don't
I really need to make some and stick with them. Here are a couple that I am going to do my best to follow through with.
- I will try to go to bed earlier than 2AM. This is a habit that I have fallen into over the past two years. I just can't go to sleep! My mind is racing with things I want to create or that email I forgot to answer or did I check Facebook today or things I need to do the next day. I have to learn to turn it all off and go to sleep. It really is a habit. Nothing that won't be there in the morning right? How many of you have this problem?
Since I retired with my husband back in 2006 being together 24/7 is sometimes nerve wracking!! I used to work 10 to 12 hours a day and my husband traveled a lot back East. He would be gone 10 days at a time three of four times a month and when he was home he was at a car show with his wares every other weekend. We retired and now we are together mostly 24/7. How many of you are retired and spending every day together?
My husband has lots of medical problems and I try to be patient with him but some times I get cranky and wish I had time to myself. He goes fishing many times during the late summer and I spend at least 10 days a year visiting my kids in CA plus I have my Etsy meetings every Thursday and I go workout every day for an hour at 4PM. This is the only thing that keeps me sane !!
How many of you women out there feel like this? Am I the only one? Am I selfish? Am I spoiled? If the truth was known I think my hubby feels the same way. I feel everyone needs time to themselves. These are just a few things that we do to have our "alone time".
It is funny, I will be cleaning house all day or doing laundry and the minute I sit down at my computer he is there just standing and looking at me. "What? I say" . "Want some lunch?" Even though we just had breakfast a couple of hours ago he wants lunch? Just a example here :)
- So another resolution is that I need to be more patient with him and be happy that I was able to retire at such an early age. Stop complaining and be thankful that I have him standing and looking at me.
I am a nice person, really, I am. So those are my most important resolutions and I will work on them.
What are your resolutions?
